Connectors for Aluminum
For systems where aluminum is used, con-
nectors especially designed for aluminum
conductors are available in bolted and com-
pression types: HYCRAB™, HYPLUG™,
HYREDUCER™, and HYSOCKET. Aluminum
conductors can be connected to standard
MOLE™ connectors by using HYPLUG™
adapters.
Multiple Outlet Connectors
The increasing use in modern electrical dis-
tribution systems of junction points where
several relatively large cables must be con-
nected, has brought about the development
of BURNDY
®
MOLE™ line equipment to
speed up and simplify the making of such
connections. The modern tendency toward
network systems not only in underground
utility practice but also in industrial wiring,
has greatly increased the number of multi-
connection joints.
The BURNDY
®
MOLE™ and HYCRAB™
connectors are insulated bus bars with mul-
tiple connector outlets for service cables,
secondary mains, or equipment leads. In the
MOLE™, clamping action secures conduc-
tors to the connector; in the HYCRAB™,
connections are made by indenting with a
compression tool. Both lines of insulated
connectors offer the following basic advan-
tages:
1. Ease and Economy of Installations:
The
ease and reduction of time required to
make and insulate dependable multi-con-
nections greatly reduces the cost of
installation. The compact design makes
maximum use of space and provides for
simplified racking.
2. Versatility for System Modification:
The
MOLE™ and HYCRAB™ are designed to
accommodate the standard secondary
main and service cables, and permit easy
modification or later additions. The
numerous available connector configura-
tions permit a wide variety of arrange-
ments of cables and equipment connec-
tions. The 600 volt rating of the MOLE™
and HYCRAB™ insulation provides for
efficient operation at all standard utiliza-
tion voltages.
3. Efficient, Dependable Performance:
The
MOLE™ and HYCRAB™ connectors
assure permanent, high conductivity con-
nections, good moisture seal, and insula-
tion that resists the severest condition
encountered in underground installations.
MOLE™ and HYCRAB™ Insulation
The location in vaults and manholes often
exposes these connectors to immersion in
water, chemical, and other contaminants, as
well as to heat from overload or fault cur-
rents. The MOLE™ and HYCRAB™ insula-
tions provide electrical, mechanical, and
thermal properties essential to assure the
service continuity of underground distribu-
tion systems.
Recognizing the importance of proper
connector insulation, BURNDY
®
established
performance specifications exceeding those
of 600 volt cable insulation.
