Contacts, Crimp Tools, Assembly Tools

This section of the catalog contains ordering information for contacts. Series 80 Mighty Mouse connectors are supplied with a full complement of crimp contacts. Contacts are terminated to wire using special tools and are snapped into place by hand or with a hand-held insertion tool. Damaged or miswired contacts may be removed from the connector using special extraction tools.

About Crimp Tools

Series 80 signal, power, and coaxial contacts are crimped to wire using Mil-Spec crimpers. Military Specification MIL-DTL-22520 provides the aerospace/defense industry with a common set of rugged, reliable hand crimp tools. This specification controls the voltage drop and tensile strength of crimp terminations.
