CRL High Flex Bonding Leads


Cabletec’s CRL260 bonding leads are designed to withstand exceptional levels of flexing in combination with outstanding resistance to corrosion and salt attack. When tested to the flex endurance test detailed in EN4199-001, they withstand over 5 million cycles, outperforming other existing aerospace standard leads by more than 5 times.

CRL260 bonding leads are particularly suited for dynamic applications in exposed areas such as external aircraft doors and flaps.

Applications:  Aerospace, Military

Materials:  Nickel-plated Copper
 

CFBA1068 Aluminium Bonding Leads


CFBA1068 aluminium bonding leads are designed for aerospace applications requiring electrical bonding in combination with light weight. They are supplied insulated and with a protective chromate conversion coating, making them particularly suited to applications in contact with aviation fuels.

CFBA1068 bonding leads are available in a range of lengths and 2 sizes of specially formed aluminium terminals.

Applications:  Aerospace, Military

Materials:  Aluminium
 

QBL150 Quick Release Bonding Leads


Cabletec’s quick release bonding leads provide an effective hand-releasable method of earth bonding electrical equipment. They are particularly useful for applications where a temporary connection is required or where equipment needs to be removed quickly over multiple times.

QBL bonding leads comprise of a flat tin-plated copper braid with a crimped ring terminal at one end and a BNC or TNC connector at the other. The connector is connected to equipment via a mating receptacle, mounted to the equipment to be earthed.

Applications:  Aerospace, Military, Industrial

Materials:  Tin-plated Copper

LN9264 Flat Bonding Leads


LN9264 is an established Aerospace and Defence specification containing a series of uninsulated tin and nickel-plated copper bonding leads terminated with a range of crimp style round terminals. They are commonly used on legacy aircraft and form the basis of more recent bonding lead specifications such as JN1061 (Typhoon), EN4199-003 and Cabletec’s CBL range.

They are available in 6 standard cross-sectional areas and a limited range of lengths.

Applications:  Aerospace, Military

Materials:  Tin-plated Copper, Nickel-plated Copper
 

Customised Bonding Leads


In addition to our standard products, we provide a comprehensive design and build service producing fully customised bonding leads, each with its own unique part number.

Our bonding leads are constructed from an extensive range of in-house manufactured braids and ropes combined with components from a multitude of termination, insulation and identification options, resulting in bonding leads specifically tailored to meet the exact demands of your application.

Furthermore, we aim to keep minimum order quantities low, lead times short and ensure that our product quality and customer service levels are consistently high.

Applications:  Industrial, Energy, Rail, Aerospace, Military, Marine

Materials:  Plain Copper, Tin-plated Copper, Nickel-plated Copper, Stainless Steel, Aluminium,

FBL Pressed Ferrule Bonding Leads


FBL bonding leads are manufactured from tin-plated copper flat braid, terminated at each end with a pressed ferrule type connector. The benefit of using pressed ferrules is that you achieve maximum electrical contact with minimum resistance.

FBL bonding leads are flexible, robust, durable and reliable; perfect for the most demanding industrial applications. They are available with a wide range of standard lengths and hole sizes, and with or without insulation. In addition, they have low minimum order quantities and short manufacturing lead times.

Applications:  Industrial, Energy, Military, Rail

Materials:  Tin-plated Copper
 

RBL Rope Bonding Leads


RBL bonding leads are stranded rope construction assemblies manufactured from annealed copper-ETP1 manufactured to BS EN13602. They are robust, highly flexible and durable, making them perfectly suited to dynamic applications and those in high vibration environments.

In addition, RBL bonding leads boast large cross-sectional areas whilst keeping overall diameters to a minimum making them ideal for size restricted applications.

Applications:  Industrial, Energy, Military, Rail

Materials:  Tin-plated Copper

Power Shunts - Large Braided Connectors


Power shunts are large cross-sectional area braided connectors, customised and designed to meet the increasing demands of power distribution applications.

They are often designed with multi-layers of flat or round braids to achieve sizes of up to 1000mm2 and to carry currents in excess of 400 amps.

Used as an alternative to solid bus bars and power cable assemblies, power shunts are capable of carrying very high currents yet are flexible, robust, easy to install and cost effective.
