Plastic Shroud for a PC Mount Power Lug

08/09/2016 12:54 PM

I am trying to find the source of the shrouded power lugs shown on the right and left side of the picture below. The two lugs left of center are the same metallic lug but without the snap-on shroud.

It would appear that the metallic part of the lug is a PN: B2A-PCB-45 from lugsdirect.com. It would appear that mechanicallugs.com, ihiconnectors.com and several other internet sites are all the same lugsdirect.com company.

My problem is that I can not find the source of the color coded plastic shrouds for the lugs. I contacted lugsdirect and they do not have the shrouds and do not recommend a source. Most of the other internet sites I find have the same address and/or phone number as lugsdirect.

The plastic shrouds have little friction bumps on the inside near the bottom and they snap under a recess at the bottom of the lug. Very nice, very fast and easy to use.

Anyone use them or have a suggestion? I have had a couple of hours of googling various combinations of "lug", "plastic", "shroud", "power", "PCB" and other terms and I just can't find the source.

Thanks,
Bruce

Sorry this doesn't help a lot, but, the parts you have are actually B2A-PCB

Not B2A-PCB-45

Which mounts at 45°

You do get a lot more hits if you search for just B2A-PCB; you also get a choice of screw head, and mounting style. But no insulators.

I was looking for an image with a part number I could read on the part, but, no luck so far.

They are designed to fit bus bars with these dimensions:-

Bruce's Connectors are this size/shape

Incidentally Bruce,

They do do these back flap insulators: if it's only wires poking out the back you're worried about.

Thanks to all for your efforts. I have a bad feeling that the plastic shrouds might be custom manufactured for the OEM of the sample equipment that I took a picture of.

Any chance of contacting the OEM to verify?
