VERSITAIL™
Structural Steel Grounding
Connector
INSTALLATION
1. Weld the VERSITAIL™ to the steel
member.
2. Select the proper connector for your
specific application.
a
. FOR COMPRESSION CONNECTORS
Select the proper BURNDY
®
“YGHP,”
connector. Clean the conductor, join the
VERSITAIL™ and the grounding con-
ductor together with the recommended
tool and die set, then crimp the connec-
tor over the knurled area of the VERSI-
TAIL™.
b
. FOR MECHANICAL CONNECTORS
Select the properly sized BURNDY
®
connector. Clean the conductor, then
apply PENETROX™ E oxide inhibiting
compound on the contact area for
increased effectiveness and service life.
Put the connector over the knurled area
of the VERSITAIL™ and apply the rec-
ommended torque value for correct
installation.
SPECIFICATIONS
• Low Carbon, hot rolled steel.
• Pure copper plated finish.
FEATURES
• The VERSITAIL™ may be welded to steel
surfaces quickly and easily with normal
construction equipment.
• The VERSITAIL™ eliminates costly disk
grinding and the need to expose virgin
metal. The welding process burns through
the oxidation and “scale” to establish
excellent electrical grounding continuity.
• The VERSITAIL™ may be installed by the
welder in the field or at the steel fabricator
based on customer preference.
• The VERSITAIL™ pure copper coating over
low carbon, hot rolled steel is compatible
with standard welding processes.
No toxic gasses are generated.
• The VERSITAIL™ knurled surface is
copper plated and specifically designed to
ensure excellent mechanical gripping and
electrical integrity for BURNDY
®
compres-
sion and mechanical connectors in all
grounding applications.
• The VERSITAIL™ may be installed during
adverse weather conditions thus eliminat-
ing costly construction delays.
BENEFITS
Low installation cost.
• No drilling . . . No cleaning . . .
• No special preparation
* This is the equivalent rating for continuous service. Larger
conductors may be connected using both compression and
bolted connectors in potential ground fault applications.
