Rittal Corporation has introduced a new generation of maintenance-free conductor connection clamps using push-in technology. For many system integrators, wires and cables connected with screw clamps or fixed conductor connection clamps can be time-consuming to install. Rittal’s new push-in clamps offer quick and easy connection to many different types of conductors. The push-in conductor connection clamp reduces potential defects, like incorrect compression/torques or clamp loosening. Now panel builders and switchgear manufacturers can connect cables, wires, and protective and neutral conductors directly to busbars. In addition, short-circuit resistant voltage taps can be added onto the main busbar system, or installers can string distributors or blocks with a large number of connector clamps to pair with outgoing cables. The Rittal push-in conductor connection clamps are available in two clamping ranges, 0.5 – 4 mm2 and 1.5 – 16 mm2, and for copper busbars 5 and 10 mm thick in each clamping range. UL and IEC certified for use worldwide, and approved for use in both offshore and maritime applications, the Rittal push-in conductor connection clamp is available now.
