A splice connector consists of a plastic clip that has a sharp metal insert that will safely cut through the plastic insulating jackets of two wires and crimps them together. Splice Connectors are used to make quick splices or connections with two or more pieces of wire. These splices are normally crimped or soldered so that the power conducted from the source cable to the next cable is transferred at inacceptable conductivity and pull-out resistance performance level.
Types of splice connectors:
- Crimp Butt Splice Terminal
- Crimp Closed End Terminal
- Crimp Barrel Foil Terminal
- Push Wire Terminal
Frequently asked Questions
What are Crimp Butt Splice Terminals
Crimp butt splice terminals are tube-shaped connectors with two crimps for joining wires in-line. They typically consist of a metal tube that's usually encased in an insulated covering. Crimp butt splice terminals can be used to either change, lengthen or repair conductors in an electrical circuit.
How Do Crimp Butt Splice Terminals Work ?
Crimp butt splice terminals are attached by inserting the stripped ends of two stranded wires into both ends of the terminal. A crimping tool is then used to crimp both ends to ensure a tight connection between the wires.
What are Crimp Closed-End Connectors used for?
Crimp closed-end connectors are used to terminate wires as well as seal them from oxygen and moisture, which would otherwise cause corrosion. Terminators in electronic transmission lines prevent reflections that would occur at unterminated transmission lines, which can lead to distortions like video ghosting in analogue signal systems.
Crimp closed-end connectors come in a wide range of fixed sizes for wires of different diameters. There also are adjustable ones that provide more flexibility.
