Product Description

AFL’s optical ground wire (OPGW) wedge dead end improves the ease and speed of
installing OPGW as compared to bolted and formed wire devices. The wedge dead end
is sold mostly assembled and only requires connecting three components (the body,
top wedge and locking pin) during preparation. The unique cam action in the pivoting
cable guide ensures proper alignment of the wedges prior to loading and the wedges
automatically provide the necessary gripping action to meet the holding strength
requirements. A removal tool (sold separately) is available to unlock the wedges for
situations requiring additional adjustment of the dead end.
