IBSB/IBSBR Insulated Braided Conductor for Circuit Breakers

IBSB/IBSBR is the ideal ready-to-install flexible wire replacement solution that is specifically designed for connections to all molded case circuit breakers, including the most compact breakers on the market. It connects to the front access terminals of the breakers without any additional accessories, such as angular connectors, spreaders, ring terminal connectors or extenders. IBSB/IBSBR is available in cross section of 25 to 240 mm² (49.34 to 273.65 kcmil), lengths from 230 to 1,030 mm (9.06" to 40.55"), and 80 to 350 A tinned and 400 to 630 A bare (red) copper.

Manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified proprietary automated facility, IBSB/IBSBR is formed by weaving high-quality electrolytic copper wire to form a durable low voltage connector with maximum flexibility that allows for more compact power connections to circuit breakers. The IBSB/IBSBR allows users to reduce the total size and weight of the installation, improving both design flexibility and assembly aesthetics.

The IBSB/IBSBR 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.

IBSB/IBSBR is compatible with all major brand molded case circuit breakers. Contact your ERIFLEX representative to determine the correct size for your application.

Features
