New Push Grip Wire Connectors from TE Connectivity for Lighting Installations and Residential Wiring Systems
HARRISBURG, PA., USA – March 22, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced the new Push Grip wire connectors for electrical installations. These tool-less, poke-in wire splice connectors provide visual termination of solid and stranded wires in gauges from 22 to 12 AWG (0.5 – 2.5 mm²). The connectors are color-coded according to the number of positions for easy identification, and their compact size enables them to be used in tight spaces. A test slot incorporated into each connector allows for voltage testing.
TE’s Push Grip wire connectors are intended for a wide range of applications such as retrofit lighting, digital signage, light equipment in commercial buildings, and residential wiring systems. They can be used up to 600 V for building wiring and to 1000 V for lighting fixtures. The connectors have an operating temperature range of minus 40 degrees to 105 degrees Celsius and the clear housings are in UL 94V-0 flame retardant polycarbonate.
