The primary application of the ASBT are for power cable terminations, both underground and above ground at voltages up to 69 kV. The ASBT are ideally suited for making aluminum or copper cable connections to flat bar or equipment pads equipped with 2-hole NEMA spacing. The terminals are manufactured from seamless, high conductivity aluminum designed for heavy-duty utility applications. The bore of the connectors body have an unique grooved surface to enhance electrical contact and minimize resistance at the interface between the terminal and the conductor. The cable entry area is chamfered inside to provide easy cable insertion. The terminals design incorporate shear bolt heads, which ensures that the correct torque is applied to each bolt and consequently the optimal contact force is generated to minimize connection resistance. The primary tool required to install the connector is a standard ratchet wrench with the appropriate hexagonal sockets. A holding tool is recommended to avoid core bending of conductors and can be ordered (#IT-1000-019).
