Revolutionizing Power Connectivity: Exploring Straight Blade EdgeConnect™ Technology by Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems


EdgeConnect™ Technology:

The innovative EdgeConnect™ plunger and spring technology redefines simplicity in installation. By effortlessly inserting strip wires to press the plungers, termination becomes a seamless process. Enhanced by strategically molded leverage points for quick termination releases, future change-outs are hassle-free. Not only does EdgeConnect™ ensure a highly secure connection, but it also eliminates concerns of strand relaxation over time that could be attributable to thermal cycling, vibrations, and mishandling. With its quick installation capabilities, this technology paves the way for significant cost reductions.
