Robust and Reliable Appliance Connection - Glow Wire Connectors included
Connection of electrical appliances is still mainly made by screw connectors. However, connectors with facilities for push-in conductors are becoming more popular, as are plug connectors, and have become an integral part of our product range.
Special requirements for each connection are robustness and reliability of contacts. Sensitive and valuable appliances such as automatic coffee machines, heating and air condition devices, washing machines, etc. should be protected by additionally providing the current conductor with a fuse link.
The standard for household appliances EN60335-1 makes high demands on the connector, with glow wire test compliance often needed. This applies to appliances and devices that are permanently connected to the mains power supply and, that are not constantly supervised. These are among others, cooling units, flow-type heaters and drink dispensers. Adels-Contact was the first manufacturer who complied with the standard with their range of halogen-free and RoHS-compliant terminal blocks and connectors. Now, the glow wire product range is designed to be used in a wide range of applications.
