Ideal Industries launches Gen II In-sure Lever Wire Connector

Ideal Industries, the global specialist in electrical accessories, tools and testing equipment, has built on the success of its In-Sure Push-In, Lever and SpliceLine Connectors with the launch of its innovative Gen II Lever Connector.

Developed to enable even faster, easier and more consistent wire terminations up to 32 Amp, for any installation, including radial and final ring circuits, the new IDEAL Industries Gen II Lever Wire Connector range is suitable for joining solid, stranded or flexible connectors. Available in two-, three- or five-port models, the connectors are reusable and allow the use of multiple wires of different sizes and types within the same lever connector. Cables can be secured in place in seconds, with no screwdriver or crimping required using a simple strip, push, connect action.

All Gen II models can be used with solid or rigid stranded cables of between 0.2mm2 and 4.0mm2, while suitable for use with any flexible cable from 0.14mm2 to 4.00mm2. Each connector features a built-in wire strip guide to enable installers to check the correct stripping length and, for solid and stranded cables, once the wire has been stripped, it can simply be pushed in with no need to lift the lever. For flexible wires, meanwhile, the lever is lifted before inserting the conductor and clamping it into place. Brett Smyth, general manager EMEA of Ideal Industries explains:

“The Gen II Lever Wire Connectors have been developed following extensive research with electrical professionals as part of our commitment to designing products that are tailored to the needs of our customers on site. They are packed with features to prevent errors and ensure consistency, enabling wire terminations to be carried out more quickly with less risk of snagging.” All the IDEAL Industries Gen II Lever Wire Connectors in the new range have a clear casing to enable easy inspection and there is a check port for testing, enabling full safety and consistency verification at the point of installation. The compact design enables easier fitting in junction boxes and enclosures, which is particularly useful in lighting and access control installations, where multiple conductors often need to come together in a tight space. Brett Smyth added: “We already know that there’s a substantial move towards using lever and push-in connectors as a faster and more consistent alternative to terminal strips because of the success of our existing In-Sure range. The new Gen II range enables even faster consistent connections.”
