Why you should ONLY use heat shrink terminals.. Part 2

In a previous blog, I touched on how big of a problem corrosion is.  The next reason why you should only use sealed, heat shrink connectors is to help protect against wire pull-out.  Wire pull-out is often found in areas of high vibration or where long periods of strain or pulling on your wires may occur.  Connectors that are exposed to weathering and UV rays can also be susceptible to wire pull-out over time.

Electrical Failure can also occur when constant strain and/or vibration causes a wire within your electrical system to come loose.

Electrical Failure can also occur when constant strain and/or vibration causes a wire within your electrical system to come loose.

By using a heat shrink connector, you add extra tensile strength to your crimp and/or solder termination that a standard, unsealed vinyl or nylon connector does not have.

Troubleshooting electrical failure is EXPENSIVE.  Help prevent costly downtime to your electrical systems by using sealed, heat shrink terminals from NSPA today.

Do it Once, Do it Right!
