Terminals for wire sizes 26 to 10 AWG are made from pure copper and are electro-tin plated to assure corrosion resistance. Serrate V grooves inside the barrel of each terminal grip the wire for maximum holding power. Catalog includes information on full line of ring terminals, spades, hooks, splices, butts, quick disconnects, and tubular compression lugs, as well as specialty and MIL-Spec terminals. In addition, crimping tools from hand-ratchet types to pneumatic and automatic machines are described and illustrated.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
