Entrelec PVC Insulated Terminals & Splices

Crimp Technology: Connection Capacity: from 0.26 mm² to 6 mm² – 22 to 10 AWG

The PVC pre-insulated solderless Terminals and Splices are designed to answer all standard applications. The quality, performance, and ease of installation make them ideal for many industrial and commercial installations. Carefully engineered Application Tooling has been designed in conjunction with the terminal to promote ease and speed of application. The wire and wire barrel together form a connection of high conductivity and tensile strength, while the tin plating provides good resistance to corrosion.

Sustainable Connection
• Serrations in the crimp barrel provide maximum contact and tensile strength after crimping
• High conductivity copper body
• Tin plating provide good resistance to corrosion

Easy to Install
• Easy installation with TE tooling and crimp-performance guaranteed
• Red, Blue and Yellow color coding to ease the product selection in the workshop and the crimp cavity identification on TE tooling
