If I am going to screw eight wires into daughter relay board's terminal block, is there a benefit or advantage to tinning the copper end before?
I'm currently working on a visual studio voice recognition program. I've figured out how to open websites like google and youtube but i haven't figured out how to close them. Can someone help with this? -Thanx
Also for solid wire I don't think tinning is needed. Think about it: have you ever seen electrical wiring in a house where the 2.5mm\$^2\$ or 4mm\$^2\$ wires were tinned before fixing into the wiring cabinet? Yet these connections are used in all kinds of environments and for tens of years.
Alternatively, terminals can also be arranged as a terminal strip or terminal block, with several screws along (typically) two long strips. This creates a bus bar for power distribution, and so may also include a master input connector, usually binding posts or banana connectors.
Adding the ferrule will increase the size of the wire end, possibly too large to fit in the screw terminal. (This should not be a problem if one of the options you have considered is doubling over the wire.)

The environment that the units are to be installed is not near the coast and is not normally damp/wet. Rather dry and hot.
Actually, whenever I try to do things dynamically which I can do on IDE, I got some sort of problems.
The screw or clamp both makes contact with the conductor and also clamps the insulation rather than just the conductor. I'll add a diagram if this does not get run out of town on a rail.
Basic electrician termination training, this. At least it was when I did it about 30 years ago :)
A similar arrangement is common with paired screw terminals, where metal tubes are loosely encased in an insulating block with a set screw at each end of each tube to hold and thus connect a conductor. These are often used to connect light fixtures and are shown at the right.
Any competent regulatory authority will have this requirement as a rule in their system (see below)
However in my own practice, I prefer a thin solder dip or coating so that it wicks under the insulation and a star washer. The solder wicking adds strain relief. The star washer exerts more contact pressure and the solder mitigates loose strands.
While wires may be crimped, they must never be tinned with solder prior to installation in a screw terminal, since the soft metal will cold flow, resulting in a loose connection and possible fire hazard.
It is permissible to tin the tip to maintain the wire shape. The minimum possible amount of copper should be tinned.
It depends on if vibration exists and causes the wire to move how rugged the attachment must be. Normally a 5 to 10 lb. pull test is the criterion for any connection, whether it is twist wire clamped or crimp lug attached with proper two-stage crimp on insulation and conductor.
In addition, the screw mechanism limits the minimum physical size of a terminal, making screw terminals less useful where very many connections are required. It is difficult to automate multiple terminations with screw connections. Vibration or corrosion can cause a screw connection to deteriorate over time.
A screw terminal is a type of electrical connector where a wire is held by the tightening of a screw.
Printed circuit board (PCB) terminal blocks are specially designed with a copper alloy pin of suitable size and length and can be inserted in printed circuit boards to be soldered to allow electrical signals and current to flow to and from PCBs and electrical equipment. Some designs provide features that allow the flow of molten solder to endure a better connection between the circuit traces of the board and the electrical equipment which is meant to be controlled or fed appropriate power.
This seems not to work although I tried in many different ways as well as with many supporting code such as "this.Refresh() or combobox.Refresh()".
Screw terminals are low in cost when compared to other types of connectors, and can be readily designed into products for circuits carrying currents of from a fraction of an ampere up to several hundred amperes at low to moderate frequencies. The terminals easily can be re-used in the field, allowing for the replacement of wires or equipment, generally with standard hand tools. Screw terminals usually avoid the requirement for a specialized mating connector to be applied to the ends of wires.
Careless loose strands can only be avoided by proxy inspection or a better design with crimped terminals and routine pull tests.
A more conventional method is to either add a sleeve which can be clamped to the cable end or run the insulated part of the cable just before the outer ends under a clamp which is screwed down onto the outer.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
I'm trying to install wmp10 through Wine so I can use the digital library accessing programme Overdrive. (Installing wmp10 through PlayOnLinux doesn't enable the DRM that allows Overdrive to work, hence the need to install it through Wine. Also, wmp isn't available through the GUI version of Winetricks that I have.)
Multiple screw terminals can be arranged in the form of a barrier strip (as illustrated at the top right), with a number of short metal strips separated by a raised insulated "barrier" on an insulating "block" - each strip having a pair of screws with each screw connecting to a separate conductor, one at each end of the strip. These are known as connector strips or chocolate blocks ("choc blocks") in the UK.
How to reliably secure stranded wire in terminal block
Wires that are bent, twisted or nicked are weaker and won't nest together as easily in the connector. Before you reconnect wires to an outlet or switch, or rejoin several wires with a connector, cut off the old bare wire ends and strip the insulation to expose clean, straight wire. It takes a few extra seconds but ensures a better connection.
Depending on the design, a flat-blade screwdriver, a cross-blade screwdriver, hex key, Torx key, or other tool may be required to properly tighten the connection for reliable operation.
If you plan on having more than one alternative prefix, I'd recommend keeping a directory of prefixes (e.g., ~/.wine/wineprefix/<nameofprefix>). In your case of only needing one prefix, let's call our alternative wineprefix ".wine-w-wmp":

Strip the wires to the length shown on the stripping gauge (Photo 2). Loosen the terminal screw by turning it counterclockwise to open the clamp. Then hold the wire or wires, one in each hole, while you tighten the screw. Tug on the wires when you're done to make sure they're securely connected.

When properly tightened, the connections are physically and electrically secure because they firmly contact a large section of wire. The terminals are relatively low cost compared with other types of connector, and a screw terminal can easily be integrated into the design of a building wiring device (such as a socket, switch, or lamp holder).
If rugged strain relief is needed to prevent frayed wire breakage, then additional cable plastic clamp strain relief is needed such that the stiffness on strain relief is about <5x stress/strain of the wire for a graduated relief. This can be a moulded jacket as well.
Screw terminals were one of the first types of electrical connectors to be used, with one of the earliest patents found utilizing a screw "terminal" being that awarded to William P. Marr of Toronto, Canada - for an "Electric Wire Connecter" U.S. Patent 1,583,479, Filed March 3 1923, Patented May 4,1926
Apparently I need to create a "clean wineprefix" first, but I don't know how to do that. Running the following code didn't work:
The plastic part of the ferrule guides the strands in, covers any exposed metal, provides some strain relief, and identifies the size of the ferrule. Caution: ferrule makers do not all use the same color scheme!
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
This picture shows several sizes of ferrules, two ferrules crimped on 22-gauge stranded wire, and the crimp tool I used ($21 when I bought it).
