Holly Electronic Co., Ltd.
An insulation-displacement contact (IDC), also known as insulation-piercing contact (IPC), is an electrical connector designed to be connected to the conductor of an insulated cable by a connection process which forces a selectively sharpened blade or blades through the insulation, bypassing the need to strip the conductors of insulation before connecting. When properly made, the connector blade cold-welds to the conductor, making a theoretically reliable gas-tight connection.
IDC wire cable assemblies with high reliability contacts on 1.27 mm and 2.00 mm pitch, as well as dual beam contacts on 2.54 mm pitch. Choice of socket and plug terminations, low profile and slim body designs; ejector, shrouded and elevated headers for mating, and optional locking clips and caps for more rugged applications.
