Utility equipment: The T&B® Cable Tray flexible coupler kit, new from Thomas & Betts (T&B), features a bendable plate that allows for electrical continuity, which eliminates the need for a bonding jumper. The flexible coupler kit also provides maximum horizontal installation flexibility and easy installation that eliminates the need for cutting cable tray side rails.

“We designed the T&B Cable Tray flexible coupler kit to be quickly and easily installed, and it provides excellent cable protection that ensures electrical conductivity without bonding devices,” Ralph Donati, product marketing director at T&B, said. “It is a flexible and economical alternative to the more common AU/AH fitting.”

Other features include an exterior strap that provides an accurate radius for any cable tray design requirements, formed ribs for greater cable protections and no sharp edges. It meets electrical continuity requirements of NEMA VE1 and CSA C22.2 No. 126.1.
