Ideal Industries’ Met-Con connector for replacing LED modules
By Alyssa Dalton
November 1, 2013 – Ideal Industries has introduced the Met-Con connector for the LED market that houses its PowerPlug 182S 2-pole luminaire disconnect.
Equipped with a connector latch, the enclosure enables electricians to easily replace LED modules located in the air handling space without the use of tools, says the company. To make the replacement, users pull down the module, undo the latch, and disconnect the Met-Con to cut power from the luminaire. The Met-Con is exclusively designed to fit Ideal 182S 2-pole disconnects for 18-22AWG wire sizes, and is tested for use in Class 2 LED modules applications to UL 1598 Luminaires Standard.
