RAST is the industry standard connector for the Home Appliance market. RAST is an IDC (Insulation Displacement Connector), where the insulation of the cable is pierced by the terminal within the connector during assembly. This reduces process time; removing the need to cut, strip and crimp individual cables. High-speed automatic termination equipment is used to make high output, high quality RAST harnesses. Molex's RAST family offers connectors and headers based on 2.50 and 5.00mm pitch, covering signal and power applications up to 16 Amps. All series fulfill the RAST standard and meet Glow Wire and Hot Wire Ignition requirements for self-extinguishing products. There are many RAST connector variations to meet all customer requirements with coding, latching options - both internal and external, and polarization features. Connectors can be assembled through a header, or direct to the PCB. Molex also offers next generation RAST connectors that fulfill the RAST standard and provide customers with further options at a reduced cost. RAST connectors are used in signal and power applications across all home appliances including washers, dishwashers, dryers, fridges and cookers. The use of RAST is also increasing in the Automotive market, and can be used in other markets where automated, high-volume harness production is required. If you require a global standard product to cover your power and signal requirements in high-volume harness production applications, RAST is your solution. Less
