With ClampStar®, failing splices are repaired with NO power interruption and splice replacement is no longer necessary. ClampStar® installs in a fraction of the time, usually with one man and a hot-stick. No mechanical grips, come-alongs, jumper cables or cutters are needed. And, ClampStar® meets ANSI C119.4 Class AA, extra heavy duty and restores both electrical and mechanical integrity on weathered conductors. There’s no need to cut power or lines and it easily installs over the existing splice. ClampStar® also increases ampacity allowing for system up-rates and is significantly safer than traditional splice replacements. ClampStar® is available in both rigid and flexible versions to accommodate various cable diameters for both transmission and distribution applications.
ClampStar® is a quick, easily installed answer to pressing difficulties in dealing with failing automatic splices. The featured splice connector corrector, the CSR-025 ClampStar® can be installed by one or two men in less than 5 minutes with no power interruption or special tools required. The installed cost of the ClampStar® is a fraction of the cost of replacing failing automatic splices.

*** Last three digits in part number designate the inside frame clearance in inches. Standard clearance lengths are shown and special lengths are available. For non-standard lengths, insert the desired clearance length as 3 digits following the part number expressed as inches; I.e., 044 = 44 inches, 068 = 68 inches, and 108 = 108 inches. Example: CSF-1108-044.
**** Overall lengths and weights are for units with standard inside frame clearance. To determine the overall length of units with special frame clearance, adjust the standard overall length shown by the difference in standard and special inside frame clearances.
NOTE 1: For use on copper conductors, add “–P” to the Part Number to obtain the unit with plated keepers. Example: CSR-0325-015-P.
NOTE 2: Although larger ClampStar units will fit smaller conductor diameters, it is more cost effective to use the smallest ClampStar possible for each specific application. For the most accurate ClampStar selection, use the Max. Conductor Diameter instead of ACSR range to determine the correct ClampStar for your particular application. As always, please feel free to consult the factory for additional information.
NOTE 3: Safe-T-Link SST tether assemblies are available for applications requiring additional mechanical support – contact factory for additional information.
Larger units are in development. For conductor diameters larger than 1.302 inches, please contact Classic Connectors for availability.
Note: Classic Connectors’ policy of continuous product improvement may result in changes in design or specifications without notice.
