Hot Line

Features:

  • MPS Hot Line Clamps are live line tools compatible for distribution tap connections.
  • Bronze Alloy and Aluminum Alloy castings offer high strength, corrosion resistance, and conductor compatibility.
  • Extended jaw width means excellent conductor contact, reduced joint temperature, minimal conductor cold flow and reduced twisting of the conductor during installation.
  • Spring loaded feature compensates for cold flow and offsets tightening torque vibrations.
  • Forged eyebolts provide corrosion free strength and uniformed expansion under loading.
  • The side positioned tap connection prevents possible corrosion of conductor or clamp on bimetal connections.
  • Successful Current Cycle testing per ANSI C119.4 provides assurances that the MPS hot line clamp will withstand the ampacity of a properly installed connection.
