TE Connectivity’s (TE) new line of Copper ShearBolt connectors are range taking, mechanical connectors that will accommodate a wide range of copper cables from #2 AWG compact stranded to 1000 kcmil concentric stranded.
The primary application is for underground splices up to 35 kV. The tool required is a standard ratchet wrench with a hexagonal socket. The design incorporates shear head bolts, which ensures that the correct torque is applied to each bolt. Also, this method of installation reduces worker strain
compared to a manual compression tool requiring significant force to operate.
A holding tool is recommended to avoid core bending of conductors and can be ordered from TE (#IT-1000-019). TE’s cordless impact wrench (#T25446-000) can also be used to install the connector. This convenient and quick tool has been tested and qualified to install ShearBolt connectors.
The connector is supplied with two copper inserts assembled into the connector body to center small conductor sizes. For larger sizes, inserts are not required and are easily removed with a standard screwdriver. Please see the installation table on back for details.
