AMP developed the SHEAR-LOK Copper Tap/Grounding Connector for applications in the power utility industry where connectors are required to withstand mid-range magnitudes of fault current (20kV symmetrical RMS).
SHEAR-LOK connectors utilise AMP Wedge Pressure Technology and controlled-torque-drive bolts to provide easily applied and highly reliable ground rod connections. This family of connectors is ideal for HV applications where connections must be made between conductor and rod. +UL Listed file #E69905
