Ideal SpliceLine inline connector
By Anthony Capkun
Ideal says SpliceLine’s two ports support a range of solid and stranded wires (12-20 AWG solid, 12-16 AWG stranded), allowing a single SpliceLine connector to cover the same wire range as three standard butt splice sizes. This results in reduced inventory needs for distributors, says Ideal, and more space inside an electrician’s tool bag. SpliceLine’s push-in technology allows you to make end-to-end connections up to two times faster, boasts Ideal. The connectors are precision-moulded from a transparent polycarbonate that permits visual inspection of connections. Multiple connectors can easily and simultaneously pass through the 1/2-in. knockouts found in most electrical boxes because of the shell’s slim profile.
