The wire is pressed by the wire insertion tool into the contactor slot, which cuts through the conductor insulation. The displacement of the insulation and constant torsional restoring force of the contactor arms, forms a permanent gas tight contact with the contactor. The clamping ribs act as a strain relief on both sides of the conductor ensuring mechanical integrity of the connection. The wire insertion tool terminates the wire and trims it to the correct length. The IDC Modules consist of two rows of contacts, one for permanent wiring, and the other for jumper wires. The modules are available in three forms, Disconnection, Connection and TRC Earth modules.
