The AMP wire pins consist of a solid metal pin with or without plastic insulation on the barrel end and stranded wire enters the rear of the pin then retained with a crimp. The pins are said to provide easy and reliable connection of flexible leads when using screw or spring clamps. The solid terminating surface claims improved connection reliability and ruggedness in terminal block applications found in switching cabinets, control units and other equipment with row or poke in clamp connectors. The pins are available both insulated and uninsulated, and in a wide range of wire sizes. TYCO ELECTRONICS CORP., Harrisburg, PA. (800) 522-6752.
