Utility Solutions Inc. has launched the Padmount Hex Adapter Set, which allows greater access to bus bar connectors inside padgear. The sets are manufactured at the company’s Hickory, N.C., plant.
URD cabinets house electrical connections crucial to distribution systems. Heavy gauge wire connections inside the cabinets use bus bars, which can be difficult to reach. Open-end box wrenches, ratcheting wrenches and socket drivers cannot always engage the Allen head bolts because of obstructions or even the cabinet walls themselves. The low-profile adapter set solves these issues, allowing greater access for most any standard wrench.
The set includes one 3/8-inch and one 5/16-inch adapter with a 3/4-inch hex head, allowing any standard wrench to engage Allen head connectors with as little as half-inch clearance. The low-profile design is made from hardened steel and fits all standard bus bar connectors.
