Large Gauge Aluminum Splices

Large Gauge Sealed Splices

The Amphenol CIT crimping process produces very little barrel skew, resulting in installations where cables are nearly straight, which facilitates both design and installation. This is accomplished regardless of the orientation of the crimps to one another.

Reliable, Easy-to-Install Connections

Large Gauge Aluminum Splices from Amphenol CIT offers the fastest installation in the industry—a single crimp on each barrel that leaves no burrs for removal in secondary operations. Additionally, the crimps may be applied at any rotational angle on the barrel, and the crimps on each barrel may be oriented at any angle to one another, allowing for quick and easy installation even when the cables being spliced are routed against walls. Standard splices are available for traditional butt splicing of aluminum conductors and transition splicing from copper to aluminum conductors.

Amphenol CIT can also produce custom splices for cable gauges from #10 AWG to 4/0 AWG in lightweight tin, nickel-plated aluminum or nickel-plated copper for applications up to 260⁰C. Whether your need is for a standard splice for rapid entry into service or a custom design, Amphenol CIT provides the solution.
