The Color-Keyed® compression system ensures a proper crimp onto the conductor by matching the right connector to the right tool and die, using a color coding system that was developed and introduced to the industry by Thomas & Betts. When using the Color-Keyed® compression system with our Blackburn® line of compression connectors, the installer can count on a reliable, high quality connection.

Features & Benefits

Stranded Wire Termination

The precision hardened steel dies used by the Color-Keyed system exert tremendous, controlled pressure on the connector and form the strands and connector into a solid mass.

Verifiable and Inspectable

A die code embossed onto the Color-Keyed connector during compression makes it easy for inspectors to compare the finished crimp with the die table to verify correct termination.

Shure-Stake® Crimp Mechanism

The Shure-Stake crimp mechanism eliminates guesswork and produces proper terminations every time.
