TE Connectivity Introduces Wire Connectors for OEM and Installation Markets

TE Connectivity, a world leader in connectivity, introduced its Pushgrip wire connectors and Snap-N-Lokwire connectors, expanding its line of general purpose and specialty connectors for building controls, LED lighting and building equipment. The wire connectors address the need for cost-effective, insulated electrical terminations in the OEM assembly and installation markets.

TE’s wire connectors are designed for use in almost every type of residential and commercial application where multiple wires are connected, including HVAC, lighting, fire security, building equipment and building automation and controls.

The Pushgrip wire connectors are rated at 600 volt max. for building wiring and 1000 volt max. in lighting fixtures/luminaries and signs, and accept solid and stranded conductors from 22 AWG - 12 AWG. They are made from polycarbonate (PC), flame-retardant materials to UL 94-V2 or UL 94-V0, and offer a working temperature of 105°C. Pushgrip wire connectors are color-coded for easy identification, and their compact size is perfect for tight spaces. A test slot in front permits easy voltage testing.

The Snap-N-Lokwire connectors are a quick and simple single-piece connector solution for underground electrical systems. They are pre-filled with a water-resistant sealant for moisture and corrosion protection, and require no special tools for installation. Snap-N-Lokwire connectors are available in three connector sizes for simple installations ranging from 20-10 AWG solid or stranded wire combinations.
