Good quality; need to solderI bought 2 of these along with the pressure transducer PX-137. It fits nicely onto the transducer pins, but my solid core-22 awg wire fits loosely so I will need to solder in order to ensure a steady connection. 20awg is probably a better fit.
Otherwise, it's great quality!
Is there a drawing or tutorial on how to put the wires in securely? It is not clear how to do it right. Is it supposed to be stripped first or not?

Hi, the CX136 series connectors unfortunately do not have an instruction sheet available at this time since it is a connector that is typically an accessory for some of our pressure transducers. It will accept solid or stranded wire from 22-26 AWG. Do not strip the wire. Looking down into the top of the connector (opposite from the actual sockets) you will see some V shaped metal blades. Insert the wire down into the connector alongside the metal blades. Then pull the wire gently so that it bends across the top of the blades in the groove. You should then be able to pull it firmly down and across the blades so that they cut into the insulation and grip the actual wire. Please email our Tech Support engineer back that connected with you, if you have any further questions. Thank you!
