Hello guys and girls I was wondering if you have any advice to give to a meter installer. I’m often worried about over-tightening terminals inside the meter. How easy is it to break the strands on 16mm copper or 25mm? I tighten the terminal until I can’t tighten them anymore. But I’d this right or should I be just tightening until I feel enough resistance? We never used to have this problem with the old meters as they were flat head terminals and you couldn’t get a lot of torque on them. But these Modular screws with plus and minus screw drivers get a lot of torque on them and I’m worried I could damage the strands.
