What are the dimensions of the lead attachment area for standard heaters?

The size of the non-heated lead attachment area varies based on the leadwire size, insulation material, lead exit location and heater dimensions. For a polyimide (e.g. Kapton™) insulated heater these range from 0.25 x 0.30” (6.35 x 7.62mm) to 0.5 x 0.8” (12.7 x 20.32mm) for sizes AWG 30 to AWG20. Describe your space limitations when specifying a custom design. Lead can be attached to a non-heated tab outside the body of the heater.
