Utility equipment: Connector Manufacturing Co. (CMC) introduces the ROTO-LUG connector product line. ROTO-LUG connectors have the built-in Turning Point rotational feature that allows up to 219 degrees positioning in all directions: front-and-back and side-to-side. The built-in rotation feature significantly reduces installation time and the amount of conductor needed because it allows the installer to bring the connector to the conductor by quickly adjusting the angle of the connector to accommodate the conductor.
ROTO- LUG connectors are range taking and accommodate both copper and aluminum conductors. In addition, the ROTO-LUG connectors are cULus Listed for wire terminations.
Over the years, wire has become larger in size while at the same time switchgear boxes and breaker boxes have become smaller and more compact. Electrical contractors must bend large diameter wire to install it in the fixed lugs available today. Often, bending is accomplished by heating and machine-bending the wire beyond limits allowed by codes and safety for lack of an alternative.
