Nov 23, 2009, 18:09 ET from Heilind Electronics

WILMINGTON, Mass., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect, electromechanical and wire & cable products in North America, together with Tyco Electronics (TE), the world's largest interconnect manufacturer, have re-energized their industry-leading ribbon cable connector focus with the release of a newly updated, consolidated and reorganized Ribbon Cable Interconnect Solutions catalog and a complete ribbon cable product stocking initiative. The mass-termination capabilities of ribbon cable connectors have long made them one of the most popular connector technologies in the electronics industry. The ability to terminate up to 64 conductors simultaneously, without stripping or otherwise preparing the cable, significantly reduces total applied costs while delivering a highly reliable connection. Though most often used in wire-to-board applications, TE also manufactures and Heilind stocks many board-to-board and wire-to-wire solutions. TE's ribbon cable family of connector products is available in a wide range of pitches, mounting styles and locking types.
