Hexagonal Spacing Sleeves are electrically insulating.

October 20, 2010

Made of polyamide suitable for use in temperatures from -30 to +85°C, hexagonal spacing sleeves exhibit mechanical stability due to internal and external thread inserts that are made of brass and are electrically insulating. Various combinations of threads and sleeve lengths, from M2.5-M6, are available, and dielectric strength is rated at ~40 kV/mm. Accommodating use of socket wrenches and open-end wrenches, hexagonal shape facilitates assembly. Read More
