October 26, 2011 – Burndy, a manufacturer and provider of electrical connector solutions and application tooling, unveiled its hand-operated MRC840AL, which is designed specifically for use on aluminum Burndy Hylug (type YA-A) and Hylink (type YS-A) terminals and splices ranging from #8 to 4/0 AWG. The tool features plated, heat-treated steel jaws to reduce buckling and misalignment under heavy loading, and to provide enhanced corrosion resistance. There is also a rotatable, colour-coded die wheel marked with conductor size.
