    Hylec-APL’s Tee Family of waterproof connectors provides security to any industry

    UK volume supplier of electrical components, Hylec-APL, has been working with OEMs, installers and distributers in a number of industries to deliver weatherproof connection solutions to a range of high profile applications. The Tee Family range of connectors, plugs and junction boxes allows installers to make quick connections, which are ingress protected to IP68. With a number of sizes and entry options, the range is proving ideal for many applications where connections need to be protected from harsh and wet environments.

    The fully approved all-weather TeeTube, TeeBox and TeePlug are being promoted exclusively by Hylec-APL, based in Wellingborough. The range offers IP68 protection with up to 8 pole connection options (depending on product) and includes cable connectors, plug and socket connectors and junction boxes; the Tee products use dome topped cable glands to provide very quick and secure connections without the need for specialised tools.

    The Tee Family is suitable for many applications in a number of outdoor and industrial environments. Past applications have included fans, pumps, air conditioning, refrigeration equipment and LV power distribution for commercial and domestic premises. Because of the products’ flexibility and Hylec’s product expertise, the company has been able to work with customers to develop solutions for some high profile applications.

    The TeePlug has been used to provide connections for the lighting system at the Singapore Grand Prix, Formula 1’s first night time race. Here the quick and reliable connections were put under extreme pressure as Singapore is known for its frequent and heavy rainfall. The TeeBox has also been used to protect connections and LED drivers in one of the World’s longest shopping centres and some of the most glamorous private yachts in existence.

    Terry Spriggs, Product Marketing Manager for Hylec-APL, comments: “Since the initial launch of these connectors we have had a great deal of interest across a number of industry sectors. The products’ high level of ingress protection makes them suitable for most environments and their simplicity makes them an attractive prospect for installers; especially where regular maintenance or service checks will be required. Our expert sales team is able to work with our customers to ascertain each applications requirements and ensure the correct product is specified. Our large UK stock holding also means we are able to deliver at very short notice.”
