Who is American Connectors?

In 1986, American Connectors opened their doors in Fort Worth, Texas as a manufacturer of quality Metal Clad (MC) cable connectors. The American Connectors “Per Fit” line of MC cable connectors was developed to offer a connector that was internally machined to securely fit on a cable without the use of internal springs, retaining rigs, or any other separate internal holding device. Ask your customer what installing a connector 300% faster would add to their bottom line, and we think you’ll end up with a new American Connectors fan.

WATER TIGHT

WATER TIGHT UNION

Designed to bring the cable into a threaded entrance (such as a switch gear, a motor housing, or threaded haz-loc box). This connector is easily installed by loosening the gland nut, screwing the body onto the metal sheath, screwing the male hub into the threaded entrance, and tightening the hub and gland nut.

  • These connectors are designed for outdoor use, but can be used indoors when a seal is required to protect against water spray, dust, corrosive elements, vibration, or other adverse conditions.
  • As with all PER FIT® connectors the 360° contact between the connector and the sheath virtually eliminates the possibility of cable pullout.
  • Assures effective bonding of the cable to the box or enclosure.
  • All connectors are stocked in copper-free aluminum. They are also available in brass, nickel plated brass, and 303, 304, and 316 stainless steel for special applications.
  • For extra corrosive areas, pre-cut lengths of heat shrink are available.
