Mass termination capabilities of TE Connectivity AMP Connectors' AMP-LATCH family of connectors have helped make ribbon cable popular within the electronics industry. The ability to terminate up to 64 conductors simultaneously, without stripping or otherwise preparing the cable, presents obvious labor savings.
AMP-LATCH connectors are wire-to-board devices used to make the transition between cable and PC board circuitry. They find heavy use within equipment to connect one board to another or one subsystem to another. The connectors are also used in input/output applications, connecting different pieces of equipment.
