Terminals are essential for any type of electrical work, whether the job is industrial or for household use.
A terminal is a metal device used for electrical terminations in order to create an electrical connection. Available in various sizes and shapes, terminals are commonly referred to as plugs or jacks.
An insulated terminal, available as heat shrink, nylon or vinyl, works as a non-conductor with it’s protective covering. A non-insulated terminal can be used when the unit does not require safeguards in place.
Terminals, such as ring terminals, splices, spade terminals etc., are used where connection of wiring is essential. This is commonly seen with internal wiring of machines and equipment, as well as all types of vehicles (e.g., land, air, and sea).
