AMPLIVAR terminals and splices

Terminate and Splice Magnet Wire

AMPLIVAR terminals and splices are specially designed for copper (Cu) and/or aluminum (Al) magnet wire. Terminals are insulation displacing; so, magnet wires do not require a separate prestripping operation. A unique wire barrel design, with serrations and burrs, produces a superior metal-to-metal compression crimp with excellent tensile strength. Various splices are offered, along with ring tongue and FASTON quick-connect terminals. As many as three magnet wires can be terminated simultaneously in one barrel. In addition, Cu or Al magnet wire, or a combination of both, can be terminated. When required, magnet wire can be combined with prestripped standard solid or stranded lead wires. With new application tooling, AMPLIVAR splices and be bussed together to splice four or more magnet wires in nearly infinite combinations.

Thermal shock cycles

AMPLIVAR splices have machined, sharp edged serrations inside the crimp barrels. These serrations, made by a special production process, pierce the insulating layer of magnet wires in a manner that provides a large contact area.

Combination Terminals

AMPLIVAR Splice and FASTON Quick Connect Receptacle

TE combines two of its products to help with fast compact termination, AMPLIVAR splices with FASTON quick connects. This combination will benefit in removing the necessity for a separate stranded wire terminal connection to input/output devices as well lead wire and smoldering.

  • Higher quality based on high termination rates
  • Crimping capability on three magnet wires collectively
  • Eliminates cold solder points and weld burns
  • Efficiency of production increased

Additional Applications

  • Power tools
  • Garage door openers
  • Electrical utility meters
  • Transformers
  • Fuel pumps
