TE Connectivity’s PIDG terminals and splices are designed for uniform reliability in the most difficult circuit environments. They consist of a tin-plated copper or tin-plated phosphor bronze body for spring spades, plus a copper and colored insulation sleeve fitted over a terminal barrel.
The many millions of TE Connectivity AMP Brand terminals that are still deployed twenty years after installation are a testament to the rigorous testing and research that went into their design and manufacturing.
The specialized design of tool dies and the construction of the terminal allows for uniform insulation thickness under crimping pressure, transmitting this pressure evenly to the center of the crimping area. Many of TE Connectivity’s PIDG terminals meet or exceed the requirements of MIL-T-7928, Type II, Class 1 and 2.
