Cable Crimping Sockets - Cable Lugs
We offer high quality cable end Terminal Lugs, Crimping Sockets, popularly known as Cable Lugs. Cable lugs are devices used for connecting electrical cables to electrical appliances, other cables, surfaces, transformers or other mechanisms. The clamps that connect wires to an automotive battery are a common example of a cable lug, as are the ends of battery jumper cables. Designed to be easily installed and removed for repairs or maintenance, cable lugs area generally used when permanent, direct-fastening methods are not feasible or necessary for wire end termination.
Copper lugs are plated with nickle or tin to protect them from corrosion and enhance shelf life of Copper Electrical Lugs. Aluminium Lugs do not require electroplating of other metals as they are much stable towards corrosion. Copper Crimping Sockets and Electrical Power Cable Sockets for Cable End Terminals are widely used in power and electrical transmission lines where they safely terminate the ends of a power cable or wire to the component application or electrical load.
The connector end of a cable lug is typically chosen for its compatibility to the terminal type or anchoring method. Fork or U-shaped lugs are used for screw terminals; closed-ring or O-type lugs are used for bolt-on applications; and pin or spade lugs are used for press-on pin or blade terminals. A cable lug also serves as a cable-size reducer, thereby allowing thick cables to be attached to a connector with a smaller diameter.
Although cable lugs are widely used for electrical connections, more robust versions are used to anchor non-electrical cables to surfaces, mounting plates, or other cables. Architectural stabilization and safety cables, as well as rigging, are often fitted with load-bearing cable lugs made of steel or iron to secure cables and components. Cable connectors for electrical use that are not subject to tension are made of aluminum, brass, copper, or lead and are sometimes plated to optimize voltage transfer and inhibit metal oxidation.
Cable lugs can be found on the wiring systems of automobiles, electrical boxes, machinery, household appliances, electronics, and other durable goods. For electrical use, cable lugs are typically insulated with rubber or plastic to prevent leakages and accidental transference of electricity to people or nearby electrical components. Preferable Lugs are insulated to prevent electrical hazards, however due to lack of voltage and low intensity current safe for human and other living beings cable lugs could be non-insulated. Example, Telephone and Data Wires.
We offer cable lugs of high quality Copper and Aluminium by selected manufactures who emphasize on quality rather than cheaper price. Copper Lugs of different sizes are available in abundant stock with us.
The most used metals for cabling is Copper and Aluminum, hence Lugs and crimping sockets used should also be made up of Copper and Aluminium of appropriate size as per the cable used. For proper conductivity we suggest use of appropriate cable lugs for copper and aluminum cable and of suitable size to ensure strong and proper crimping for better electrical safety.
We stock Ring Type, Pin Type, Pan Type, Fork Type, Reducer Type, Barrel Type, In-Line Connectors, U-Type Lugs, Spade Lugs, Heavy Duty Lugs, Solder Less Crimping Terminals, and special customized lugs and Crimping Sockets.
All these cable lugs and crimping sockets are approved at various government and private sector organizations. They are compliant to RoHS, CE, CPRI tested and Approved.
