Aluminum Lay-in Lugs for Solar Panel Applications

utility supplies Burndy

Utility supplies: BURNDY, a manufacturer and provider of connector, grounding and tooling solutions to multiple markets, announces new additions to its grounding product line. The aluminum lay-in lugs are most suitable for solar panel applications. The connectors are for use with frames with a maximum thickness of 1/4 in. They may also be used for cable to bus or cable to steel connections where the lay-in feature is necessary.

Manufactured using high strength aluminum alloy, these connectors have the versatility to be used with aluminum and copper conductors. The serrations are provided to establish better contact and cut through oxidation, ensuring low contact resistance and high conductivity. The anodization on aluminum rails is nonconductive and electrical current cannot pass through this layer. BURNDY’s cup point screw penetrates this layer, allowing current to flow into the aluminum connector and consequently current flows to the conductor.

The connectors are UL467 and UL2703 Listed. The connectors accommodate copper cables from 14 AWG to 6 AWG and aluminum cables from 12 AWG to 6 AWG. The connectors are also available in bulk.
