3M Has Your Wiring Needs Covered
3M DBY/DBR Direct Bury Splice Kits are real time savers when installing underground electrical systems. Every component for the splice is included in the kit. The insulator tube is pre-filled, eliminating the chance of the installer using too much or too little sealant.
No crimping tools, no waste, no mess. Just quick, reliable underground splices for irrigation and sprinkler systems, landscape lighting and other  underground projects. The splice may be re-entered without cutting the wires (new tube required)
Flexibility
  • The DBY and DBY-6 splice kit connects a wire range of 2-5 #18 AWG through 2 #12 plus 1 #16 AWG solid or stranded copper wire.
  • The DBR and DBR-6 splice kit connects a wire range of 5 #16 AWG through 3 #10 AWG solid or stranded copper wire.
  • Sealant does not set up hard, allowing splice to be reworked without cutting wires (new tube required).
  • Application temperature range:
    32  - 120F (0 - 49C).
  • Storage Temperature: 120F (49C) maximum.
  • Non-U.V. Stable
Economy   
  • Insulating gel is already contained in the tube.
  • Long-term electrical properties reduce callbacks and rework.

Dependability

  • Locking fingers in the tube ensure that the Scotchlok™ connector (twist-on wire connector) stays in position.
  • The closed tube cover provides strain relief
  • Design protects against corrosion failure.

 

The Scotchlok™ Y and R connectors (twist-on wire connectors) are UL listed. When assembled in the tubes of the DBY-6 and DBR-6 products, the splices are UL listed for 600 volts maximum as a wire connector system for use with underground conductors.
