BURNDY® compression connectors are designed for reliable and controllable electrical connections. The complete installation is fully inspectable. They are high conductivity copper and operate cooler than the wire on which they are installed. The connectors withstand a wide range of electrical and environmental conditions, including current surges, temperatures, corrosion and vibrations, for a wide variety of applications. These features mean a consistently high quality connection at a low installed cost. Aluminum compression connectors are manufactured from high conductivity, high purity wrought aluminum. They are designed with sufficient mass and are electro-tin plated to minimize corrosion due to galvanic action between dissimilar metals. The connector barrels are pre-filled with PENETROX®, BURNDY® oxide inhibiting compound.
