The FCI Clincher™ connector includes features that optimize reliability at both the termination and disconnect interfaces. “Clinch” cable termination produces gas-tight, contamination-free connections to each conductor. The receptacle connectors utilize FCI’s proven and highly-reliable Mini PV™ contact design. Complementary shrouded PCB headers provide options for latching and proper connector alignment. Contacts are pre-loaded to connector housings enabling mass termination to unprepared cable. The FCI Clincher™ connector mass termination design accelerates cable assembly processes and reduces costs.
These Clincher connectors from Amphenol FCI can be used to terminate Flat Flexible Cables (FFCs) to an easy-to-use standard header. Simply insert the end of the cable into the connector and press it closed. The teeth inside the connector will "clinch" around the conductors and break them out to two female 0.1" spaced pin headers!
