Mueller Electric Company, Inc., a global manufacturer and distributor of test leads, cables, clips, connectors, custom cable assemblies and accessories for the electronic component, factory automation, and test & measurement markets, has introduced a new and industry exclusive line of its signature Alligator test clips, expressly designed to withstand the typical high-corrosion conditions of coastal, marine and other saltwater environments.
Most stainless steel clips specified for marine applications can be difficult to solder, making them an undesirable solution. To address this specific challenge, the unique design of Mueller Electric marine Alligator clips features solid copper construction for ease of soldering, along with 302 grade stainless steel springs and rivets. The incorporation of stainless steel supporting components offers substantially improved Alligator clip resistance to corrosive saltwater conditions. Initial results of rigorous saltwater testing has field-proven the extended service life of these specialty Alligator test clips by a multiplier of five times over traditional steel or copper test clips.
Mueller Electric Company saltwater Alligator test clips are available in five unique styles, including a 5 amp elongated jaw copper (BU-34M); a 10 amp copper (BU-60M) version; a 50 amp mini battery (BU-46M) version; a 50 amp center spring general purpose (BU-27M) version; and a 100 amp heavy duty marine Alligator clip version, ideal for battery and test work. All standard clip models are available for immediate customer order, with delivery beginning in July 2014. Prices begin at just $2.00 USD. Customization options are available upon request. Please consult the factory for details.
With more than 100 years of successful market innovation in cables, connectors and clamps, Mueller Electric has its industry origins as the inventor of the “Alligator Clip”, a must-have for testing requirements. The company has since expanded its product portfolio, both organically and via acquisition (i.e., J.S. Popper, Crane Connectors) into additional types of electrical testing clips, test leads, test accessories, board-to-board connectors, and custom cable assemblies. All product technologies are sold either directly to qualifying manufacturers, or through some of the industry’s leading authorized distributors, including Allied Electronics, Digi-Key Corporation, McMaster, Newark, RS Electronics, RS Components and Selecta.
