Non-Insulated Terminals are something of an oddity in the world these days, though not because of their lack of insulation, but more in their difficulty of use. Many would complain about the "crimp" of the terminal never seems to work correctly; this is because they actually have a special crimper (Ratchet Crimper) or are designed to be soldered onto the wire itself, ensuring a very solid connection. Though you will hear of some that can work these connectors with just a normal pair pliers. The choice however, is always up to you. As an added note: some after using these terminals, like the option of covering them with heatshirnk; making colors mean your own thing, and customizing your installation even further.
- Example of use:
The Ring terminal connectors are a tried and tested terminal type that has been around since 1930, which the first ring terminal was invented to enable faster and more reliable automotive electrical installations; and are still used frequently in many different electronic systems. Ring terminal connectors are designed in a way so that you can crimp a wire to the terminal, then secure the connection using a screw, bolt, or bolt-nut combination (like on Starter solenoids), making a very effective and secure Ground-connection, or ensuring a power (or sensing) wire stays in it's place.
