Splicing or connecting wires and cables are the conventional way that most electrical professionals use nowadays, some people that had to make a wiring connection already saw that those are the most common ways to connect wires. Considered fundamental components in any building or equipment, electrical conductors are responsible for leading to electrical energy from one point to another in buildings, industries, homes or cars. The electrical cables allow thedistribution of energy safely and very effectively, and ensures the supply of the electrical load in different situations. Within this scenario, it is often necessary to expand the area of ​​activity of energy by means of an amendment of electrical conductors that guarantee the transmission to other points. 

Materials for splicing electrical conductors

The first step in making asplice in electrical conductors is to have the materials, such as connectors and terminals, electrical tape or high fusion tape, pliers, universal stripper, plus gloves and goggles. With all the tools and personal protective equipment (PPE) in hand, just choose which type of electrical conductor splicing you will carry out.

Today we are going to talk about theT-Tap connectors that have been facilitating and reducing the time of installation and maintenance of an electrical system.

What are T-tap Wire Connectors?

T-tap wire connectors are Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDC). It is unit helps to connect the existing wire with another wire and a crimp without additional connections (you must make a connection with the wire that is already present inside) The advantage is that the branch splice can be done without the need for soldering or insulation with electrical tape.

T-Tap connectors are designed to feed an existing wire and a new clean cut end of another one into it. When the metal portion of the tap splice is pressed down, it cuts into both wires and establishes a connection between both of them. The plastic casing folds over and securely holds the wires, without stripping the insulation jacket, to make a tight and clean connection between them. The connection is completed when the tap casing is closed and crimped tightly.

The T Tap connector is just for you who are tired of the old way of peeling, cutting or soldering wires if you have an unreliable feeling about wire connections in your car etc. A new way to speed up your own projects, More quick, easy and safe to splice, split or tap wires. No more wire insulation peeling, no more twisting or sticking the conductor. Makewiring connections in a fast, clean and reliable way.

How to use T-tap wire connectors?

Isolation displacement connector or IDC; it's relatively easy to use. You may

tighten the connector over the existing wire using standard pliers. The connector penetrates the insulation and makes contact with the inner wire. Also, you can attach the second wire with a crimp to the insulated male pin at the terminal. Pushing it to the protruding end of the T faucet. The best part is that it is not necessary to strip wires; just a simple part of the clip over the wire primary and close it with pliers.

The plastic used in the electrical tap connector is generally made of polypropylene self-extinguishing, safe and ideal for building, industrial and automotive installations.

Especially on cars that are subjected to high temperatures, insulating is not the best option. Not to mention that it is not necessary to strip the wires in a tight junction box.

There are t-tap connectors for 4, 5 6 7 or even 8 taps, for cables concentric or not. The variety of connectors is huge and you don't need a lengthy training to learn how to use the product.
