pre-insulated terminals consist of ring, fork and pin terminals made of
copper, and flat or round pin terminals of brass or tinned bronze.
All terminals are electrolytically tinned for maximum corrosion
Insulating sleeves are usually made of PC, which has excellent
deformation characteristics and retains its shape after compression,
thus retaining its vibration support. The difference between PVC and PC
is that PC is halogen free. The sleeve colours define the
Easy-entry guides the conductors strands properly into the
terminal. It is easy to guide the conductor correctly into the
terminal, since the insulation sleeve is of the "easy-entry"
The terminals are marked with a logo, the cross-sectional area and where
applicable the screw diameter. When crimping is completed with the
correct tool, the Elpress dies or tools stamp the insulating 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
