TE Connectivity (TE) is implementing two improvements to its SEACON Micro WET-CON connectors that is designed to result in faster product turn-around and expedited delivery to customers.
Lead-Free and RoHS Compliant – In order to meet international standards, TE Connectivity began manufacturing all Micro WET-CON connectors lead-free and Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) compliant starting on March 1, 2018. Previously, customers had to special order products that met these standards.  There will be a brief transition period while old inventory is depleted, so customers are advised to specify at the time of ordering if they require RoHS compliant products.
Convenient Standard Lengths – Effective April 1, 2018, single-ended Micro WET-CON connectors will be available with standard cable lengths in the following sizes: 1m, 2m and 5m cable on inline connectors; 0.5m hook-up wire on bulkhead connectors. Longer lengths can still be ordered on demand. TE will stock its U.S. and U.K. facilities with the standard-length products, which will contribute to decreased lead times. Following April 1, accessories like locking sleeves will be sold separately.
