TE Connectivity (TE) offers a 4.8 mm (0.187 in.) series FASTON receptacle terminal that mates with tabs that are either 0.51 mm (0.020 in.) or 0.81 mm (0.032 in.) thick. By mating with various thickness tabs, this straight quick-connect crimp receptacle simplifies connections in appliances, industrial goods, HVAC systems and more.

Designed to mate with standard 4.8 x 0.81 mm (0.187 x 0.032 in.) or 4.8 x 0.51 mm (0.187 x 0.020 in.) tabs with retention holes, the receptacle, part number 2293255-1, complies with UL 310 and IEC 61210 (VDE 613) standards. The open barrel, F-crimp design is only 15 mm (0.59 in.) long, allowing it to fit where some other straight receptacles will not. It incorporates insulation support and accommodates 0.5 – 1.50 mm2 (20 – 16 AWG) wires with 2.3 – 3.3 mm (0.09 – 0.13 in.) diameter insulation. It is UL recognized, file E66717, and VDE approved, file 40045816.

A related new FASTON receptacle, part number 2293895-1, also accommodates tabs 0.5 mm and 0.8 mm thick. It is available for 1.0 – 2.50 mm2 (17 –14 AWG) wires with 3.0 – 4.3 mm (0.12 – 0.17 in.) diameter insulation.

The receptacles, stamped from 0.32 mm (0.0126 in.) tin-plated brass, are rated 250 VAC. The 2293255-1 terminal is rated up to 12 amps with 1.5 mm2 wire, while the 2293895-1 is rated up to 20 amps with 2.5 mm2 wire.
Supplied end-to-end on reels, the new terminals are designed to be machine applied using TE’s OCEAN applicators. The applicators are offered with various options and can be used in several types of presses and leadmakers. Additionally, a TE hand tool is available for prototyping, harness repair and other low-volume requirements.
The terminals are available with a four week ARO lead time. Price is available upon request.
