- Corrosion resistant, tin plated, copper braid
- Maintains electrical bond across spliced rails
- Features WEEB Washer technology
- Equivalent to #6 AWG copper conductor
The WEEB-Bonding Jumper is used to create an electrical connection between two pieces of anodized aluminum, galvanized steel, or any electrically conductive metal which has been mechanically spliced. Long spans of mounting rails are sometimes constructed from two shorter rail sections. Manufacturers may recommend that a floating splice be used to allow for thermal expansion. A floating splice is rigidly attached to only one rail, and allows the rails to expand and contract in line with each other. In such cases, via NEC code, it is also necessary to make an electrical splice, which can be done with a WEEB-Bonding Jumper. The Bonding Jumper is constructed of tin plated, braided copper wire with a WEEB washer attached at each end of the Jumper. The WEEB washers provide a reliable, gas tight electrical connection, and the braided copper wire allows for thermal expansion. All bonding jumpers are listed to ANSI/UL 467 by Intertek ETL. Able to sustain equivalent current to 6AWG copper wire (1530A for 6 seconds).
