Overview

TE Connectivity’s (TE) mechanical lugs products consist of a tin-plated body, shear-head bolts and inserts for small conductor sizes. Made of special aluminium alloy, these contact bolts are double shear head bolts with hexagon heads. The bolts are treated with a highly lubricating agent. Contact bolts are irremovable once their heads have been sheared off. The lug body is made of a high-tensile, tin-plated aluminium alloy. The internal surface of the conductor holes are grooved.

Lugs are suitable for outdoor and indoor applications and are available with different palm hole sizes. The bolted fitting featured herein is developed specifically for use in medium voltage cable accessories up to 42 kV. They may also be used in the 1 kV range.

Before using mechanical lugs in cable accessories, confirm that they are suitable for the given application and if necessary consult our experts.
