Color-Keyed Compression Lugs

Color Keyed® is a system solution designed to meet the most stringent UL & IEC Class A testing requirements.

Our Color-Keyed® lugs are made of 99.9% pure, oxygen-free copper. The Color-Keyed® color-coded crimping system assures the right die is used with the right lug resulting in an accurate, reliable crimp. Color-Keyed® dies are designed to produce a circumferential, hex- or diamond-shaped compression rather than a simple indent resulting in assured high conductivity, exceeding IEC 61238-1 and UL standards. Circumferential compression creates large area of high pressure contact between cable and connector which in turn results in low resistance and high pull-out values.
