TE Connectivity – IP66-rated lighting-control connector assembly provides power and signal interface


TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced ANSI 136.41-compliant LUMAWISE photo-control base assemblies with sleeves and covers in varying heights and in 76mm and 81mm diameters. These products provide a complete power and signal interface between the photo-control unit and dimming receptacle.

TE’s LUMAWISE base assembly includes robust twist-lock terminals for power, spring-leaf terminals for signals, and a separately packaged foam gasket. When coupled with the 5VA rated cover or with coloured sleeves, the fully assembled photo-control unit has an IP66-rated seal which protects against dust and heavy jet spray.

TE’s new LUMAWISE assemblies feature translucent covers which transmit daylight to the photo-control device’s light sensor. There is also an option to specify clear covers to allow more light to pass through to the light sensor.

The sleeves may have an aperture on the side or top to accommodate directional light sensors.

The new base assemblies complement other LUMAWISE products, including the receptacle side of the interconnection, providing a complete TE solution for the photo-control unit in street lighting and other outdoor applications.
