Bimetallic Lugs

Bimetallic Lugs

What are bimetallic lugs?

Lugs constructed using copper palm and aluminum barrel, used for terminating aluminum conductors onto copper bus bars are known as Bimetallic lugs. They are found in switchgear, control panel, etc. They have a long service life and show good resistance to corrosion. They can make the process of installing, repairing, and maintaining the electric devices simple. The Bi metal cable lug is mostly used when the cables made of aluminum need to be terminated to the copper contact. They are a safe and affordable choice. These lugs are found in various electrical equipment like control panels, combiner boxes in the Solar Panels, switchgear, etc.

why we use bimetallic lugs?

If aluminum cable comes in contact with copper lug, that can lead to dissimilar metal corrosion or galvanic action. This can be prevented by using Bimetallic cable lugs, which can also help to achieve a durable and technically sound joint.
