An electrical crimp is a type of solder less electrical connection. Micro crimp connectors
are typically used to terminate stranded wire. Crimping is normally performed by first inserting the terminal into the crimp tool. The terminal must be placed into the appropriately sized crimp barrel. Crimp-on connectors are attached by inserting the stripped end of a stranded wire into a portion of the connector, which is then mechanically deformed/compressed (crimped) tightly around the wire. Sunkye Micro crimp style connectors matching with standards MIl-DTL-83513
and accept standard jackscrews and jackpots, making it ideal for flex-to-board applications, which widely used in the military area, aerospace, aviation, electrical, ship-building, defense system, etc.

Frequently asked questions about Micro Crimp Connector
Are crimp style connectors good?
A good micro crimp connector can be used on solid or stranded conductors, and provides a good mechanical and electrical connection
Is it better to solder or crimp?
Crimping offers stronger, more reliable connections than soldering. Soldering uses heated metal to join the cable to the connector. Over time, this filler metal will degrade, which may cause the connection to fail. Most electricians will agree thatcrimping is also easier than soldering.
What is micro crimp style connectors used for？
Crimp connections are used typically to fix connectors, such as BNC connectors, to coaxial cables quickly, as an alternative to soldered connections. Typically the maleconnector is crimp-fitted to a cable, and the female attached, often using soldered connections, to a panel on equipment.
