The Thomas & Betts Method is Better.
The Thomas & Betts method of installing compression connectors on power cables is designed to provide a high degreeof reliability in electrical wiring.This method allows electrical workers to make installations with little effort andat a considerable savings in time.The benefit,of course,is a high quality connection at a low installed cost.
Step 1
Strip the insulation carefully to avoid nickingor cutting conductors (wire brush if required).Strip the insulation to the properlength so that conductors can be fullyinserted into the connector barrel.
Just Four Easy Stepsto a Perfect Connection!

Step 2

Connector for the cablesize being used.Connectors are marked to show cable size.
Connectors marked with just cable size orCU should be used on copper conductors only.Connectors marked “AL9”* with the cable sizeshould be used on aluminum conductors only.Connectors marked “AL9CU”with the cable sizemay be used on the aluminum or copper conductors.
*
 Aluminum lugs with a “9”indicate 90°C rating.

Step 3
Select the proper installing die and appropriate tool.
Step 4
Locate tool with correct die in proper positionon connector and activate tool.When making multiple crimps,make the first crimpnearest the tongue and work towards the barrel end.When properly crimped,the die code number will be embossedon the connector for easy inspection to determine if correctdie and connector combination were used.
Thomas & Betts uses “full-width”and “half-width”dies dependenton connector size and tool used.“Half-width”dies are marked withthe letter “H”after the die code number.Refer to the instruction sheet supplied with the connectors for informationregarding strip length,die selection and number of compressions required.Color-Keyed
®
Connectors have colored bands or colored dots that correspondto color markings on the dies.Connectors and dies also have a die code number marked or stamped on them.Dies have a code number engraved in the crimp surface.

Connectors are banded by colored stripes orengraving to indicate location of die on connector for compression.
