RACO Shield-IT connectors, introduced in August, are now available nationwide. This new push-in connector provides code-compliant splicing for the double jacketed control/signal pairs of MC-PCS cable inside electrical boxes. RACO, part of Hubbell Commercial Construction (South Bend, IN), provides innovative electrical products to commercial and residential markets.
The Shield-IT design maintains necessary insulation between 16AWG solid copper control conductors and the power-and-lighting conductors inside electrical boxes or enclosures. This makes it code-compliant. Two-pair, three-pair and four-pair models are available.Users save significant wiring time with this unique connector, up to 4x faster than alternate methods; no twisting, crimping or taping wires is required.
