Copper Lug Series

Crimping Terminals / Cable Lugs

HellermannTyton offers mechanical and crimp electrical lugs and connectors for underground electrical cables for Heavy Duty, Medium Duty and light weight applications. Connect cables to electrical appliances, other cables, surfaces, or mechanisms with the our Crimping Terminal range.

The words "cable" and "wire" are sometimes mistakenly interchanged. Cables are made from multiple wire strands, while wires consist of a single strand. Both cables and wires may be used with cable lugs of a suitable type.

Cable Lug Series

Copper cable lugs are used to terminate the ends of battery cable and welding cable so they can be connected to other electrical equipment such as starters, fuse blocks, distribution blocks, etc. Cable lugs are highly conductive and can handle very high currents. Our range of Copper Lugs/Links complies to Australian & New Zealand standard AS/NZS4325 Part 1:1995.

Important Crimping Points

Crimping FAQ

Important Crimping Points

A compression terminal with little material can be crimped with a crimp die designed for this geometry. The same terminal crimped with another die from a different system, where the die is designed for a terminal with a larger barrel, would result in lower crimp reduction which would cause overheating due to poor electrical contact.


Assembly Instructions for Cable Lugs and Ferrules

  •   Strip conductor according to insertion depth (+10 % because of length changing of crimp sleeve)
  •   Conductor ends must be cleaned before termination
  •   Insert conductor fully into cable lug or ferrule
  •   Observing the crimping direction (see pic below), crimp the cable lug or ferrule using the appropriate crimping tool.
