I am connecting 6 awg aluminum wires and 10 awg copper wires with a Polaris connector for my new cooktop. What are the correct torque settings?
The torque range will be based on the wire and the connector size, I have the chart printed out so my guys use the right value. #4 connector with #6 wire = 35 in lbs, #10 wire= 15 in lbs. Connector 1/0 #6 wire= 55 in lbs , #10 wire =25 in lbs. If you have a different size connector it may not be rated for the wire sizes you have. I printed the chart out several years back but torque values don’t change.
You may want to consider using a bi-metal connector like one of these: https://www.homedepot.com/p/AlumiConn-2-Port-Al-Cu-Wire-Connector-25-Pack-95025/204958913?cm_mmc=Shopping%7CG%7CVF%7CD27E%7C27-11_TOOLS_%26_ACCESSORIES%7CNA%7CPLA%7c71700000033101173%7c58700003868916496%7c92700031090205821&gclid=CjwKCAjwqZPrBRBnEiwAmNJsNpYT_0CoS-n3l92T4SHlOz76ZT-zTWW-JYJIi-9P3oE-GE0ouv_6hRoCdX0QAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
if the Polaris connector you refer to is not specifically designed for bi-metal.
