What is a Crimp Terminal?

A crimp terminal is a solder-less electrical connection and is used to terminate stranded wire by inserting the stripped end of the wire into part of the terminal. This terminal is then compressed around the wire, therefore rendering it gas-tight. Barrel-type crimp connections have an oval shape, whereas in open-barrel crimp connections, the section to be crimped has a V or U shape.

Types of Crimp Terminals

There are several different kinds of crimp terminals. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Style, Wire Gauge, Size, Type and Packaging Type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for Wire Gauge are AWG 16-14, AWG 22-16 and AWG 22-18. We also carry crimp terminals with Wire Gauge up to AWG 26-22. There are several types available including Receptacle, Ring and Spade types, among others.

Crimp Terminals from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a complete selection of crimp terminals from several manufacturers that can be used as an electrical crimp connector or as cable crimps, crimp pins or any other types of crimping terminals. Simply choose from the crimp terminal technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed in order to match your specific crimp terminal application needs.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with Molex, Harting, Hirose Electric, JST, Panduit and TE Connectivity, among others. You can easily refine your crimp terminal product search results by clicking your preferred crimp terminal brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Crimp Terminals:

Crimp terminals allow the wires to be easily terminated to screw terminals, quick-disconnect / spade-foot / fast-on type terminals, wire splices and various types of combinations.

Choosing the Right Crimp Terminal:

When you are looking for the right crimp terminals, you can filter the results by various attributes with the parametric search: by Style (Fully Insulated, Non-insulated, Non-mating end insulated,…), Type (Barrel, Spade, Tab,…) and Wire Gauge (AWG 1/0, AWG 16-14, AWG 22-16, AWG 22-18,… ), to name a few. You will be able to find the right electrical crimp connector, crimp pins, cable crimps and other crimping terminals.

Crimp Terminals in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of crimp terminals required is less than a full reel, we offer to customers many of our products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch so you can find out more on how you can avoid possible shortages.
