A busbar assembly for electrically connecting a plurality of conductors includes a housing defining an interior cavity and first and second ports. The first and second ports each include a conductor passage and communicate with the interior cavity. The conductor passages are each adapted to receive a conductor therethrough. An electrically conductive busbar conductor member is disposed in the interior cavity. At least one holding mechanism is provided to selectively secure each of the conductors to the busbar conductor member for electrical contact therewith. Sealant is disposed in the conductor passages of each of the first and second ports. The sealant is adapted for insertion of the conductors therethrough such that the sealant provides a seal about the inserted conductors. The sealant may be a gel.
