Re: Wiring Regulations?

I use these connectors all the time now. Mostly just the crimp & seal but have also used the crimp, solder & seal. The crimp, solder & seal type have greater pull test strength than crimp & seal and in fact, the solder & seal (no crimp) also has greater strength than crimp & seal alone. Soldering is going to provide greater conductivity. The difference in conductivity may very well be negligible but it is a fact nonetheless. The crimp versus crimp & solder debate will go on but those of us with years and years of experience and trial and error know the pro's and con's of each and how to deal with and avoid the con's.

No, I don't, I rely on my own experience, knowledge, testing, trial and error. Not on advertisements, not on BS from Internet forum posters who think they know it all. Not refering to you or anyone else specifically.

I would have figured that so I was surprised you posted the link.

Yes; well perhaps not boat wire but certainly MS manufactured tinned wire.

The previous post was referring to solder tinned wire.

The devil is always in the detail

There are a variety of "tinning" available for various types of wire ranging from solder, tin, silver and others.

Use uninsulated crimp terminals. A proper crimp tool and cover the joint with adhesive lined shrink wrap. It will outlast you.

I suspect there is more to this question than meets the eye because NASA wouldn't be using boat wire. However:

There is a difference between factory tinned wire and stranded wire that has been tinned by someone using solder (which turns this portion of the wire into "solid" wire).

Factory tinned wire has tin applied to each strand before the strands are wound together. It is still stranded at this point and will compress properly in the terminal.
