Don Findley, TE Connectivity Field Service Technician

Mr. Don Findley, TE Connectivity’s Field Service Technician, trains a group of Arizona linemen on the proper use and maintenance of the AMPACT lightweight Power-Actuated Tool.

TE Connectivity’s Wedge Pressure Technology has been field proven for over 40-years, utilizing AMPS’s C-Wedge system.

TE photo 1Developed to overcome the physical and electrical limitations of traditional compression or bolted connectors.  Its design addresses four key areas affecting connectors performance by:

  • Maximizing contact between the connector and conductor surfaces
  • Overcoming the problems associated with oxidation of metallic surfaces
  • Maintaining a constant force within the connection for the life of the connector, while compensating for thermal expansion or “creep”
  • Providing a simple, fool proof method for connector installation

If you would like additional information on the AMPACT C-Wedge System please contact the Gorman office at distribution@gorman-co.com.
