    Has anyone here had any pro/con experiences with using the TE Connectivity/AMP brand .100 connectors? Married to TE/AMP's version of the Trifercon connector, 86016-3, it should be roughly the same as a Molex KK .100 with a 08-52-0113 Trifercon, right?

    I ask this because TE still makes 28 position connectors, which are hard to come by.

    Quoted from G-P-E:

    contact = 86016-3 (not 571-860163 as above)

    My apologies, that was the Mouser number! It should be 86016-3. I'll edit my post to avoid confusion if anyone's looking.

    This is the confirmation I needed. Thanks! I will add one more item, cosmetically, they are a few millimeters deeper a connector than Molex, which for me is fine, but as a result the low pressure contacts are a tad bit longer.

    Quoted from G-P-E:

    Good crimps with these pretty much require using the AMP Certi-crimp crimpers...VERY expensive. Part number 91516-1. Can often find used ones on ebay.

    Please tell me crimps are possible without a $800 tool!

    I found a cheaper ($50) that's manufactured by AMP/Tyco model 90202-2 that is supposed to do the same thing.
