Long Palm & Barrel
Long palm and long barrel copper compression lugs for earth / ground terminations primarily used in the telecommunications industry. The palm is typically drilled to suit two fasteners and the barrel is longer than usual to provide earth cables with a strong, low impedance path to ground electrodes and components. Hellermann Tyton long palm and barrel lugs are made from seamless 99.9% seamless copper tube extrusions, the connectors are formed, annealed, and finally electro tin plated. The tube wall thickness and relative inside and outside diameters are specific to Australian and New Zealand standards and suit Australian metric compression tooling. The conductor size is stamped on the lug palm.
