How do I choose cable lugs?

How do I choose cable lugs?

Choosing the right cable lug also depends on the conductor class to be processed. As an example, the following cable lug types are available for cables according to DIN EN 60228: Class 1, 2, 5 and 6 conductors: compression cable lugs according to DIN 46235. Class 2 conductors: standard type tubular cable lugs.

Are cable lugs standard?

Can we use copper lugs for Aluminium cable?

copper lug is used then contact between aluminium cable and barrel of copper terminal lug is of dissimilar metal and hence the galvanic action takes place. In order to prevent dissimilar contact and to avoid galvanic action it is always advisable to use copper aluminium Bi-Metal lugs.

Why do we use cable lugs?

» Cable lugs are devices used for connecting cables to electrical appliances, other cables, surfaces, or mechanisms. The clamps that connect wires to an automotive battery are a common example of a cable lug, as are the ends of battery jumper cables.

What is a cable terminator?

Terminators are simple devices that electrically terminate RF coaxial ports both inside and outside of the home. The use of terminators can help protect nearby broadband networks from noise, avoid corrosion of ports and enable technicians to easily decipher the availability of a port.
