TE Connectivity announces improved positioning accuracy with K-Type markers

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has updated its K-Type markers, used to identify wire bundles, cables, pipes and conduits. The oval shaped profile has been designed to allow each pre-printed marker to be accurately positioned onto a carrier strip. The marker and carrier strip assembly are attached to the substrate using cable ties.

‘TE K-Type markers are designed to offer flexibility when it comes to wire and cable identification,’ said Philippe Contri, TE product manager. ‘K-Type markers are a cost-effective, versatile marking system that can be used for post termination or where retrofitting is required. They feature self-extinguishing properties and resistance to fluids including those used in mass transit, aviation and military.’

K-Type markers come in one standard size to fit on carrier strips that can hold from seven to 18 markers and are made from a plasticized PVC material, supplied as internationally color coded yellow or white with pre-printed black legends. They are suitable for industrial applications with an operating range from minus 45° C to 70° C (minus 49° F to 158° F).

K-Type markers are RoHS and REACH compliant and meet the BS 6746C:1993 standard for color chart for insulation and sheath of electric cables and the IEC 60304 Standard Colors for Insulation for Low Frequency Cables and Wires.
