IBS Flat Insulated Braided Conductors are the ideal ready-to-install flexible wire replacement solution. They connect directly to the front access terminals of an electrical device without the need for additional accessories, such as angular connectors, spreaders, ring terminal connectors or extenders. IBS Flat Insulated Braided Conductors are available in cross section of 25 and 50 mm² (49.34 and 98.68 kcmil), lengths from 230 to 1,030 mm (9.06" to 40.55"), and amperages ranging from 177 to 274 A.
Manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified proprietary automated facility, IBS Flat Insulated Braided Conductors are formed by weaving high-quality electrolytic copper wire to form a durable low voltage connector with maximum flexibility that allows for more compact power to electrical device. The IBS Flat Insulated Braided Conductor allows users to reduce the total size and weight of the installation, improving both design flexibility and assembly aesthetics.
The IBS Flat Insulated Braided Conductor features integral pre-punched palms that are ready to connect out of the box. There are no lugs to purchase or install, making connections simpler and faster and eliminating faulty connections due to vibration or fatigue. The insulation is a high-resistance self-extinguishing PVC.
