New at LDI from Lex Products are their PowerRamp Crossover Cable Protectors. These units are made from a two-part polyurethane compound process which provides a sturdy lid and base that can withstand heavy traffic with a load capacity of up to 32,600 lbs. per axle. The materials are UV stabilized to sustain strength for extended outdoor use in harsh conditions. Featuring a proprietary “slip notch” friction release design for easy mating and un-mating of connectors, PowerRAMP crossovers, left and right turn units, and end boots are compatible with similar cable protection products of other major manufacturers. In addition, PowerRAMP’s four channels can accommodate up to 1.25 inch diameter cables and hoses and a 1.625 inch wide center channel accommodates up to #2 AWG Type SC 5-wire banded cable, unlike some competitive products with smaller channels. This feature allows lids to lie flat over enclosed cables for increased protection and provides an even crossing surface to avoid trip hazards. PowerRAMP’s exclusive tread design provides extra traction for better foothold in wet or slippery conditions and its bright blue lid is highly visible and identifiable. The entire product is made with non-conductive material for extra safety. Company names and logos can be molded into lids for easy identification and theft deterrence. Additional colors are available.
Also from Lex Products is the first-ever overmolded stage pin cable extension. This proprietary design, construction, and material helps to resolve the problems of damaged housings and ineffective cable strain reliefs, which can loosen with rough treatment. EverGrip Molded Stage Pin Extensions are also the first-ever cULus Listed stage pin assemblies. 100 Amp extensions and 60 Amp extensions are available. They feature an ergonomic, tapered hand grip providing a firm gripping surface for easy mating and unmating. The extension’s rugged, one-piece connector construction inhibits infiltration of contaminants and eliminates joints and loose assembly screws. UV stabilized thermoplastic elastomer exterior protects connector housing in outdoor applications.
