What are Disconnects?

Disconnects are a type of electrical terminal intended to be disconnected and reconnected multiple times. This makes them ideal for use where field serviceability and longevity are potential issues. Disconnect terminals are a great way to protect electrical connections that have to survive in tough environments. Whether dealing with mechanical abuse, wire pull-out, or abrasion, they are a solid choice for long term conductivity. Disconnects are sometimes known as quick connects or slip-on connectors. Now that you have a basic idea of what they are, lets look a little more at where they get their name.
