In 1989 BURNDY® began shipping an improved pin type connector. A proprietary coating system was developed through intense research efforts which vastly prolongs the life of this type of connection. To help identify the new product, a hex shaped
crimp is now used on the pin interface crimp and overhead color coded end caps are utilized.Aluminum HYPLUG™ with tin-plated copper plug for terminating aluminum or ACSR cable at cutout, transformer and arrestor. Plug may be bent to desired angle for easier insertion. Three die sets accommodate 4 Str.-500 kcmil. Terminals are prefilled with PENETROX™ A-13 joint compound and
sealed with color coded end caps.
