New Galvan Insulation Piercing Connectors Are Designed for Faster Installation


HARRISBURG, N.C. -- Galvan Industries is now supplying an upgraded line of Insulation Piercing Connectors that can be quickly applied as a splice or tap by a single installer.

Replacing Galvan's earlier NHT connector line, new IPC Series connectors are totally insulated and ideal for copper-to-copper, copper-to-aluminum and aluminum-to-aluminum applications. These UL 486B listed, ANSI C119.4 compliant connectors feature double shear-head bolts to assure flawless connections every time.

Installed without special tooling, the connectors eliminate time spent on wire stripping, taping and covers. Rated: 600 volts, 90ūC. Properly installed, the connectors deliver watertight, corrosion-free performance. They are not designed for submersible installations. Galvan supplies six models of tank transformer connectors. These high-conductivity bronze connectors handle vertical and horizontal-directed cable and fit all standard EEI-NRMA transformers. Type GC transformer ground connectors are also available.

IPC Series connectors handle a large wire range - from #14 AWG to 750 MCM. The new conductors are not recommended for use with extra-flexible cables.

Galvan Industries is a major manufacturer of grounding components including connectors, clamps and ground rods. Galvan manufactures copper-bonded, hot-dip galvanized and stainless steel ground rods and related electrical products for utility and construction applications
