    Hello:
    who can recommend me connectors can be used around 150--200 Celsius temperature?
    normal cable to cable connector all rate under -40--+105 Celsius

    I saw butt/Posi-lock connectors like

    the insulation material also just can reach 150 degree

    is it really no such of insulated connector can be used under 150--200 degree environment ?

    thanks and regards

    Have you tried a WEB search? Or checking manufacturer websites? I found connectors rated at 250-400C without much effort... Requiring insulated connectors reduces options...

    200 degrees C.....that's warm.

    What type of insulation is the wire using?

    Can you rewire, not requiring a connector?

    That insulation is right at your limit.

    You want a rating of at least 300.

    I would want 500. Overkill is advisable with heat.

    We used to use asbestos sleeves for high temp apps.

    Might be outlawed now.

    I am not up on it.....but maybe some thermocouple wiring accessories.

    There will be experts on line in a few hours.

    You'll get fixed up. Be patient.
