Clamp down on unsafe connections

12 October 2015

Now available from Martindale Electric is the new range of insulated Drummond G clamps, designed to provide safe and easy connection to bus bars for voltage measurement.

The range of moulded G clamps, which eliminate the need to drill the bus bar, provides installers with a safe and reliable connection, via a standard 4mm socket.

Suitable for connecting power monitoring and measuring equipment, the clamps are clearly colour coded in black, brown and grey colours, to match the colour coding of individual phases in 3 phase systems. All 3 phase colours are also available with a replaceable 0.5A fuse in the clamping screw, providing protection at the source for added safety. Other fuse ratings can be specified as required.

Housed in insulated casing to enhance safety, the range of G Clamps also features a spring loaded contact pin and locking ring to ensure reliable results throughout extended logging periods.

Featuring a fluted grip design, which enables the clamping screw and the locking ring nut to be tightened by hand, whilst wearing PPE insulated gloves, the need to use tools within the bus bar chamber is therefore eliminated, further heightening safety whilst avoiding unnecessary shut downs.

The range of Drummond G Clamps are now available from Martindale Electric in both fused and un-fused versions.
