Galvan 4ABV and 6ABV panelboard connectors
By Stephanie Lai
July 11, 2013 – Galvan Industries’ line of electrical panelboard connectors now includes four- and six-barrel models that accommodate conductor ranges of 500 kcmil to 4 AWG, 500 kcmil to 2 AWG, 600 kcmil to 2 AWG and 750 kcmil to 1/0 AWG. Galvan’s 4ABV and 6ABV are dual-rated aluminum solderless connectors which provide a rare combination of conductor size and connection capacity, says the company. Designed for use with aluminum or copper conductors, they are manufactured from high-strength 6061-T6 aluminum alloy and boast maximum durability and conductivity. They feature a straight mounting pad with two fastener holes to help reduce the rotation allowed by single-hole mounted lugs. The hex-head conductor screws are designed to extend beyond the barrel sides of the connector to allow a better, more secure compression of the conductor.
