The Insulation Piercing Connector (IPC) is used for connecting an insulated conductor with a branch conductor without removing the insulation of the conductor. The application is mainly for insulated Aerial bunched cables.
Each connector is in two halves, interconnected with a bolt having a shear head top. The shear head of the bolt shears off at predetermined torque. IPC of this design is when both the main tap conductors are tightened simultaneous whereby the teeth of the contact plates penetrate the insulation and establish a contact.
Hot dipped galvanized bolts
Self Insulated and potential free
Torque controlled shear head for best contact without damaging the conductor for low resistance
Moulded from high quality mechanical, climatic and UV resistant glass reinforced polyamide.
Its elasticity creates spring like action and provided continuous pressure on the contact teeth.
Prevents oxidation by filling voids where contamination could ingress to provide long term moisture, cyclic and shock protection.
Made from tin plated hardened copper alloy, penetrate through most types of conductor
Insulation. They provide excellent electrical conductivity, are anti-corrosive and facilitate use on both aluminium and copper conductor.
Made from high quality elastomer to prevent ingress of corrosion agents
Provides protection against flashover from exposed end of tap conductor and can be mounted on either side of connector.
Live line connection, no load on the tap conductor. Ip68 and to withstand 6kv for 1 minute under 300mm of water. Easy to install and safe to use.
