The New T-Connector Plug & Socket From Quickwire

Meet the newest addition to the Quickwire range: The T-Connector Plug & Socket. The plug accepts flexible cable, and the socket consists of two QuickwireTM solid core Twin & Earth, loop in/loop out connections. Offering the same dramatic time-savings and ease of use as all Quickwire Junction Boxes, the T-Connector is perfect to use in conjunction with downlights.

The socket is connected at 1st fix, to create a lighting spine. The plug is then wired to a light fitting and simply plugged into the socket at 2nd fix. This makes testing/maintenance easy and convenient. What’s more The T-Connector will even fit through a hole in the ceiling as small as 30mm diameter, making it suitable for the tiniest of downlights. Plugs can also be supplied prewired with PVC cable in bespoke lengths.

Plug For Lighting

The Plug

The plug provides a convenient connect/disconnect at each lighting point and accepts flexible cable. Once your plug is wired it simply plugs into the T-Connector socket completing your connection to the lighting spine. The plug accepts 0.5 up to 1.5mm, 2 or 3-core flexible cable, and comes opened up ready to wire. Unlike most plugs available today ours have smooth lead-ins to each terminal, designed to avoid wandering copper strands. Once wired, snap the one piece plug together (no screws) and in doing so your cable is automatically sheath gripped.

The Socket

The T-Connector socket has all the benefits of two Quickwire connections: screwless, push-fit terminals, which enable connection in seconds. It accepts 2 x 1mm or 2 x 1.5mm Twin and Earth cables.
