NEW… Crystal Clear Sealed Window Butt Connectors

Check out NSPA’s most recent line of Sealed Heat Shrink connectors… OptiSeal.

OptiSeal offers a unique crystal clear opportunity to visually inspect the integrity of your electrical system.

OptiSeal offers a unique crystal clear opportunity to visually inspect the integrity of your electrical system.

OptiSeal offers the following visual assurances:
• Ensures the wire is crimped to connector
• Ensures the center of crimp barrel is properly crimped
• Crystal Clear™ waterproof insulation allows for indisputable inspection of the wire’s condition

OptiSeal Components:

The Crimp Barrel:
• Window in center of connector assures that wire is seated properly and that the wire is being crimped to the connector
• Color-coded stripes identify wire gauge size to be used with connector
• Color-coded stripes also indicate/guide the installer to the proper crimp position on the
center of the barrel
• Seamless barrel butt connectors ensure superior crimp performance
• Wire-stop in butt connectors prevents over insertion of wire

The Adhesive-Lined Heat Shrink Tubing:
• Crystal Clear™ tubing provides optimal clarity for visual inspection
• Adhesive-Lined tubing ensures a waterproof seal
• Wire gauge imprint simplifies wire size identification

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.
