Axis Insulation Piercing Connector

Insulation Piercing Connectors (IPC) is used on all AB cable systems (messenger wire as well as self-supporting system) to take a tap connection. This tap can be used to continue the line, distribute the line, used in street lighting or in-service connections to households.
