Connecting Power for a Variety of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs)


YAD HYLUG™ Uninsulated Compression Terminals

YAD lugs are especially suitable for OEMs and large lug users such as locomotive, generator and transformer facilities. The terminals accommodate wire sizes from #8 AWG through 600 kcmil (6 mm² through 300 mm²) copper code and flexible conductors and will handle the voltage of the conductor insulation for the given terminal. They are designed with a brazed seem barrel and V-groove inner serrations to enhance pull out results. Each size lug is available with a number of different stud holes.

The YAD lugs are also rated for the ampacity of the conductor that the terminal accommodates. Contact your Graybar representative or call 1-800-GRAYBAR for more information.
