Blackburn KUBE® Motor Lead Disconnects provide a fast, snap-together connection that saves time in changing out electric motors, eliminating the need to cut through messy insulating tape and unbolt conventional lugs. The Blackburn KUBE® Motor Lead Disconnects are easily installed by crimping the male and female disconnects onto the cables, plugging them together, sliding on the insulating boot and securing it in place with two Ty-Rap® cable ties (supplied). When the motor needs to be swapped out, just snip the cable ties, slip off the insulating boot and unplug the disconnects.
The contacts and body of the KUBE® Motor Lead Disconnects are made of silver-plated, high-conductivity copper for a connection that meets or exceeds bolted-together connectors. A stainless steel spring ensures a secure connection between the disconnects. The disconnects are color coded using the Color-Keyed® system – an industry standard pioneered by Thomas & Betts – to ensure the correct match of cables, connectors and dies as a system, and to facilitate visual inspection. They are available in wire sizes ranging from no. 16 AWG to 500 Kcmil for 600-volt applications and no. 8 AWG to 4/0 AWG for 5 KV applications.
