TE’s predecessor company AMP began making PIDG products in 1943, when company founder, Uncas A. Whitaker, invented a breakthrough insulation support sleeve that offered better terminal performance under high stress.

TE Connectivity launches a cross linked ruggedized Cat5e rail data cable for use on both on board and trackside applications

TE Connectivity launches a cross linked ruggedized Cat5e rail data cable for use on both on board and trackside applications. (Source: TE Connectivity, PR240)DARMSTADT, Germany – April 12, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced a new Category 5e (Cat5e) quad high speed data cable for railway rolling stock and infrastructure. With its halogen-free flame retardant polymer insulation, the cable complies with EN45545-2, the new European standard covering fire behavior of materials and products in railway rolling stock. This is because its crosslinked outer jacketing provides high resistance to chemicals, mechanical stresses and extreme temperatures. It can be supplied on its own or in pre-assembled assemblies with connectors, for ease and speed of installation.

TE Connectivity introduces Flex Grip wire connectors, enabling quick and easy wire termination

TE Connectivity’s quick and easy to use Flex Grip wire connectors. (Source: TE Connectivity, PR237)DARMSTADT, Germany – February 1, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has launched Flex Grip wire connectors for fast, flexible and easy wire termination. The new connectors, which accommodate solid and stranded wires between 24 and 14 AWG (0.2 – 4.00 mm²), feature an operating lever that allows releasable and reworkable wire termination. The transparent housings enable users to visually confirm the proper wire strip length and insertion for good electrical installation. With the built-in test slot, the installers can conveniently conduct the electrical test while keeping the wires terminated.
