SYRACUSE, NY — Power management company Eaton has introduced the latest expansion to its Crouse-Hinds series Quick-LokTM Pro line. Designed to improve productivity for electrical construction contractors when connecting conduit and cable to boxes or enclosures, the new 3/8-inch steel single connector is engineered for use with a wide range of armored, metal clad and flexible conduits and comes with a distinct snap-in feature that provides for tool-free installation and removal. This dramatically decreases installation time and can contribute to decreased labor costs on a construction site.
The durable steel design of this steel connector is ideal for healthcare, universities, governmental facilities and other applications that require or prefer steel fittings. The fittings are reusable and are manufactured with an insulated throat design, ensuring added wire protection and a smooth pulling surface.
“The distinct features of this innovative tool-less connector provide a secure and reliable connection for a variety of customer applications,” said Jack King, commercial marketing manager, Eaton’s Crouse-Hinds Division. “The addition of a steel connector gives our customers the choice of zinc or steel in an innovative connector that improves overall productivity through time and labor savings.”
Certified for use with steel and aluminum cable types AC, MC, MCI-A, HCF in sizes ranging from 14/2 through 10/3 and FMC trade size 3/8-inch, the steel single Quick-Lok Pro is cULus certified by Underwriters Laboratories for use in the U.S. and Canada. Rated for use with steel and aluminum armored conductors, the device is also Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approved for use with aluminum interlocking grounding metal clad cable, type MCI-A. Additionally, the new connector is UL listed to be concrete tight when taped, providing optimal reliability for both contractors and facility owners and operators.
