Wire Splices Improve Electrical Performance
A new series of splices for in-line and butt splice applications that replace soldering with a high-strength crimp using automatic applicators is being introduced by ETCO Incorporated of Warwick, Rhode Island.
ETCO U-Band and Autoband Splices are designed for making in-line connections and butt splices with solid and/or stranded wires using high-speed automatic applicators. Featuring dimples, serrations, and/or ribs that increase the holding force between the wire and wire ear, they improve electrical performance by mechanically disrupting oxides during crimping.
