Copper tube crimping lugs for low voltage

For copper conductors

A-M series lugs are manufactured from electrolytic Copper tube with a purity greater than 99.9%. The dimensions of the tube are designed to obtain the most efficient electrical conductivity and mechanical strength to resist vibration and pull out. Cembre lugs are annealed to guarantee optimum ductility which is an absolute necessity for connectors which will have to withstand the severe deformation arising when compressed and any bending of the palm during installation. In applications subject to vibration, lugs still have to provide a reliable connection and annealing plays a vital role in avoiding cracking or breaks between the barrel and palm. The presence of an inspection hole facilitates full insertion of the conductor, whilst the barrel length has been designed to allow easy and accurate positioning of the dies during the crimping operation. Lugs are electrolytically Tin plated to avoid oxidation. A-M series lugs form an important part of Cembre crimping systems for power carrying conductors.

These cable lugs are typically used in low voltage applications up to 1000V.

Trough connectors for low voltage

For copper conductors

L-M range of connectors are designed for jointing low voltage conductors. Made of electrolytic Copper tube with a purity greater than 99.9%, having the same dimension as A-M series lugs: L-M connectors are an-nealed and electrolytically Tin plated. They feature an internal taper at both ends to ease the introduction of the conductor and a central stop to en-sure correct positioning.
