Frequently Asked Questions

What are Crimp Contacts

One of the essential aspects of printed circuit boards is the inclusion of crimp connections (PCBs). Conductive materials are used to create the many electrical components known as contacts. When two contacts are brought close to one another, they can transmit an electrical current.

Electrical current is typically transferred from the connection to the PCB via the contacts, which completes the circuit on the printed circuit board (PCB). Most of the time, the connector will be housed inside a PCB connector housing, mainly when numerous connectors are utilized.

How are crimp contacts used?

In most applications involving PCBs, the creation of circuits is accomplished through the utilization of crimp contacts. To establish these connections, they are joined to a wire or cable in some fashion. Crimp contacts are terminated using a procedure known as crimping. Crimping refers to attaching a wire to a connection using compression and subsequent reshaping of the wire. When properly executed, the typical crimp method results in a connection that is both secure and dependable. For situations that require crimping, it is essential to use a reliable crimp tool to produce a safe connection.

Crimp contacts are used to connect to wires that are the same size as one another. The American Wire Gauge (AWG) standard or the mm2 system is used to measure wires.

Where are crimp contacts used?

Crimp contacts offer a base for PCB connectors to adhere to in the form of a platform. They are frequently utilized in the production of PCB sockets and general PCB prototyping processes. The contact serves as an electrical connection and is utilized in mounting the connector onto the printed circuit board. These contacts can be found in various electronic applications, including home appliances, telecommunications, medical equipment, and automobiles, to name a few.

What are crimp contacts made from?

Crimp contacts can be manufactured from and plated with a wide variety of materials, including bronze, copper, and gold. The conductivity and quality of the connection will differ depending on the different types of materials. Contacts will frequently be plated with silver or gold to ensure a secure connection.

What is contact gender?

Crimp contacts can be found in both male and female varieties. The contacts on a female connector function similarly to a socket, whereas the contacts on a male connector function similarly to a pin or plug.

Crimping vs Soldering Cable Connectors: Which Is Best?

Crimping and soldering are both used to join cables together. The end of an Ethernet cable, for instance, is usually outfitted with a standard called an RJ-45 connection. An RJ-45 connector can be crimped onto an Ethernet cable, or it can be soldered. Both approaches can result in robust and resilient cable connections, but they are not interchangeable.

What Is Crimping?

Crimping is attaching a connector to the end of a cable using a specialized tool called a crimping tool. A crimping tool is used to attach a connector to a cable by clamping the connector in the tool.

The next step is to insert the cable’s bare wire into the connection. When you’re ready to attach the connector to the cable permanently, you must squeeze the crimping tool’s handle.

What Is Soldering?

As an alternative, soldering is a technique for attaching many items by melting a metal known as solder and then applying it at a high temperature. The objects (a cable and a connector) are not heated as they would be during welding. Soldering, alternatively, merely warms the filler metal. The solder is put between the wire and the connector as it melts. When the solder has cooled, it will have hardened and permanently joined the cable to the connector.

Why Crimping Outperforms Soldering for Cable Connections

Crimping is more reliable than soldering when it comes to connecting cables. Primarily, crimping cable connections makes them more durable by sealing them from environmental contaminants. Crimping tools are made to compress the cable tightly around the connector, making a watertight connection. As a result, the crimped cable will be protected from dust, dirt, and liquids. Unfortunately, this sort of security is not provided by soldering.

Crimping provides more secure and long-lasting connections than soldering. Soldering is a technique that uses molten metal to link the cable to the connector permanently. This filler metal degrades with time, which could lead to the connection breaking.

Electricians often feel that crimping is more straightforward than soldering. Although soldering isn’t very challenging, it does require heating the solder and carefully inserting it between the connector and the cable. Crimping is much less complicated, requiring only the insertion of the cable and connector into the crimping tool and applying pressure to the handle.
