IDC Connectors

The IDC connector is also known as an insulation-displacement contact, or insulation-piercing contact. It is a connector designed to work with ribbon cables, and uses sharp contacts to clamp onto the wire, piercing the insulation and connecting with the wire in a secure and convenient way.
This simple connection principle is ideal for multi-stranded ribbon cables, as it allows the connector to make an assured connection across the multiple wires without having to strip the wires. This cold welding connection may ensure a gas tight connection between the wire and connector.
The RS range of IDC connectors includes plug and sockets in configurations to suit your purposes.
Applications
IDC connections are often used low voltage applications, such as to connect computer drives internally or to connect computer peripheries. They are often cited as preferable due to their having much faster installation speeds than conventional wiring connectors.
IDC connectors also have an advantage in that several IDC connectors can be attached to the same length of ribbon cable, able to handle multiple connections economically, saving time in more complicated installations.
Features and Benefits
• Fast cold welding connection
• Cost effective
• Versatile
• Quick termination to wire.
