Cable or Wire Lug/Termination

Cable or wire lugs are devices that are used for connecting cables to electrical appliances, other cables, surfaces, or mechanisms. The clamps that connect wires to an automotive battery are a common example of a cable lug, as are the ends of battery jumper cables. Termination of a signal involves providing a terminator at the end of a wire or cable to prevent an RF signal from being reflected back from the end, causing interference.

Butt Splice/Barrel Lug
A butt splice is a connector that is a form of so called “crimp” connectors. Crimp connectors are used to terminate wires safely, or connect one wire to another. The wire is inserted into the connector. Then the connector is “crimped”, usually with pliers. A barrel lug is a protrusion of a firearm’s bolt that locks it into the receiver or barrel.

Copper Compression Lugs
Compression connectors provide reliable permanently crimped connections in sizes that are matched for each conductor size. They are easy to install and provide a simplified means of inspection of a proper crimp. They are manufactured from seamless copper tubing for high conductivity and can be used for applications up to 35 KV with Proper High Voltage Insulation Techniques.

Mechanical Lugs
Mechanical lugs are heavy duty lugs that are typically ring shaped and are usually made of high-grade electrolyte copper, but they also come in aluminum. They are used for big wires, such as cables.

Split Bolts
Split bolt connectors can be used for copper-to-copper wire connections. These are durable, high strength wire connectors for industrial electrical applications. Most AWG wire sizes are available.

Tap Connectors
Tap connectors are new laborsaving, self-insulating tap and splice connectors that give you a competitive edge. Tap connectors are one way to significantly reduce the labor of tapping and splicing. The continued evolution of electrical tap and splice devices has led the industry to obtain code approval for the tap and splice connectors.
