type has a cup in which the wire is held by solder
permanently. The solderless type is connected to the
wire by special tools. These tools deform the barrel of
the terminal and exert pressure on the wire to form a
strong mechanical bond and electrical connection.
Solderless type terminals are gradually replacing
solder type terminals in military equipment.
Wire passing through holes in the metal members
of the frame or body should be protected by rubber
grommets. If rubber grommets are not available, use a
piece of rubber hose the size of the hole to protect the
wiring from chafing or cutting on sharp edges.
