MAHAVITARAN DISTRIBUTION- SPECIAL PROJECT CELLTECHNICAL SPECIFICATION - 31

The connector shall confirm to ANSI C 119.4. It consist of a spring ' C ' member and a Wedge, both made from a special tin plated copper alloy in a configuration that creates spring action. The ' C ' member and a Wedge shall be factory coated with a conductive inhibitor containing abrasive particles to help in cleaning the contact surface during installation. Theconnector shall be useful for the conductor size of ANT, GNAT, WEASEL and service connection cables of sizes 2.5, 4.0 and 10 sq.mm. The connector shall be of Universal Distribution Connector (UDC) type. They shall connect conductors of Aluminium, Copper, Steel and their alloys regardless of the combination (i.e. Al to Al, Al to Cu, Cu to Cu). These connectors shall provide a noncorrosive action thatis protected against temperature variation and overloading. Also, connector shall provide a reliable electrical as well as mechanical connection for solid. Stranded or compressed conductor combinations including AAC. AAAC and ACSR. A good connection shall be easily verified by visual inspection. All the connectors shall be removed without damaging the conductor and the conductor as well asconnector can be used again. 4.2 " C " MEMBER: The C member shall be formed from a special Copper alloy so that the grain (extrusion direction) runs perpendicular to the conductor (e.g. from C-groove end to C-groove end). This orientation of grain direction provides for lower rates of stress relaxation in the metal and will maintain the level of contact pressure at or near the value at initialinstallation for the life of connection. Susceptibility to stress corrosion cracking will also improve. The material used shall be specially designed with close tolerances on the chemical composition to ensure consistency of the C- member production regarding dimensions and mechanical properties. 4.3 WEDGE: The dimensions for the wedges are manufactured to close tolerances to ensure repeatability and...
