SNAPConnect Receptacles for Fast, Easy, Reliable Installation

Aug. 30, 2007
Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems has introduced SNAPConnect™, a new electrical receptacle system that is so fast and easy to install that it saves more than three minutes total installation time per device, compared to a conventionally wired duplex. Because SNAPConnect allows consistent, reliable installation every time, project deadlines can be more easily met, increasing productivity.The key to the Hubbell system is the pre-wired SNAPConnect terminal that is installed at rough-in. The system’s pre-stripped leads eliminate the need to make pigtails. After its protective packaging is removed, the terminal is simply snapped into the back of the receptacle; mounting screws are then tightened down and a wallplate is added to complete trim-out. SNAPConnect duplex receptacles are available in Hospital and Specification Grade.• Dielectric Voltage: Withstands 2,000V minimum. • Max. Working Voltage: 125V as rated. • Current Interrupting: Receptacle certified for current interrupting at full rated current with equivalently rated NEMA plug. • Temperature Rise: Max 30°C temperature rise at full rated current after 100 cycles of overload at 150% of rated DC current.
