IDC Protection Caps

IDC Protection CapsIDC Ribbon cables with transition connectors, due to the nature of Transition connectors we have found that the standard method of supplying this style of product seems to be with placing polystyrene over the pins and masking tape to hold it on. This invariably ends up with the connectors getting to the customer in a damaged state through handling or transportation. Therefore with our ribbon cables we supply them fitted with a plastic pin protector that we have designed and mould at Cable First, this fits over the connector preventing any damage to the pins and is easy to remove at the point of insertion onto the pcb, these caps are then recycled by our customers by sending them back to us for re use cutting down packaging costs and also labour costs at the customers end.
