HellermannTyton (Milwaukee, WI) has announced a significant, space-saving modification to its line of HelaCon Plus push-in wire connectors, now called HelaCon Plus Mini. This type of connector speeds the process of connecting electrical wires, which has traditionally been managed with twist-on wire connectors. The HelaCon Plus Mini’s design is highlighted by its double-spring retention system. Individually, the spring plates have greater flexibility than competitive connectors. This promotes easier insertion of wires and helps prevent stranded wire from separating during installation. In tandem, the springs produce superior extraction force for ultra-reliable connections. Additional benefits include:
- A smaller footprint that is especially appreciated in the typically tight spaces associated with electrical enclosures.
- Availability in multiple configurations, from as few as two up to eight wire ports, to address most wire connection scenarios.
- The ability to accommodate a wide range of wire gauges, from 12-22 AWG solid copper wire and 14-22 AWG stranded wire.
This product will fully replace the original HelaCon Plus line of wire connectors later this year.
