Overview — Why Sta-Kon 
® 
Terminals Are Better 
Funnel Entry Barrel 
Deep Internal Serrations
 After the insertion of a wire into the terminal’s barrel, a deep, serratedinterior ensures a large area of contact that lowers the resistance of aconnection. With the mechanical force of the tool, the wire strands coldflow into the serrated interior. This guarantees electrical resistance lowerthan the wire to which it is applied. This feature also prevents pullout fromvibration and mechanical strain. Deep internal serrations can be comparedto the effective holding power of a well-treaded tire on a wet highway.
Funneled Terminal Barrel Entry
This feature makes wire insertion faster and easier. A funneled barreleliminates wire strand “hang up” upon insertion into the terminal’s barrel.The loss of even a couple of wire strands can have negative results onelectrical efficiency and resistance to mechanical strain.

Long Barrel Design
If lowering electrical resistance, preventing wire pullout, eliminatinga “missed” crimp, and an insulator that stays on the barrel duringinstallation are your goals, then you must design a terminal with a longbarrel. Most competitive barrel lengths range from 20–50% shorter thanSta-Kon

terminals. The results are usually a stream of electrical failure,rework, and added expense. This also provides the insulator with additionalsurface area, holding tight to the barrel. Many competitive insulatorscome off during crimping due to a limited barrel length.

Brazed or Overlapped Seam
 A long barrel design is of little value unless it is one solid piece. That is whyThomas & Betts brazes the seam on our vinyl insulated Sta-Kon

terminalsand overlaps the seam on nylon insulated terminals. Many competitive terminalshave butted seams. This means increased chances for wirestrand loss, poorresistance, wire pullout, and electrical failure. If the installer doesn’t positionthe tool exactly on the correct spot on the barrel, there’s likely going to bean improper termination. The butted seam can also fold due to tool-appliedpressure piercing the terminals insulation from the inside out. With a brazedor overlapped seam, the installer can crimp anywhere along the barrel’s surface.This provides up to 2.5 times the tensile strength of a butted seam terminal,guaranteeing proper electrical flow, void free.
Selective Annealing
Because of the mechanical strength of copper, an installer canexperience fatigue associated with repeated installations. For thisreason, Thomas & Betts puts its terminals through one more stepcalled selective annealing. This process leaves the barrel softenough to crimp and form around the wire. However, we “cold form” thetongue during the manufacturing process so it remains strong. This is done sothe tongue can withstand repeated bends and bolt tightening strain commonin most electrical installations. Many competitors attempt to accomplishsimilar goals by removing valuable material or using a softer copper, whichhas lower conductivity. This increases electrical resistance as well as the oddsfor shorting and downtime.

Terminals Are Better 
 Anti-Rotational Tongues
This is a unique feature to the Thomas & Betts ring tongue terminal. Thisdesign prevents terminal shorting by keeping the terminal secure in theterminal block. The installer can place a greater number of terminals closertogether without worry.
Proper Identification
We identify all terminals with Thomas & Betts initials, T & B. We also indicatewire and stud sizes. These markings are clearly visible on the surface of thetongue, taking any guesswork out of replacing or reordering additional parts.Our superior bright plating also assists in visibility.

To ensure a Sta-Kon

terminal is properly plated and insulated, all our partsare put through a process that cleans and smooths the terminal of anymanufacturing by-products — mainly grease, oils, and sharp edges. Manycompetitive products do not put their product through such rigorous finishing.
