Ampact Fired Wedge Connectors.
Ampact Fired Wedge Connector prevents connector degradation and lowers resistance thereby reducing I2
R losses. The tap may also be used to connect multiple conductor combinations in the electrical network. Used to connect solid and stranded aluminium, aluminium alloy, and stranded aluminium composite conductors including AAC, AAAC, ACSR, ACAR, AW, ACSR/AW and ACSS. It is also used in non-corrosive environments to connect copper conductors. Features:
- A locking tab prevents wedge from loosening once it has been driven into position. Every connection may be visually inspected by checking wedge movement and locking tab
- Lightweight, power-actuated tools require minimum operator effort
- “C” and wedge are factory coated with an inhibitor containing abrasive particles to help clean the contact surfaces during installation
