Insulation-Displacement Connector

An insulation-displacement connector (IDC), insulation-displacement technology/termination (IDT) or insulation-piercing connector (IPC) is an electrical connector designed to be connected to the conductor(s) of an insulated wire or cable by a connection process which forces a selectively sharpened blade or blades through the insulation, bypassing the need to strip the wire of insulation before connecting. When properly made, the connector blade cold-welds to the wire, making a highly reliable gas-tight connection.
