  • Uses industry-proven spring clamps for wiring.
  • No special tools required for easy wiring
  • Rewiring (repairing) is possible.
  • Each Connector accepts any wire size from stranded wire AWG28 (0.08 mm2) to AWG20 (0.5 mm2). (External sheath diameter: 1.5 mm max.)

No special tools required for easy wiring.
