Published: 25 October 2017 - Sarah Mead
Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier and manufacturer of electrical and electronic components and enclosures, is showcasing its latest products for the electrical trade on Stand B24 at Elex Sandown, Surrey on November 2 & 3.
Well-known for its extensive ranges of junction boxes, terminal blocks, door enclosures, weatherproof connectors and HVAC components, Hylec will be exhibiting several new products at the show. Among these is the new 80A ROTARY ISOLATOR switch, the latest addition to the ROTARY ISOLATOR range of AC and DC switches for industrial and commercial buildings. IP67-rated and able to withstand water up to a depth of 1 metre, ROTARY ISOLATOR switches enable fast shut down in emergencies and ensure the circuit is completely de-energised for routine service and maintenance. With plenty of internal space for ease of installation, this range offers best-value/performance on the market.
Another 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.
The Debox range of in-line junction boxes, including the 100% tool less Debox SL, is also being promoted on the stand. 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 suits internal applications, including ring main lighting, LED lighting and power.
