TE Connectivity at LFI - The Next Generation of Solutions for Horticultural Lighting

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, will demonstrate how it is illuminating the industry with its latest connectivity solutions for horticultural lighting at Lightfair International (LFI) in Chicago, USA from May 8 – 10, 2018. At the TE booth (#2563), visitors can see how the company’s solutions are helping lighting installers and manufacturers grow their business with TE’s latest components for horticultural lighting.

“Smart LED solutions are the future of horticultural lighting, providing significant cost savings over traditional lighting as well as being tunable to boost yields of specific crops” said Prachi Vyas, product manager at TE. “Whether for large commercial greenhouses or urban vertical farms, our reliable, easy-to-use connectivity solutions are helping to create a sustainable, safer, more productive and connected future. For the horticultural sector, products like our NECTOR T help speed installations and enable manufacturers to bring new lighting designs to market fast.”

Smart horticultural solutions:

LED lighting offers cost-effective, tailored light for growing all types of crops for urban and vertical farming. Supporting the high currents needed for large commercial greenhouses as well as accurate data delivery for hue control, TE’s NECTOR T power system offers a humidity proof, easy-to-install solution for horticulture lighting manufacturers. NECTOR T is a flexible, fully pluggable, modular wiring, sealed connector and cabling system for permanent power and data circuit electrical installations that provides a reconfigurable, “plug and play” alternative to traditional hard-wired electrical connections.

And for connecting discrete wires, its CoolSplice connectors only need a common pair of pliers to pushbutton terminate insulated wires into an insulation displacement crimp contact. CoolSplice is suitable for splicing 22 AWG to 12 AWG (0.34 mm2 - 4.0 mm2) solid and stranded wire.

Grow your business:

For all horticultural lighting designs, TE has the right connectivity solutions to meet end-customer and installer needs. At LFI, TE’s application experts will be available to demonstrate the company’s latest products and help customers find the right solutions to grow their business.
