Burndy’s clear insulated Unitap connectors don’t need wire ferrules
By Renée Francoeur
September 13, 2016 – Burndy has expanded its Unitap insulated multi-tap connector family.
In addition to a full line of UV-rated black, clear, direct burial and submersible connectors, the product line now contains a full offering of connectors that are UL-listed to the UL Wire Connector Standard UL486A-486B and CSA certified for use with flexible (fine stranded) conductor.
A “disc-pad” screw has been incorporated to prevent damage to the fine strands as the conductor is compressed during installation. This eliminates the need for wire ferrules, Burndy says. These connectors also boast colour-coordinated screw port caps that show the installation torque information and conductor port caps that display the wire range and classes of conductor accepted.
