Completely submersible IP68 TeeTube connectors; Debox 100% tool-free junction boxes
November 2017, Wellingborough, UK: Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier and manufacturer of electrical and electronic components and enclosures, is exhibiting its connection systems for the lighting industry on Stand B2 at LuxLive, Europe’s biggest lighting event. Stunning lighting demands robust, safe and reliable connections – Hylec offers unique connector systems for internal and external applications, including IP-68 rated, completely submersible underwater connectors and the UK’s original, first completely tool-free terminal block.
The IP-68 TeeTube range of weatherproof connectors suits demanding applications such as fountain and water feature lighting, building and architectural lighting, external signage and many more. Available in straight through, T-splitter and Y-splitter versions, plus dual terminal designs for easy fitting and looping of conductors (2+2 and 3+3 poles), they are simple and quick to install. The IP-68 TeeTube range includes micro-sized connectors, plus chassis-mount options in 2 – 4 poles, with tough, robust construction able to withstand pressure to 3 Bar.
A new product that has taken the trade by storm since its introduction in April is the TH381 TeePlug, a completely submersible waterproof micro-connector for underwater and harsh environment installations. IP68/IP69K-rated and only 14mm in diameter, the TeePlug TH381 Series provides complete protection against high pressure water jets too. Its push-pull design installs up to 80% faster than competitive waterproof connectors. The TH381 Series suits outdoor lighting applications, such as architectural lighting, underwater lighting, road sign and billboard illumination and connection of exterior and interior Class 2 electrical devices.
TeeBox power distribution units are available in standard and micro sizes, with protection rating up to IP68. Typical applications include plug and play lighting installation, plus power distribution.
For internal lighting applications including ring main lighting and LED lighting, the 100% tool less Debox SL in-line junction box really speeds installation for professional contractors. Debox SL can be assembled in a few seconds and is supplied complete with a 16A, UL and VDE-approved, 4-pole screw-less push wire terminal block, DeboxSL joins flat or round profile cable and includes everything to save electricians on-site installation time and reduce costs. No tools are required: after inserting the cables and closing the included cable clamps, the lid is simply snapped shut and held with the supplied locking clip. This innovative cable junction box from Hylec-APL is IP20 protected, flame retardant to UL94V-0, and also suits power installations.
