General Information

Elpress Cu-connections and Elpress C-sleeves – Copper Branch Connectors produced from electrolytic 99.9% copper. Terminals and Through Connectors exist in a large variety of types for stranded as well as for flexible conductors. C-sleeves for earth conductor branch off also come in a large number of sized. If a standard type is not suitable, we produce tailor-made designs specific to the application.

Marking includes Elpress logotype and also the die number. On the other side of the C sleeve, the marking shows the size of the Cu wire that fits and the total area. When an adequate crimping is done with the right tool, Elpress’ crimping dies make an impression on the sleeve so that the crimper/ user can check the connection afterwards.

In the tools, there is a built-in full closure system that ensures the completion of the entire crimping process – a prerequisite for professional and quality-assured work.

Patented Solution & Update

C sleeves patentedPATENTED SOLUTION
All Elpress Copper Branch C-Sleeves are based on the patented solution of the previous C89 sleeve. The solution means that the edges of the sleeve overlap after the contact crimping is complete. This patented solution allows the use of multiple joint combinations in one and the same sleeve.

In the autumn of 2018, there was a C-sleeves update in the program. The total number of sleeves changed from 41 to today being 8 sleeves. The number of necessary dies to perform the contact crimping has also been reduced (BC16, BC11 and BC4 are deleted). The sleeves C6-10, C16-25, C25-50 (formerly C89) and C50-70 are tin plated and have a different appearance than our other C-sleeves.
