To effectively total electrical circuits in industrial, business, and domestic building and construction and during maintenance, the appropriate port is required to efficiently and safely connect the electrical conductors. The variety of assesses associated with each electrical circuit will identify the type and design of port to be chosen for the linking two or more wires. Furthermore, high temperature environments should be considered in the port selection process.
Screw-On Wire Connectors - Standard and Wing-Type Screw-On Wire Connectors are the conventional device used for connecting copper-to-copper electrical wires. A simple and firm clockwise twisting motion of the connector placed over the wires to be connected provides a secure and safe connection. Read and follow the instructions closely to efficiently strip the ends of the wires prior to applying the connector. Care must also be taken to select the correct screw-on connector for the job at hand. Standard and Wing-Type Screw-On connectors are color-coded to recognized market requirements that recognize the determines and count mix capabilities that a particular adapter will accept. A specialized High-Temperature Screw-On Wire Adapter is readily available for applications where temperature levels can reach 150 degrees centigrade. Economy Screw-On Wire Connectors are likewise offered and appropriate for renovating, new building, new installations and many other Do It Yourself and OEM applications. Color-coded for simple size choice.
Push-In Wire Connectors - Instead of twisting the wires together with a screw-on wire port the Push-In Wire Port completes the wire connection by simply inserting the removed wires into port openings in the push-in adapter. There are 6 different push-in ports each capable of accepting 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 8 wires respectively and accommodating 12 to 22 AWG stranded or solid wires. Just copper-to-copper wire connections are defined. The wires are safely held in by stainless steel springs yet they can be quickly eliminated with a left-right twist/pull movement. Please go to the Electrical Basics website to learn more on Push-In Connectors.
Nylon Pigtail Closed End Connectors - Another technique of connecting two or more wires is to place the removed ends into a nylon insulated tin-plated smooth copper metal sleeve and apply a measured crimp pressure to the adapter to protect the wires. The nylon pigtail port is rust and chemical resistant and accepts both solid and stranded wire. These nylon pigtail adapters are specifically fit for applications subject to vibration. Four sizes of nylon pigtail closed end wire ports are offered managing wire mixes ranging from 10 to 22 gauge.
Tap Splices/Quick Splicers - In OEM and Do It Yourself applications, the Tap Splices/Quick Splicers supply an automobile for splicing (connecting) the ends of 2 wires of the exact same wire gauge without stripping the wires. The splice is finished by positioning each of the un-stripped wire ends into the ports on either side of the hinged tap splice. The by closing the tap splice, a connecting-blade is pressed into the wire insulation making contact with the bare wire conductors and finishing the connection. 3 sizes of Tap Splice/Quick Splicers are available to accommodate wire gauges 22-18 AWG; 16-14 AWG and 12-10 AWG. The tap splices are ranked at 600V max and 221 degrees F (105 degrees C).
Screw-On Wire Connectors - Requirement and Wing-Type Screw-On Wire Connectors are the conventional device utilized for linking copper-to-copper electrical wires. Push-In Wire Connectors - Rather than twisting the wires together with a screw-on wire connector the Push-In Wire Adapter finishes the wire connection by just inserting the removed wires into port openings in the push-in port. Nylon Pigtail Closed End Connectors - Another method of linking 2 or more wires is to insert the removed ends into a nylon insulated tin-plated smooth copper metal sleeve and apply a measured crimp pressure to the adapter to secure the wires. Tap Splices/Quick Splicers UL listed - In OEM and DIY applications, the Tap Splices/Quick Splicers supply a car for splicing (connecting) the ends of 2 wires of the exact same wire gauge without stripping the wires.
