Being in the midst of beginning a project along the lines N3RR
details on his site, I wandered over to the JetLube site and found
that they state the following wrt SS-30:
"Where U.L. listing is needed, consult Thomas & Betts for KOPR-
What this means I'm not sure but making a point of being clear it's
_not_ UL listed has to mean something to a lawyer somewhere. I can't
find KOPR-SHIELD anywhere on the T&B site, anybody know where to find
I'm curious if there's something explicit in its UL listing that
applies to safety issues related to clamped conductor current
handling during single or multistrike lightning surges.
