ETCO is a leading supplier to the automotive industry. From terminals to boots to insulators, ETCO has an extensive product line of the highest quality products that will keep your factory and your automotive brands humming. ETCO manufactures spark plug boots, battery cable terminals, heavy duty ring terminals, and stamped top post battery terminals to be used as a replacement for cast lead type top post terminals. ETCO also makes the equipment to terminate these products to cable.
Angle Boot Insulators are ideal for automotive manufacturing applications, where space is an issue and wiring must be protected from high temperatures. A majority of these boots come in 90 degree configurations, but other degree configurations are available as well. The boots can be attached to wire using ETCO’s Bender Booter.
Similar in composition to the angled boot insulators, these Straight Boot Insulators come in multiple colors for color coded manufacturing applications. These insulators are primarily used in automotive applications and can be custom manufactured to fit specific dimensions upon request.
ETCO Battery Post Terminals include universal post- and ring styles that conform to SAE specifications and are supplied as continuous strip on reels for termination by automatic equipment. Featuring crimp ears up, these heavy-duty terminals are available in sizes to match 6 thru 2 Ga wire to assure a high-integrity crimp and provide extremely high pull-off values. Made from brass and tin-plated brass for durability and corrosion resistance, ETCO Battery Post Terminals can accept one or more wires. The universal post style fits conventional automotive batteries and the ring styles are offered in straight and right angle types and various hole sizes to fit the new smaller battery posts. Custom designs can also be provided.
Available in custom and standard applications, the ETCO Core Crimp Terminal consists of industry-leading design and allows for efficient manufacturing. Depending on automotive manufacturing application needed, the ETCO Core Crimp Terminal can be ordered for high volume output.
Distributor Terminals from ETCO come in a series of configurations and can be mated with cables that range in length from 7 to 8mm. Most terminals also have matching rubber boot components.
