US Patent no. 10630005 April 21, 2020 www.ihiconnectors.com/patent.html

1. ADVANTAGES and ECONOMIC PAYBACK:
No pre-crimping tools needed since the screw type connector is the crimp tool.
Standard generic ferrules may be used which are very low cost.
Ferrules do not need to be Agency rated for any particular OEM crimp tools.
Perfect for controlling fine stranded flex wire.
Able to pass UL486A-B C22.2 No. 65 testing connector rating standard at 90C ratings (see list of parts below).
Enables larger wire sizes to fit into any substantially round hole connector compared with pre-crimped ferrules, since pre-crimped ferrules are like “a square peg in a round hole”.
Manages fine stranded wire by controlling the strands and strand breakage.
Makes insertion of a fine stranded wire into a wire hole easier with flared entrance.
Connector maintains all non-ferrule ratings for direct wire use at any time since choice to use the ferrule occurs at the user site.
Factory or field installation applicable.
Ferrules used only when required for maximum flexibility in wiring options.
On demand method may be used only when needed with no OEM custom parts required.
Agency ratings available using this patented method with UL and CSA.
2. SCOPE SUMMARY:
Any wire connector, which uses a screw to bind the wire(s) or conductor(s), where it is desired to use a wire size appropriate ferrule, with no pre-crimping of the ferrule, but performing “self-crimping” of the wire or conductor by clamping them at the same time, utilizing the same screw as the wire or conductor would otherwise be clamped.
4. CONDUCTOR AND FERRULE RANGE:
What, in brief, is covered by the patent? (guide only – see the patent for the only legal wording)
Conductor, and ferrule sizes from 0.25mm2 to 400mm2 for single port and dual /multi-port connectors.
