What is a Push-In Wire Connector?
Push-in wire connectors and lever connectors are designed to safely secure wiring jobs. These easy-to-use devices are designed so you can simply strip the wire you wish to connect and push it in to the port to form a reliable and secure connection. Most connectors are constructed with an ergonomic design that allows for easy handling and a more comfortable push-in connection. They also come with color coding so that it makes it easier for you to distinguish. Additionally push in wire connectors can feature a semi-transparent end for you to easily verify a connection.
What is a port?
A port on the push-in wire connector is the opening where the wire is secured. A port is also often called a conductor. Push-in wire connectors are designed with a number of ports to suit many electrical applications. The number of ports can vary from 1-8 to meet any project’s need.
What wires can they be used with?
Push-in wire connectors can be used with solid and stranded wires up to 2.5 mm.
What are Wire Nut Types?
There are two wire nut types:
Twist-On – this is a traditional type of wire nut that has been used the longest. Just as the name says, you use these by twisting two wires together to fasten them.
Push-In – the more contemporary type is when the wires are pushed into a conductor. These allow the wires to function in any electrical project that originally used a twist-on. To remove the wires you have to pull and twist.
What are Mounting Carriers?
A mounting carrier will help keep the connectors in place and should be mounted on a smooth surface to create greater stability.
What is an Angled Rail Adapter?
This is designed to be used with a mounting carrier and it will give you the option of horizontal mounting for your carrier.
Why do I need a Strain Relief Plate?
Every time a cable is plugged, unplugged or when there is some kind of force exerted on them, these plates will help relieve some of that stress. Strain relief plates are made to absorb the majority of those forces to keep the cables unharmed.
What is a Self-Adhesive Marking Strip?
This particular marking strip allows for marking through a thermal printer or permanent marker. It was designed to be used with terminal block for chassis mounting. The underpart of the motor would be an example of this.
What is an Electrical Splice Box?
This box is filled with non-toxic gel surrounding the splices for waterproofing and is semi-transparent so that it can be examined afterwards. This one piece design will protect cathodic splice from corrosion, be a quick installation, and won’t cause any mess.
What does a Splicing Connector do?
These connectors are used to terminate the following without tools:
Fine Stranded Conductors
It will prevent any accidental contact with live parts and can be used with mounting carriers. A voltage test point is also located at the top of the device for safe and easy testing. It can come with 2,3, and 5 conductors depending on your needs.
