MANCHESTER, N.H., July 11, 2005 — FCI-BURNDY® Products, a leading connector manufacturer and provider of OEM solutions to the industrial, energy, and automotive industries, will showcase the QIKSLEEVEà¢â€ž- Aerial Wedge Splice and the BURNDY WEJTAPà¢â€ž- system in booth number 849 at the IEEE PES Transmission & Distribution Conference, October 10-12 in New Orleans, LA.
The new QIKSLEEVE Aerial Wedge Splice is perfect for slack span and tension applications, and features significant design, energy, and labor saving improvements over conventional tubular connector methods. The WEJTAP, a one-piece assembly that consists of a head and power unit, provides simple and fast tap removal with minimum conductor damage.
QIKSLEEVE has a range taking open design feature that replaces several conventional designs. The open design allows visual inspection and ease of installation. The anti-reverse clip assists in the initial installation of the connector and visual indicator also ensures verification of installation. QIKSLEEVE’s all aluminum open style does not trap water and eliminates corrosion issues due to dissimilar metals.
WEJTAP connectors expand and contract for long life. Connectors use a power-driven, aluminum alloy wedge to lock the tap cables into a self-adjusting “C” shaped spring body, maintaining consistent pressure throughout the life of the connection and ensuring reliability during severe electrical and climatic conditions. The wedge’s wiping action, in combination with factory installed PENATROXà¢â€ž- PENA 13, an oxide-inhibiting compound, provides superior contact integrity.
