Elpress’ pre-insulated terminal consist of ring, fork and pin terminals made of copper and flat and round pin terminals of brass or tin bronze.
All terminals are electrolytically tinned for maximum corrosion protection.
The insulating sleeve is normally made of polycarbonate, which has excellent deformation characteristics and keeps its form after crimping and thereby its vibration support. The colour on the sleeve indicates the area range.
It is easy to guide the cable properly in the cable clip as the insulation sleeve is of an “easy-entry” type, which means that it guides the cable correctly in the clip.
The terminals are marked with logotype, the cross-sectional area and where applicable the screw diameter. When an adequate crimping is done with the right tool, Elpress' crimping dies/pliers make an impression on the insulation sleeve so that all connections can be checked afterwards. Except for the hobby tools, there is a built-in full closure system which ensures that the complete crimping procedure has been performed – a condition for ensuring a professional and high quality job.
