Conductor Crimping Ranges:  ACSR #8 AWG - 1590 Kcmil

WEJTAP™ COMPONENTS are designed to provide a reliable system connection. The system consists of WEJTAP™ connectors, installation tools (including a variety of hotline and lineman accessories) and a unique Power-booster.

WEJTAP™ CONNECTORS use an aluminum alloy wedge that is power driven between the run and the tap cables locking them into a “C” shaped tempered aluminum alloy spring-body. The spring-body maintains consistent pressure throughout the life of the connection to ensure reliability during severe electrical and climatic conditions. The wedge’s wiping action combined with factory installed PENTX 1530 provides superior contact integrity. The wedge is automatically locked onto the spring-body by a skiving action produced by a lance at the forward end of the WEJTAP™ installation tool.

THE WEJTAP™ TOOL is a one-piece assembly that consists of a head and power unit. Two color-coded interchangeable heads accept all WEJTAP™ connectors and STIR- RUP™. The design of the tool recognizes the need for simplicity and speed of operation as well as outstanding safety features such as automatic gas release vented away from the operator, fast simple breech loading and fast advance when engaging the connector assembly. No loose parts to drop or misplace and a booster ejection system that provides further safety to the operator. Fewer simpli- fied hotline devices and handy lineman accessories complete an outstanding tool package.

THE WEJTAP™ POWER-BOOSTER Patented is a self-contained device that provides the force necessary to drive the wedge into direct contact with the conduc- tors. The booster is activated only when properly positioned in the tool assembly. A power cell in the booster is recessed to guard against premature discharge. The tool/booster system is designed to activate and deactivate the booster automatically should the operator decide to remove the tool from a connector prior to completing the installation. The deactivated booster may be safely removed from the tool.
