ELECTRONIC LEAD KIT
Price - Stock No 40
The objective is to gain experience in the processes involved in mounting both CRIMP and SOLDERED types of terminals to stranded insulated electrical cable.
Crimp type terminals are used almost
exclusively in low voltage applications in the Automotive,
Industrial, and Electronic Industries. The claims are
that they will give more reliable service through the range of
demands put on them, standing up better than soldered
types to the rigours of dust and grime, vibration, heat, and corrosive
solvents and chemicals.
A CRIMPING TOOL IS REQUIRED TO ASSEMBLE BOTH TYPES OF TERMINAL IN THE KIT.
HEATSHRINK TUBE is made from Poly Vinyl Chloride (P.V.C.), a tough plastic that is resistant to abrasion and chemical attack and has in-built inhibitors that protect it from Ultraviolet (sun's) rays. Its electrical insulating property is excellent. The tubing is heated and expanded in manufacture, and then cooled while still expanded. PVC is a Thermoplastic which has a "memory". When heat is applied to the tube, it "remembers" its former size and shape, and it tries to return to that former state, squeezing tightly around the terminal. Specification of Heatshrink is usually to shrink to about one-third of its expanded size.
