KYOCERA AVX 9177 Gas-Tight Dual-Contact SSL IDC Connectors

KYOCERA AVX 9177 Dual-Contact Solid State Lighting (SSL) Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDCs) are surface mount connectors that accept 20AWG to 14AWG wires with an insulation diameter ranging from 2.75mm to 4.25mm. The 9177 IDCs support a 15A current rating with two large SMT solder tails per wire to provide maximum PCB stability. With a 1p-3p configuration, the connectors are end-stackable for higher pin counts. The connectors allow simplicity in connecting individual wires directly to a PCB and have been tested to automotive levels of shock, vibration, and temperature cycling to demonstrate reliability and robustness. KYOCERA AVX 9177 Dual-Contact SSL IDC Connectors are designed for automotive and industrial applications.


  • IDC contact provides a gas-tight connection to the PCB for long term reliability
  • Connector housing captures the wire insulation for positive strain relief
  • Tested to automotive levels on shock, vibration, and temperature cycling for reliability
  • Low and high volume assembly tools to match production volumes
  • Reduced total applied cost versus solder or crimp processes
  • High-temperature insulator capable of +260°C reflow soldering processes


  • 15A/Contact current rating
  • 600VAC voltage rating
  • -40°C to +125°C operating temperature range
  • 3 cycles durability
  • Materials
    • Nylon 46, UL 94V-0 insulator material
