Applelec launch smart new wiring system, Connect

Connect is a compact, interconnecting and easy-to-install wiring solution for LED Light Sheet, Aura Linear and other lighting products from Applelec. From July 2014 all internal use LED Light Sheet units will be fitted with the new Connect system.

Connect, disconnect, rebuild and amend easily with the versatile Connect system

Connect can be used for simple or complex wiring solutions and features a range of component parts that connect and disconnect with ease. Robust yet incredibly slim, the standard 7.5mm male connector can easily fit through an 8mm opening compared to other connectors which require much larger spaces.

Each Applelec product, including LED Light Sheet, wired with the Connect system features a 300mm wire fitted with a male connector. This 300mm wire connects to a 1200mm wire with a female connector which is fitted to a power supply or supplied with a bare-end to create a standard length of 1500mm. Extension wires in a choice of 500mm, 1000mm, 1500mm and 2000mm lengths can be added between the product and its power supply to a maximum length of 5000mm (up to 5A). All cables are BASEC and UKAS approved.

An inventive selection of splitters ensures the Connect wiring system is highly flexible and these include a T-splitter, 2-way splitter and 6-way splitter. Using a crimpling tool, the versatile T-splitter can be attached  to any wire, anywhere in the system (subject to calculated power travelling to existing wired lighting units) to create a ‘branch’ which feeds a newly added luminaire.

Using a simple plug and play principle, Connect from Applelec is easy to use, install and adjust.
