TE Connectivity Introduces Hot-Pluggable Connectors for Lighting Ballasts
A new connector for fluorescent ballast lighting applications provides a hot-pluggable disconnect to allow safe field servicing without exposing personnel to electrical shock hazards. Available in 2 or 3 positions, LIGHT-N-LOK connectors feature an integral strain relief to maximize wire retention by preventing inadvertent wire twisting and pullout. Wire retention exceeds 25 pounds (11.3 kg). Dual squeeze-to-release latches provide additional security by preventing unintentional disconnects.
The connectors use a tool-less poke-in termination of 18 AWG (0.82 mm2) wire for fast, easy installation in the factory or field. With a rounded, snag-resistant design, the UL 94V-0-rated housings fit into standard 5/8-inch diameter (2-position) and 7/8-inch-diameter (3-position) knockout openings for easy use in both new and retrofit applications. The products can be supplied as assembled connector sets, with or without flying leads.
LIGHT-N-LOK connectors are designed for commercial lighting per UL 2459 and meet the latest requirements of both the U.S. National and Canadian Electrical Codes. The housings are marked in English and French to support the Luminaire Labeling Requirements of the Canadian Standards Association. The ROHS-compliant connectors are rated for 5 A at 600 VA
