Relay Sockets

Relay sockets differ in terms of terminal type, the number of pins per blade, and socket receptacle style. Terminals are devices that terminate a conductor. They attach to posts, studs or other conductors in order to establish an electrical connection.Typically, these connections are made using screws or by soldering wires or pins. Crimp terminals use the physical compression (deformation) of a contact wire barrel around a conductor to make an electrical and mechanical connection to the conductor. Quick connect/ disconnect terminals do not require the use of tools. Most relay sockets use 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 14, or 16 pins per blade. There are many different socket receptacle styles.
