HARRISBURG, NC (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
The Improved Kenny Clamp connector bonds grounding electrode conductors to panelboards, switchboards, cutout boxes, metallic conduit, boxes and transformer enclosures. Kenny Clamps are now available for immediate delivery from Galvan Industries.
Available in 10 solid and stranded wire configurations, the new patented Kenny Clamps are UL 486A listed for connectors and comply with UL 467 requirements for grounding and bonding of electrode conductors in panel boards, pad mounts, dry type transformers, metallic raceways and enclosures.
The Kenny Clamp is designed to be installed through a ½” knockout with paint removed. It is held in place with a steel locknut. The grounding electrode conductor is then inserted through the Kenny Clamp and secured by tightening the compression nut, meeting the applicable requirements of NEC 250.8 and NEC 312.5(A).
Before Kenny Clamps, contractors sometimes used sheet metal screws or non-listed connectors for grounding enclosures - neither of which is NEC-compliant. Thanks to their easy installation, Kenny Clamps actually save time for installers while enhancing connection integrity and safety.
Galvan Industries offers a full line of electrical grounding products and connectors that are used in residential, commercial and industrial applications, including construction, cable TV, lightning protection, power transmission and telecommunications. They are available from leading electrical wholesalers and distributors throughout the United States.
In addition, Galvan is the only U.S. manufacturer to produce UL-listed galvanized ground rods, UL-listed copper-coated ground rods and CSA-listed stainless steel ground rods for use in the U.S. and Canada.
