Clamp Star – CRU ♦

Clamp Star – CRU ♦

With ClampStar®, failing splices are repaired with NO power interruption and splice replacement is no longer necessary. ClampStar® installs in a few minutes, with a hot-stick or gloves. No mechanical grips, come-alongs, jumper cables or cutters are needed. And, ClampStar® meets ANSI C119.4 Class AA, extra heavy duty and restores both electrical and mechanical integrity on weathered conductors. There’s no need to cut power or lines and it easily installs over the existing splice. ClampStar® also increases ampacity allowing for system up-rates and is significantly safer than traditional splice replacements. ClampStar® is available in both rigid and flexible versions to accommodate various cable diameters for both transmission and distribution applications.

ClampStar® is a quick, easily installed answer to pressing difficulties in dealing with failing automatic splices. The featured splice connector corrector, the CSR-0325 ClampStar® can be installed by one or two men in less than 5 minutes with no power interruption or special tools required. The installed cost of the ClampStar® is a fraction of the cost of replacing failing automatic splices.
