What is an Insulation Piercing Connector?
An insulation piercing connector is a type of electrical connector that utilises a connection process to pierce or displace the insulation of a wire or cable to make a conductive path with the conductor inside – commonly known as insulation piercing clips, insulation displacement connectors and wire taps.
Ensto insulation piercing connectors are for use with insulated aluminium or copper conductors. The fully insulated bolt provides safe live line working – both main and branch conductor insulations are pierced by single bolt action to create a waterproof connection up to 1000 Volts (1kV). Test voltage 6 kV/50 Hz/1 minimum in water. Connector design enables hot line installation without peeling insulation from the cable conductor – suitable for the connection of low voltage distribution networks.
