  • SPY EasiLug is a quick, safe and easy means to fit lug terminal single core aluminium cables into a classical PowerSyntax single pole connector. It combines the reliability of a lug termination cable with the convenience of a PowerSyntax connector. The result is an IP67 waterproof terminal block, which also enables to disconnect the line without need of any tools (this operation must be carried out in absence of voltage).


  • Advantages:

    - Super quick assembly.
    - Versions available for cables up to 300 mm².
    - Reusable to fit cables with different lengths.
    - Grants electrical safety and easy phase identification without the need of other devices.
    - Greater versatility than any other high power single pole connection.
    - Lug terminal cables directly fitted into mechanically keyed, color coded PowerSyntax connectors.
    - Less maintenance than cables fitted with set screws/sleeve  systems, or crimped cables.
    - Standardises the single pole connections, using the  same connector’s body as SPX/SPZ with crimp or set  screw contacts.
    - Quick connect cables with lug terminals into power distro devices equipped with PowerSyntax panel-mount connectors.

    Aluminum/copper bimetal contact for aluminium cable

    The bimetallic contacts are obtained by friction welding of aluminium and copper as raw materials. The crimp terminals are made of aluminium to allow corrosion-free termination on to aluminum cables.

  • Since the PowerSyntax connectors were first introduced on the market, they have been used in a number of different applications from events to mobile generators to backup power systems. As well as improved safety compared to previous standards, for most users one of the main advantages of the PowerSyntax has been its quick and easy connection. SPX and SPZ standard PowerSyntax connectors are suitable to be used with various copper cable sections. For some applications, though, there has been a demand that these connectors may be used with aluminum cable. However, as the standard PowerSyntax connectors feature copper or copper based contacts, they should not be used for direct termination on to aluminum cables as galvanic corrosion and overheating may occur. The aluminum/copper bimetal contact of the SPV allows the use of the PowerSyntax connectors with aluminum cable, combining the advantages of this type of connection with the lighter weight associated with aluminum cable.
