The company is introducing a new series of 15-A male twist lock terminals that facilitate pre-molded applications for electric power cord manufacturers. The male twist lock terminals are offered in NEMA L5-15P (125 V), NEMA L6-15P (250 V), and NUIA L7-15P (277 V) configurations for molded electric power cords. Featuring one crimp ear that accommodates wire sizes from 10 to 16 AWG, the terminals reportedly eliminate the need for tooling changes from one wire size to another. The terminals are supplied in strip form, which is said to help increase production speed, or as loose pieces to let manufacturers use their existing attaching equipment. The male twist lock terminals are constructed from 260 cartridge brass and are said to help reduce inventory requirements by accommodating several wire sizes. Samples and literature are available.
