TE Connectivity has recently unveiled the power triple lock (PTL) connector system. The company's latest device offers a centerline spacing of 6.0mm and two locking options: the connector position assurance (CPA) and the terminal position assurance (TPA). The CPA option secures the connector so that it remains intact and engaged, while the TPA option prevents the terminal from backing out and ensures that contacts are fully seated in the connector.

An anti-snag locking latch on the plug housing prevents wires from becoming tangled under the latch. Both panel-mount and free-hanging receptacles are part of the product line, and four keying options are available to prevent mismating. Future additions will include board-mount headers.

PTL connectors are offered with 2 to 15 circuit positions and in a variety of housing choices, including standard 105°C, high-temperature up to 150°C, and glow wire (750°C no flame) for IEC60335 compliance. The devices have a voltage rating of 600VAC or VDC and a current rating of up to 20A. In addition to household appliances, the connectors can be used in automotive, commercial building, HVAC, and industrial machinery applications.

Further information regarding the PTL connector system can be found here.
