Rounded Top gives Ideal Buchanan wire connectors faster starts

February 21, 2010 | By Anthony Capkun

Ideal Industries has expanded its Buchanan brand lineup with the B-Twist wire connector, which features a rounded ‘dial-top’ for faster fingertip starts, along with a deeper skirt and a square-wire spring to enhance connection security (especially with over-stripped wires). Low-profile swept wings improve box fill, plus add torque on large wire combinations. These CSA-approved connectors accept wire combinations ranging from #18 to #8 AWG, eliminating the need—says Ideal—to purchase both Red and Yellow connectors. They are available in jars of 500 (BT2-500JR) or barrels of 25,000 (BT2-SK). B-Twist connectors are UL Listed and CSA approved.
