Crimp Contacts

Crimp contacts are one of the key component parts of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Contacts are electrical components which are made from a conductive material. When to contacts come together they can pass an electrical current between them.


Contacts are often used to complete the circuit on a PCB by conducting electrical current from the connector to the PCB. The connector will often be contained within a PCB connector housing, especially where multiple connectors are used.


How are crimp contacts used?

Crimp contacts are used to create circuits in general PCB applications. They are attached to a wire or cable to create these connections. Crimp contacts are terminated using a crimp method. A crimp is essentially where the wire and connector are attached by compression and reshaping. The standard crimp method, when performed well, provides a secure and reliable connection. Where crimping is involved, it is important to use a quality crimp tool to create a secure connection. 


Crimp contacts connect to wires which are compatible in size. Wires are measured using AWG standard or in mm2.


Where are crimp contacts used?

Crimp contacts provide a platform for PCB connectors to attach to. They are commonly used to make PCB sockets and for general PCB prototyping. The connector is mounted on to the printed circuit board, using the contact as an electrical connection. You will find these contacts in many electronics applications, such as household appliances, telecommunications, medical and automotive.


What are crimp contacts made from?

Crimp contacts can be made from and plated with a range of different materials, like bronze, copper or gold. The different material type will vary with conductivity and quality of connection. Contacts are often have a plating of silver or gold for a reliable connection.


What is contact gender?

Crimp contacts come in different genders. Female connector contacts act like a socket, while male connector contacts act like a pin or plug.
