Memphis-based Thomas & Betts, a designer and manufacturer of electrical components used in industrial, commercial, communications and utility markets, has unveiled a new family of Color-Keyed KUBE connectors. The engineering is the basis for KUBE Multi-Tap, KUBE Flags and TEES, and a line of KUBE Motor Lead Disconnects for 600 V and 5 kV applications.

Constructed of high-conductivity copper and with tin-plating, Color-Keyed KUBE Motor Lead Disconnects exceed the electrical and mechanical performance of bolted connections. The female disconnects are engineered with a beryllium copper interface band for the low resistance. A reusable boot provides dielectric strength for insulation and is available for 5kV applications.
