Multi Purpose

This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the Multi Purpose category on DigiKey.com

Products in the multipurpose contact family are interconnect system components which are typically applied to a conductor by means of a crimp connection, which can be used with multiple styles of corresponding housings. This allows the use of the same contact part number and application equipment to assemble similar connectors which are resistant to incorrect mating.
