The AMP COPALUM Sealed Terminals are designed especially for solving the inherent problems of terminating aluminum conductors. These connectors are terminated to stranded aluminum wire using a “dry crimp.” This technique eliminates the need for an inhibitor agent to break down the highly tenacious and inert oxides that form on aluminum conductors. An extremely efficient and reliable crimping method, the dry crimp also produces a sealed connection that better prevents re-oxidation and corrosion when intimate terminal/conductor contact is achieved.
Each connector body is constructed of tin-plated copper and houses a nickel-plated brass insert and funnel. The funnel is designed to better prevent wire strands from hanging up when inserted into the wire barrel. The perforated insert enhances reliability for the terminal and splice when crimped to the aluminum/copper conductors.
