A Luminary In Electrical Safety
Thomas & Betts (Memphis, TN) has introduced a new Push-In Luminaire Disconnect that enables technicians to change ballasts safely and easily without having to trip the main power breaker. The disconnect is ideal for all fluorescent lighting applications up to 4A, 600V, and complies with 2008 NEC 4010.130(G), CEC 30-308(4), and UL2459. Installation involves stripping the de-ernergized wires and inserting them in the housing, which is designed to eliminate incorrect installation and reverse polarity. The disconnect accepts #18-12 AWG solid wire, or #14-12 AWG stranded copper, up to 19 strands.
