Connectors and cable terminals are commonly used by installers. In their work it is important to be efficient, safe and to make durable connections. ERKO has created a system of crimping that includes different kinds and sizes of connectors and cable terminals and tools for crimping them. All that to make the work of installers easier
What is the system of crimping offered by ERKO?
With the help of the tool recommended by the manufacturer (manual, hydraulic or battery powered press) we crimp the connector or cable terminal on the wire. The connection is safe and durable, if the whole process is done according to the instructions. Connector or cable terminal must match the material that the wire is made of and the wire cross-section and the type of conductor. The next step is to choose the right form of crimping e.g. hexagonal , with the folding on the conductor, square, trapezoidal, oval or single indent. Then the insulation must be removed on such length that corresponds to the tubular part of the cable terminals or the throat in case of the connector.
You cannot perform crimping on wire that is covered with oxides or corrosive air raids, so first remove them. When everything is ready ,we can start crimping. First insert the wire to the tubular part of the cable terminal or the throat of the connector and with the help of the tool recommended by the manufacturer crimp the terminal or connector on the wire. The crimping is completed when the crimping dies come together or the leakage valve in the hydraulic pump works.
Connectors and cable terminals
The range of this products is really big and diverse. They are suitable for connecting copper wires, aluminum wires and Al-Cu wires. Apart from traditional cable terminals and connectors we can also find shear off screw terminals and connectors with shear off screws and SHARK technology connectors for winding enameled wires.
We can distinguish such products as:
- Ring terminals, spade terminals and pin terminals for copper wires,
- Cable end-sleeves for copper wires,
- Receptacles and claw terminals for copper wires,
- Tubular terminals and connectors for copper wires,
- Al cable terminals and connectors,
- Al-Cu cable terminals and connectors,
- Terminals and connectors for medium voltage,
- Telecommunication cable shielding terminals.
