Our XCX-XDX Bimetallic Compression Cable Lugs can be used either with low or medium voltages terminations. They are designed using crimping technology. They can be easily installed with a regular crimping tool, by a trained installer, to make sure the proper torque is applied to ensure a reliable and efficient connection. They are designed to provide an age-resistant current connection from the aluminum barrel to the solid copper palm. A single connector size for a given conductor cross-section - independent of its compression ratio - is needed.
