3M Corp. is now shipping the MX2000, a dropwire connector designed for distribution, protection and customer termination in overhead lines and protect networks in the harshest environmental conditions.

The MX2000 connector, the latest generation of 3M IDC (insulation displacement connector) connectors, fully encapsulates terminations with a watertight material, helping to protect the network from all kinds of weather.

Dropwire terminations are made with a screwdriver or 216 tool and are designed to prevent incorrect installations in the field, further ensuring network protection.

The new connector fits all existing networks and can accommodate a range of dropwire sizes, from 0.4 mm to 1.1 mm conductors, and allows for multiple re-terminations.
