Blackburn KUBE® Motor Lead Disconnects, new from Thomas & Betts (Memphis, TN), provide a fast, snap-together connection that saves time in changing out electric motors, eliminating the need to cut through messy insulating tape and unbolt conventional lugs, says the company. The disconnects are installed by crimping the male and female disconnects onto the cables, plugging them together, sliding on the insulating boot, and securing it in place with two Ty-Rap® cable ties (supplied). When the motor needs to be swapped out, just snip the cable ties, slip off the insulating boot and unplug the disconnects. The contacts and body of the disconnects are made of silver-plated, high-conductivity copper for a connection that meets or exceeds bolted-together connectors.
