May 16, 2008 -- FCI-Burndy Products has introduced its Break-Away HYLUG line of copper and aluminum compression terminals, types YBA, YBA-FX and YBA-A.
The terminals' break-away feature is designed to enable flexibility in the field by allowing installers to easily convert a two-hole terminal to a one-hole terminal to suit the application.
The UL- and CSA- listed terminals are specified as 90 degree C, 600 volts to 35kV. With a slotted second stud, the terminals can conform to various bus bar dimensions. For additional flexibility, the parts' "narrow tongue" design allows the terminal to fit into tight spaces.
The terminals accommodate a range of conductor combinations, including AWG, compact, DLO, flex and metric.
