WILMINGTON, Mass. — Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking the new power triple lock (PTL) connector system from TE Connectivity (TE). Delivering high performance from a highly functional design, the PTL connector system was developed and engineered for power and signal applications and offers an array of enhanced features, including: optional connector position assurance (CPA), optional terminal position assurance (TPA), housings capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 150 degrees C (302 degrees F) and an upgraded lanceless contact design.
