TE Connectivity MTA-100 IDC Closed End Receptacle Connectors

MTA-100 closed end MTA-100 IDC receptacle connectors for the mass termination of wires in a wide variety of applications. The connectors are pre-loaded with dual beam slotted IDC contacts which eliminate the need for wire stripping and enable one-step assembly. The contacts are also lubricated for protection against fretting corrosion. These MTA-100 IDC receptacle connectors are end to end stackable and have a friction lock mechanism to ensure a secure mating connection. The housings are incorporate moulded ribs to prevent reverse mating and versions are also available with polarizing tabs for extra alignment.

Features and Benefits

• IDC contacts for one-step assembly
• End to end stackable
• Friction lock mechanism for secure mating connection
• Moulded ribs to prevent reverse mating
• Polarizing tabs for extra alignment


These MTA-100 IDC receptacle connectors are suitable for mass terminating wires in a wide range of applications. In the automotive industry, these connectors can be used for body systems, chassis systems, driver information, safety and security systems. In the computer and consumer electronics industries applications include desktop PCs, notebooks, servers, storage and workstations.

TE Connectivity MTA-100 2.54mm Interconnect System

MTA-100 (Mass Termination Assembly) 2.54 mm pitch connector system for labour and cost saving mass termination of wires in wire-to-board and wire-to-wire applications. These MTA-100 connectors are based on IDC (insulation displacement contact) technology allowing one-step assembly and eliminating the need for wire stripping saving both time and cost. Using production hand tooling these MTA-100 IDC connectors can be quickly assembled to 28 AWG to 22 AWG discrete wire or notched ribbon cable. The MTA-100 connector system consists of female IDC connectors and PCB headers. The housings of the IDC connectors are colour coded according to wire size.
