What are electrical terminals and splices?

Terminals and splices are types of connector that are used with wires and cables to either join them together or connect to a component to allow the electrical current to be used.

What is the difference between a terminal and a splice?

Splices are used to typically join two conductor ends together without a mechanical connection.

Terminals are used to "terminate" a conductor mechanically by crimping or soldering to a component.

Selecting a terminal

They are available in shapes, materials and mounting types. There are also specific colour codes to them that designate the wire size. When choosing a terminal, here are some points to consider:

  • Receptacle size
  • Wire/cable size
  • Wire type
  • termination method
  • Terminal orientation
  • Insulation type
  • Operating temperature
  • Terminal material
