Crimp Terminals & Connectors
Crimp terminals is a generic terminology that we use to describe connectors & terminals that do not require a connector body to terminate the wire. Crimp terminals come in several different types, varieties, colors, dimeters, specifications, insulations types and designs. Crimp terminals are often designated as the following types:
|Butt Connectors & Splices||Wire Pins||Quick Disconnects|
|Bullet Connectors or Snap Connectors||X Connectors||PCB Tabs|
|Closed End Connectors||Battery Terminals||Ring Terminals|
|Hook Terminals||Fork Terminals||IDC & T-Tap Connectors|
|Parallel Connectors||Spade Connectors|
CrushinAG carries 3 different “Brands” of crimp terminals & connectors:
Crimp terminals & connectors are available as INSULATED & NON-INSULATED. When it comes to which insulated version to use, we prefer to use the Molex Perma-Seal™. These terminals shrinks at a lower temperature (90°C) and shrinks up to 40% quicker than most of the competitive products. They create a waterproof adhesive seal, have simple installation, tough and field environment rated and versatile. Now, does this mean that it is all the brands we recommend? No. 3M Scotchlok™ is a more than suitable alternative.
PRO-TIP Working in a confined space or small diameter environment? Try using a NON-INSULATED terminal coupled with double wall heat-shrink.
