  • What is IDC ?
    Insulation Displacement Connection is a technique to connect an insulated wire with a contact from a connector. The insulated wire is pressed in the contact with a tool; the contact pierces through the insulation and cuts into the conductor and makes electrical contact. In the same action a strain relief is closed to mechanically lock the wire.

    Which IDC tool should I use ?
    We have manual hand tools and semi-automatic cable terminator machines depending of the production output need. Check out our cross-reference to find the right version of machine/handtool which corresponds with your connector.
