I was going to put crimp on terminals on the control cable for my rotor to
connect to an 8 terminal terminal block for "quick" disconnect of the eight
wires. After I got home and read the TYCO/AMP box (terminals) it says:
* for use on stranded or solid wire
* "Danger: Not to be used on Aluminum wire - may cause equipment failure
leading to injury or death"
My questions are 2 ...
Is Beldon control cable stranded Aluminum? If so, does that mean I cannot
use the AMP crimp ons on the Beldon cable?
And why are pressure type wire connectors not to be used on Aluminum wire?
I guess that's 3 questions .........
Thanks in advance for any assistance, Bruce K1MY
