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.

Schurter Types 4761 & 4762 Waterproof IEC Push / Pull Appliance Coupler

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Schurter presents the new waterproof IEC connector consisting of the appliance inlet type 4761 and the rewireable cord connector type 4762. With its high protection class IP 67 or IP 69K connected or unconnected with cover, this appliance coupler is perfect for supplying power to appliances used in harsh environments such as industrial, marine, laboratories or any type of outdoor appliances.

type-4761

The Push/Pull locking system provides a strong reliable connection, yet at the same time ensures a break-away cable in the event of overdue stress. The blue shape and color of the pull-out mechanism indicates the pull-out direction. A clear catch sound is heard upon the seated connection. The connector style is similar to the international standards of IEC and UL/CSA 60320, but is distinguished by a special arrangement of the contacts, so as not to interchange with conventional power cords. This ensures the maximum power applied, IP protection and the cord retention. The connector can be temporarily submerged in water and can be cleaned with high-pressure hot water cleaners. Both components are very easy to terminate. The inlet 4761 is available with solder or quick connect terminals. The connector is equipped with conventional screw terminals, as commonly seen in rewireable connector designs. Thus, no special tools for wire assembly are necessary.

The appliance couplers are available in black and white. The dual components, appliance inlet and cord connector, can be ordered as complete sets, which simplifies the ordering processes and customer logistics. The inlet and connector are also available as individual components for separate inventorying. Accessory covers are available for both plug parts, providing a waterproof protection IP 67 in plugged state and IP 69K in an unplugged state. These protective covers also offer protection against pollutants, which can potentially contaminate the contacts.

The waterproof appliance coupler set is VDE and UL/CSA approved. The rated current is according to IEC 10A @ 250 VAC, according to UL/CSA 15A @ 250 VAC. The maximum operating temperature is +120°C. Quick connect terminal options for the inlet are 4.8×0.8mm, 6.3×0.8mm or solder. The cord connector can be assembled with cables from 6.0 – 10.0 mm, maximum wire size acc. to IEC 1.0 mm2, according to UL/CSA 14AWG (2.08mm2). The approvals of these connectors according to IEC/UL 60320 simplify the process for the equipment manufacturer to obtain approval of their appliances, because many equipment standards with respect to the power supply refers to these component standard.

Technical Data / Approvals:
- Connectors acc. to IEC 60320-1, UL 60320-1, CSA C22.2 no. 60320-1
- Ratings: IEC 10 A / 250 VAC, UL/CSA 15 A / 250 VAC
- Wire size connector: 0.75 mm2 – 1.0 mm2, 18 AWG – 14 AWG (2.08 mm2)
- Maximum operating temperature: +120°C

Applications:
Typical applications for the types 4761 and 4762 are therefore devices in harsh industrial environments, laboratory equipment, measuring equipment and in the marine sector.

MSM_LA

Schurter’s MSM LA and MSM LA CS latching-action stainless steel and ceramic surface pushbutton switches are now available with a maximum rated switching current of 16 A at 250 VAC, uprated from 12 A. Designed for primary ON/OFF switching, the up-rating on the MSM LA and LA CS expands on their suitability for use in appliances with higher loads.

Metal line switches are especially well suited for use in equipment operated in harsh environments, or applications that require protection against vandalism, such as vending machines, ticket machines, food service equipment, public facilities, and sanitary facilities. SCHURTER’s existing MSM LA and MSM LA CS series have proven especially well suited for such applications, with a rated temperature range of -20 °C to +85 °C, impact resistance rating of IK 07, and an ingress protection rating of IP 64 from the front contact area.

Application areas for the MSM LA and MSM LA CS are expanded, as a result of the increased 16 A rat-ing. These application areas include: various electric machinery, such as conveyors and lifts, medical chairs and surgical tables, oxygenators and aspirators, as well as commercial appliances, such as heat-ers and humidifiers, food processors and coffee mills.

Schurter’s MSM LA series offers a classic stainless steel actuator, with optional point or ring illumi-nation, while the MSM LA CS series offers SCHURTER’s innovative scratch resistant backlit ceramic surface. The LED supply voltage is 24 VDC. The multi-faceted pushbuttons are available with mounting diameters of 19 and 22 mm, and equipped with blade terminals for quickly affixing wires: the pre-assembled cable set is plugged into the quick-connect terminals of the microswitch, which is then snapped into the switch housing. The MSM LA and MSM LA CS series switches comply with the EU low voltage directive, IEC 61058-1 and UL 1054 standards. The microswitches are ENEC, UL, CSA and CQC approved.
