Air Treatment

Humidifiers, dehumidifiers and air purifiers need energy-efficient operation and reliable always-on connections. TE makes the connectivity solutions that can help engineers breathe a little easier as they innovate applications.


Coffee Makers

Switches, timers, thermostats, PCB applications or whatever you are trying to figure out how to make a more dependable and cost-effective design, TE has the advanced connectivity solutions that will help brew innovative answers.


Floor Care

Upright and canister vacuums, robotic vacuums and floor cleaners need powerful motors to operate efficiently. Whether it’s magnet wire terminals and equipment that enhance motor reliability or robust connectors that ease assembly, TE has the connectivity solutions that can help you address your design challenges.


Rice Cookers

Induction technology, touch digital controls, e-displays and smart features are just a few of the engineering hurdles facing manufacturers. TE has the reliable sensors, relays, terminals and connectors that help engineers design it all in the most cost-effective way.


Other Small Home Appliances

Although mini-ovens, slow cookers, blenders and bread makers perform different tasks, they face similar engineering design challenges. From miniaturized PCB connectors to touch-sensitive switches and sensors, TE will partner with you to find the connectivity solutions that will keep the kitchen central to mast home.

Universal MATE-N-LOK Connectors

Universal MATE-N-LOK Connectors

Universal MATE-N-LOK connectors utilize a combination of pins and sockets intermixed in the plug and cap housings to achieve excellent electrical performance in a 0.250” [6.35 mm] pitch design. Rated to 600 VAC/VDC and 19 A, these offer wire-to-wire, wire-to-panel, and wire-to-board configurations. Housings feature positive polarization, positive locking, and rear cavity identification for easy, error-resistant assembly. Contacts are enclosed in the housings, have low mating force, and are removable for system flexibility.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Centerline: 6.35 mm
  • Current Rating: 19 A
  • Voltage Rating: 600 VAC
  • Flammability: UL 94 V-0, UL 94 V-2

MAG-MATE Terminal

MAG-MATE Terminals

TE offers a full selection of Standard MAG-MATE Insulation Displacement Crimp (IDC) terminals for magnet wire terminations. MAG-MATE terminals are available in poke-in, poke-in tab, splice, crimp wire barrel, solder post, quick connect tab, pin, and receptacle styles. Standard MAG-MATE terminates magnet wire ranging from 34-12 AWG [0.16 -2.05 mm]. Each IDC slot size terminates a range of up to four consecutive magnet wire sizes. Two magnet wires with the same diameter can be terminated in one terminal except as noted.

Key Features & Benefits

  • High speed, fully automated integrated systems provide uniform terminations reliably at the lowest possible applied cost

Heat Shrink Tubing

Heat Shrink Tubing

Heat Shrink Tubing provides electrical insulation, mechanical protection, environmental sealing, and strain relief for applications such as back-end connector sealing, breakouts, and connector-to-cable transitions. It is a solid alternative to taping, molding, or potting. When heated, it conforms to the size and shape of the substrate beneath, enabling quick and easy installation. Its high expansion ratio makes it possible to repair most damaged cable jackets without removing connectors. Available in a wide range of materials, colors, and sizes, heat shrink tubing is delivered in forms such as spools, 1.2m lengths, and cut pieces. Clear types permit inspection of covered components and offer excellent transmittance of light.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Spool lengths, nonstandard cut lengths, expanded/recovered I.D's
  • Multiple products are offered in flame-retardant (FR) versions
  • Meet AS23053 and MIL-PRF-46846 standards - Single Wall
  • Comply with AS23053 standards - Dual Wall, Heavy Duty, Harnessing, Specialty
  • Most are UL recognized/CSA certified
  • SPC inspection/data on cut pieces
  • Custom specs and tolerances
  • Various materials meet specific requirements

Splice solid and stranded wire with confidence. TE’s broad range of splices allows you to splice solid or stranded wire - copper, aluminum or a combination of both. Whether you need to splice 30 AWG solid copper magnet wire or 4/0 stranded aluminum wire, we offer an effective solution. Choose from crimp, insulation displacement connection (IDC), or other types of splice technology applied manually or with semi- or fully-automated equipment. Our expansive range of options allows you to shop for a splice meeting your requirements for connection reliability and for cost-effective application, whether you need to make millions of splices in an OEM application or a few repair splices.
