Connecting wires to each other in buildings need their own parts and accessories, which must have the right characteristics for power transmission, so that they do not lose their strength and durability over time and can pass the current well. give
Self-retaining cable fittings
These features are definitely not available from adhesive tapes that are common in the electrical industry. Failure to pay attention to safety points in connecting electrical wires is dangerous and causes electric shock and fire. The use of self-retaining cable fittings can prevent these types of risks without heating up.
Self-supporting cable fittings are many products, of which connectors are one of its types. Connectors are made and supplied in various shapes and materials, which are used according to the needs of the consumer. Sometimes it is necessary to connect two wires and sometimes it is necessary to branch one or more secondary wires from the main wire. The use of terminals helps us to establish electric current between two or more wires with high safety.
In the electrical industry, the use of self-supporting cable fittings requires the use of connectors in cable insulation (IPC), which are known as branching clamps. This connector is used for all types of branching from self-maintaining cable, including subscriber branching, street lighting branching, connecting self-maintaining cable to self-maintaining cable, connecting self-maintaining cable to aerial bare copper wire network and connecting to ground network.
The connector is generally used to connect various combinations of main and branch conductors made of copper and aluminum. It has the ability to be installed on hot lines without removing the insulation of the conductors.
Electrical branch connector function
The power branch connector has a common screw that is insulated from the network, which allows tightening both the main and secondary connections at the same time. The depth of the clamp teeth in the conductor is very important in terms of the impact on the resistance value of the connection.
All standard electrical branch connectors have a self-tapping screw under proper torque. If the clamp does not have the above-mentioned screw, this screw must be closed with a torque wrench.
Types of power branch connectors:
- Subscriber branch connector with header nut
- 1 to 4 branch extension connector
- Two-pin aluminum connector
Features of the power branch connector:
- The upper screw of the clamp is non-electrical in any condition and it is possible to tighten it without electrifying the screw head.
- have antioxidant grease and resistant to melting between the teeth.
- The tightening torque of the connector should be known, or they should have a set screw with the specified torque.
