This open barrel rings and spades are manufactured in strip form and supplied on reels for Automachine termination. In the standard “F” crimp configuration, the open barrel consists of two “U” shaped wings that are crimped around the conductor strands and butted together into a tight seam. The crimping action of the application equipment is a precise operation that creates the proper crimp with each cycle of the machine. This ensures uniformity of all the crimp terminations.
The insulation support was a developed feature for applications where vibration tends to be excessive. The insulation support consists of two additional “U” shaped wings which are wrapped around the wire insulation. This prevents harmful flexing of the wire at the termination point where the wire is rigidly crimped to the wire barrel and deters fraying of the insulation. Because it increases the already significant tensile strength of the conductor crimp, the vibration resistance is great enough for more severe applications.
Open Barrel Rings and Spades are designed for wire sizes ranging from 28 AWG to 6 AWG. They come in a variety of stud sizes. These terminals are made from a variety of base materials and platings depending on your application (i.e. ambient temperature, humidity, and chemical exposure).
To help you choose the product best suited to your requirements, the following information about each terminal is shown in tabular form: wire size range, insulation diameter, stud size, stock thickness, type of base material, plating and physical dimensions.
