wire-wrapped connection


connection consisting of a helix of continuous, solid, non-insulated wire tightly wrapped around the terminal post to produce a mechanically and electrically stable connection.


  • NOTE 1 The number of turns required will depend on the gauge of wire used.
  • NOTE 2 All completed wraps have an additional minimum of 3/4 turn of the insulated wire that is in contact with at least three corners of the terminal post (see Figure 1-1).
