Standoff Insulators:

Suitable for a variety of assemblies, the AM4  standoff insulator range supplies excellent mechanical strength and electrical insulation.

Post insulators, egg insulators, bobbin insulators, and busbar isolators are all terms used to describe standoff insulators.

Our AM4 insulating standoffs come in different heights from 30 mm to 60 mm, as well as insert sizes of M6 to M12. Heights, thread depths and sizes, maximum tightening torques, cantilever and tensile strengths, and box quantities are all listed in the table above.

The AM4 insulators have the following properties:

  • Halogen Free
  • Equipment voltage of up to 1000 V AC, 1500 V DC
  • Insulation voltage of up to 1000 V AC, 1500 V DC
  • Operating temperature ranging from −40 °C to +130 °C
  • UL Recognised Component; file number E505645
  • Made from UL 94 V-0 rated, self-extinguishing material

Manufacture:

Termate AM4 standoff insulators are manufactured from halogen free glass-reinforced polyamide 6.6 material and contain precision threaded brass alloy inserts for greater corrosion resistance.

The injection moulding process we use to manufacture our electrical insulating parts improves overall product quality and design accuracy.

Testing:

Product testing is critical for any component that will be used in an electrical or mechanical system.

Professional, thorough, and independent testing has been performed on the AM4 standoff insulator range to assure efficacy when installed correctly in their intended assembly.

Our Standoff insulator range is a UL Recognised Component, more information can be found at UL Product IQ.

One of the most widely used tests for determining the ability of plastic parts to self-extinguish after the heat source has been removed is UL 94. All Termate standoffs meet V-0 requirements for the UL 94 test standard.

Our standoff insulators have undergone comprehensive testing, including cantilever, torque, and tensile tests, to give you peace of mind that they will fulfil specified ratings when fitted appropriately.

Application:

These standoff insulators are designed to hold live busbars and other active conductors as an insulating support, safely and securely, by keeping a gap between two surfaces and is appropriate for assemblies up to 1000 V AC & 1500 V DC.

The electrical insulation and mechanical strength of the support are critical in these types of systems.

A list of some of the most common applications for our insulators include:

  • Battery Energy Storage Systems
  • Electrical panel boards
  • Control panels
  • Switchboards
  • EV power trains
  • Power factor correction
  • Distribution boards
  • Generators
  • Switchgear
  • Controlgear
  • Drives, inverters and converters.

Power distribution, rail (rolling stock & trackside), renewable energy, UPS (temporary and emergency power), and data centre power distribution are all examples of sectors where these electrical installations and assemblies are used.
