NTI offers a 24-way hybrid electrical connector with Ergomate technology for improved insertion and assembly. The USCAR-compliant APEX connector is designed for wire-to-wire sealed applications on commercial and off-highway vehicles. The connector uses two sizes of terminals: the APEX 2.8 for up to eight power circuits and the APEX 150 for up to 16 signal or mid-power circuits. Benefits include reduced packaging space and connection time. A grommet sealing system simplifies wire harness assembly, and a geared cam and slider design improves accuracy over traditional assists, according to the company. All forces to make the connection are in one axial direction.
