- Features & Benefits
BURNDY® compression connectors are designed for reliable and controllable electrical connections. The complete installation is fully inspectable. They are high conductivity copper and operate cooler than the wire on which they are installed. The connectors withstand a wide range of electrical and environmental conditions, including current surges, temperatures, corrosion and vibrations, for a wide variety of applications. These features mean a consistently high quality connection at a low installed cost.
Copper compression connectors are manufactured from high-conductivity electrolytic copper. The connectors are normally tin-plated, lead plated, or plated with proprietary BURNDY brite finish to provide durable long-lasting corrosion resistance.
The connector design has been matched to the cable size to provide the necessary physical strength requirements for reliable electrical performance.

• Inspection window allows for visual verification that the wire has been fully
inserted prior to crimping the lug
• Barrel is designed with a “belled” end opening at the wire entry, to ensure
smooth insertion of highly flexible stranded wire, preventing possible damaging
of the wire strands during insertion
• Short/Standard length barrel is recommended for installations with limited space
• 45º and 90º angular lugs are available; please contact Customer Service
• Electro-tin plated unless otherwise specified to reduce galvanic corrosion
(bimetallic) and resist corrosive elements
• Connectors are clearly marked with stamping and barrel color coding
• Connectors accommodating wire sizes #10 – 4/0 AWG accommodate both Flex
and Code Wire. See Tables on each page for specific details
• Tables in this section identify flex wire as the nominal flex wire size followed by
the wire classes and DLO wire size and stranding. For Class Wire Strand counts,
see the table at the beginning of this section
