elmex has developed a range of Neutral Links for termination of neutral and ground wires on bus bar. Neutral Links elmex type KNL 4, KNL 16 and KNL 35 are suitable for termination of rated conductor size 6, 16 and 35 sq mm respectively. Conductor clamping is by screw-clamp mechanism in all these three types of links.
elmex Neutral Links basically comprise of four parts i.e. terminal clamp, contact holding piece, terminal screw and the insulation housing made of Polyamide 6,6. These neutral links are mounted on the bus bar. Bus bars needed for termination are available in standard length of 1 meter which can be cut to the required length at the customer end. Further, bus bars are available in rectangular cross sections of 10 x 3 sq mm as well as square cross sections of 6 x 6 sq mm and both of these sections are for use with all three types of links.
Neutral links along with bus bars can be mounted in the Eleqtric wiring panel either on the DIN rail or surface.
For mounting on DIN rail, elmex side clamp type SCNL is to be used. It is suitable for mounting on TS 35 / TH 35 type DIN rails and is designed for accommodating both types of bus bars. The side clamp is designed in such a way that two bus bars with neutral links can be fixed at staggered height offering more flexibility in termination.
For surface mount applications, plastic support elmex type KNLSUP can be used. Support KNLSUP can be used. Support KNLSUP is designed for mounting both sizes of bus bars.
