LAPP EPIC ASC axial screw contact

Friday, 02 June, 2023 | Supplied by: Treotham Automation Pty Ltd

The EPIC ASC axial screw contact from LAPP is a suitable alternative to a crimp contact, as it is designed to enable easy assembly. When crimping, the stripped cables or cores are normally inserted into the sleeves or connectors and pressed together using a crimping tool. The axial screw contact features a new design for inserts and modules of EPIC connectors.

The axial screw contact can be rotated freely in the high-current module, thereby simplifying assembly, preventing torsional stress and enhancing contact safety between the contact and the cable. Due to the assembly outside the module, fitters can also tell whether the connection has been screwed incorrectly. This helps prevent errors or failures that could be caused by insufficient coverage between contact and core, thereby providing low contact resistances and minimum generation of heat at the contact.

The touch protection provides users with enhanced protection when connecting and pulling out the high-current module. For conductor cross-sections of 35 to 75 mm2, only an axial screw contact is required; for the connection, an inner hexagonal spanner and a fork wrench are needed.

The axial screw clamping technique enables a service-friendly connection without a special crimping tool and is suitable for releasable connections.
