Direct Burial Connectors
Part of the Unitap family, BIBS-DB dual-rated connectors are designed to join multiple conductors in direct burial applications. Insulated with EPDM rubber and supplied with an oxide inhibitor pre-installed, the products are constructed from aluminum alloy and can be used for any application requiring a water-tight or below-grade application. The connectors are rated 600V and 90°C, and are UL-listed and CSA-certified. In addition, they meet UL 4896D, ANSI C119.1, and ANSI C119.4 standards.
Screw-Clamp Terminal Blocks
The UT Series of screw-clamp terminal blocks now comes in a three-level version. The UT 2.5-3L accepts solid, stranded, or ferruled wires from 26 AWG to 12 AWG. Vertical bridges electrically connect all three levels to one another. In addition, each terminal point features a large labeling space for easy identification. The terminal blocks offer current ratings of 300V at 20A or 600V at 5A under UL file # E60425.
Intended for wind energy applications, ALNN-1000-12-134 aluminum compression connectors are designed for 1000kcmil conductor. Made of 1350 aluminum alloy, the connectors feature electro-tin plating and a standard NEMA bolt-hole pattern with ½-in. × 1¾-in. spacing. Additional features include 2-hole mounting tang and a chamfered barrel. The products are UL-listed, CSA-certified, and suitable for use with copper or aluminum conductor.
Push-button Terminal Blocks
The 2060 Series of 2-pole SMD terminal blocks provides push-button termination/re-termination for solid/stranded conductors 24 AWG to 18 AWG. With UL/cUL ratings of 9A/250V, the terminal blocks offer an alternative to soldering leads for PCB-based LED products. According to the company, the product’s push button enables correction of wiring errors during assembly of LED devices. Measuring 4.5 mm tall, the devices feature a contoured, light gray housing that minimizes onboard LED shadowing.
