Crimp connections for the AWG range 32-28
Barrels are crimped onto electrical cables, mainly stranded wires and cable harnesses.
In the process, the cable or wire is pressed into the barrel.
A sector, in which this technique is the preferred one, is the automotive industry.
The special tools are comparatively expensive, but the process can be easily automated.
What is decisive, in the crimping process, is sufficient deformation for the connection without
compressing or damaging the material. The quality can often be assessed optically.
The pressure exerted must remain constant so that all processed connections have the
same electrical resistance.
The smaller the basic grid of the connectors, the larger the AWG number. However, the
smaller the Applicable Wire Gauge, the thicker the cable and the higher the current
The crimp friction-lock pin headers and female headers of the 5635 series (basic grid
1.25mm) and the 569 series (basic grid 1.50mm) have an AWG range of 32-28. Both
series contain housings and female headers with tin plated contacts. The insulators are
made of thermoplastic in accordance with UL904 V-0, the current rating is 1 A, and the
temperature range is stated from -25° bis +85°.
The 569 series is straight and single row and is processed with the THR-soldering. The
5635 series is available as vertical and horizontal SMT variant and is supplied in
tape & reel, in the standing version with pick & place pads.
