Pre-Insulated Diamond Grip (PIDG) terminals and splices are designed for uniform reliability in the most difficult circuit environments, especially where high vibration and wire movement are factors. PIDG terminals and splices can be bent in any direction without fraying the wire insulation or breaking the conductor, ensuring high reliability. PIDG is available in ring, flag, spade, knife, hook, and flanged tongue terminals, as well as parallel and butt splices.
PIDG terminals and splices consist of a nylon or PVC insulated copper body, plus a copper sleeve that crimps to the wire insulation for added support. This unique design is vibration resistant and allows the wire to bend in any direction without damaging the wire insulation or conductor.
The design of the crimping dies and construction of the terminal allow for uniform insulation thickness under crimping pressure, transmitting the pressure evenly to the center of the crimp area. This produces a crimp and terminal that are alike in appearance and performance. PIDG products are available as rings, spades, flanged spaded, slotted rings, splices in several other varieties and sizes.
Applications include instruments/controls, lighting, power supplies, panel boxes, transportation, lifting equipment, motors, aerospace settings, appliances, and many more.
