Hylec TeeTube Connectors Provides Water-Tight Seal to IP68

Teeplugs

The range of TeeTube connectors from Hylec provide a completely water-tight seal to IP68 at up to 5 bar.  In addition to being exceptionally hardwearing and robust, TeeTubes have a unique space-saving design.

The terminal block with secure sealing forms part of the external housing and can be directly screwed to the connector’s entry points, so no secondary housing is required.   The range is very comprehensive and includes straight through, T splitter and Y splitter models for 2 and 3 cable entry in a variety of sizes. There are also dual terminal versions available for easy fitting and looping of conductors (2+2 and 3+3 pole).

Standard Series TTK20 TeeTubes have a diameter of 26.5mm for cables of between 5mm and 13 mm and suit 32A max current.  For really tight spaces, there are Micro TeeTubes which are a mere 23mm in diameter, while larger cables between 8mm and 17mm diameter can be accommodated in the slightly larger 32mm diameter TTK25 Series.

Hylec IP-67 Rated Isolator Switch Box Ensures Machine Safety

AC and DC versions; suits industrial, commercial, machine tools, security,
power supplies and HVAC applications

isolator-boxHylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components and enclosures, is launching a new range of isolation switch boxes.  The new range boasts the best price / performance ratio on the UK market, providing fast electrical isolation for multiple applications, including industrial machinery, commercial buildings, power supplies, security equipment and HVAC.  Isolator AC and DC models are IP67 rated, completely preventing dust and dirt ingress and providing protection from water up to a depth of 1m.  In addition, Isolator switch boxes are manufactured from completely flame retardant polycarbonate rated to UL94V-0, providing an additional and often vital margin of safety over competitive products with a lower flame-resistance rating.

The Isolator AC models are 20A, 25A, 32A, 40A and 63A, with rated operating current for AC-23A circuits of 15A, 20A, 22A, 30A and 43A respectively.  For 3-phase AC installations, rated voltage is 11A, 13A, 15A, 22A and 36A. An 80A AC ISOLATOR switch box will be introduced in early 2017. The three DC Isolator models are 16A, 25A and 32A, with rated insulation voltage of 1500V and rated impulse withstand voltage of 8000V.  Contacts are silver plated alloy which provide superior oxidisation resistance and increased reliability. At just 98mm x 80mm x 145mm, the 20A, 32A, and 40A AC models are very compact, yet highly visible with bright yellow covers and red switches for easy identification.   The larger 63A AC and DC models measure just 98mm wide x 81mm high x 180mm long, again providing a neat, compact solution in all commercial and industrial environments. The Isolator range has TUV approval, and UL approval is applied for.   All sizes are available in 4-pole versions.

Hylec HYLK Kwik Lever Connectors with Lever-Spring Clamp Action

No tools required – wire up fast to save time on site.  Suits stranded and solid cables;
max current 32A, 450V

kwik-lever

Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components and enclosures, is introducing the new HYLK Kwik Lever connector.  The HYLK Kwik Lever range features a lever-spring action clamp and can be used with both stranded and solid cables with a maximum conductor size of 4mm, (AWG minimum 24, maximum 12), enabling professional installers to make really fast, simple and secure connections in seconds. There are no fiddly screws to tighten, the cable insulation is simply stripped to length, inserted into the Kwik Lever connector and once the spring lever is flipped, wires are securely and safely retained with even and constant pressure and no damage to the wire.  HYLK Kwik Lever connectors are reliable, competitively-priced and completely re-useable.  Suitable uses for the Kwik Lever range include lighting, power, heating & ventilation, and inside junction boxes.

The design of the Kwik Lever connector housing makes it easy to see that connections are in place correctly, while the levers overlap the end of the housing slightly for comfortable fingertip operation.  Checking the electrical connections is also quick and simple, as the connector housings have easily accessible testing points.   There are 2, 3 and 5-way single pole models in the HYLK Kwik Lever range to take 2, 3, 4, or 5 individual wires. These compact connectors measure only 9mm high x 18mm wide, and  12.4mm,  18.2mm,  or 24mm long depending on model, so are ideal for applications where space is constrained.   They are rated to 32A, maximum voltage 450V. The Kwik Lever range is CE and RoHS compliant and TUV, UL and cUL approved.
