IDC Discrete wire

What is IDC ?
Insulation Displacement Connection is a technique to connect an insulated wire with a contact from a connector. The insulated wire is pressed in the contact with a tool; the contact pierces through the insulation and cuts into the conductor and makes electrical contact. In the same action a strain relief is closed to mechanically lock the wire.
