Insulation piercing connector
Insulation Piercing Connectors (IPCs) provide a fast, convenient and reliable method of connecting overhead low voltage mains to services or other mains. IPCs provide a fully sealed, waterproof connection.
Insulation piercing connector is mainly composed of reinforced shell, piercing blade, gasket, waterproof silicone grease, high-strength bolt, torque nut and cable terminal cap cover. When the cable needs to be branched or connected, the cable branch line terminal is inserted into the waterproof terminal After determining the branch position of the main line, use a socket wrench to twist the torque nut on the piercing connector. During the process, the contact blade will pierce the cable insulation layer and contact the conductor. The gasket presses around the pierced position of the cable, inside the shell Silicone grease overflows. When the torque reaches the set value, the nut torque mechanism falls off, the main line and the branch line are connected, and the waterproof performance and electrical effect meet the parameters required by the standard.
Advantage of Insulation piercing connector
1.It has the characteristics of easy installation, low cost, safe and reliable maintenance-free.
2.The cable branch can be made without cutting off the main cable or stripping the insulation layer of the cable.
3.The connector is completely insulated, and it can be operated on live line. It can be branched at any position of the cable.
4.There is no need to use terminal boxes and junction boxes. And the joint is resistant to distortion, shockproof, waterproof, corrosion-proof and aging.
5.The use of insulation piercing clamps for cable branching has obvious comprehensive benefits and is more cost-effective than traditional connection methods.
