The FASTON connector is a low-cost alternative for 0.250 x 0.032 tab connections, the company says. This product is suitable for applications with few mating and unmating cycles and can be used in applications with limited current switching or cycling requirements, states the manufacturer. It has a PVC insulated wire barrel for wire strain relief. The terminal body is composed of tin-plated brass, and the wire support is tin-plated copper. Three wire ranges are available: 22-18, 16-14 , and 12-10 AWG. The connectors can be ordered as loose pieces or on tape.
