When choosing a connector it is important to ensure:
- The connector is mechanically robust.
- The connector is selected according to its application.
- The connector is rated for its application.
- To avoid bimetallic corrosion: use a bimetallic connector (do not connect bare copper directly to bare aluminium, or have water run-off from copper fall onto aluminium).
