INTRODUCTION
BURNDY
®
electrical connectors are
designed to be installed with a minimum of
effort, to run cooler than the conductors
being joined and to provide optimum per-
formance under all operating conditions.
To achieve this type of performance, exten-
sive research and development time is spent
by BURNDY
®
engineers and scientists to
improve manufacturing techniques, materials
and designs. As these improvements become
available, they are incorporated into both
existing and new product lines. This continu-
ous program of product innovation and
improvement insures that, as new and more
critical applications evolve, high quality con-
nectors from BURNDY
®
will be available to
meet the need.
Flat pad connectors used to join cable or
tubing terminals to equipment studs.
A variety of bus supports are also available
for tube or cable. Some can be adjusted for
either a rigid or slide-fit by rotating the
clamping cap 180°.
Expansion connectors are used to absorb
the stress imposed on the bus by settling
ground, thermal expansion and shocks, as in
circuit breaker operations. The flexible ele-
ments are flat-tinned, copper braid, with suf-
ficient cross sectional area to carry the rated
current of the conductors being joined.
N-Line connectors are two-piece copper
alloy castings assembled with DURIUM™
(silicon bronze) hex bolts, nuts and washers.
They are available for connecting tube or
cable.
The Variline incorporates a modified V-bolt as
the clamping element for heavy-duty appli-
cations. This line is particularly suited for use
with flexible and extra flexible cables.
