  • IP66/IP67 Rotary Isolator Switches
    Need a high performance and low cost Isolator Switch?

    Available in a wide range of specifications, our range of Isolators Switches provide a compact, visible & extremely reliable solution in all commercial & industrial applications.

  • IP66/IP67 RATED
    AC & DC models are both IP67 rated - completely preventing dust and dirt ingress and providing protection from water up to a depth of 1m.

    Manufactured from completely flame retardant polycarbonate rated to UL94V-0; Hylec Isolator Switches provide an additional and often vital margin of safety over competitive products with a lower flame-resistance rating.

    Housed in a larger sized casing, Hylec Isolator Switches have more room to make installation that much easier and faster; saving you time and money.

    Available in a wide range of specifications, they provide a compact, visible and extremely reliable solution in all commercial and industrial environments.

    When used as an emergency stop, it can be locked in the o position using a padlock (not supplied). For safety, the switch is interlocked with the lid to prevent opening while in the “on” position.

    Available as both AC & DC models.

    Housing is robust and highly visible, with yellow covers and red control switches, making them easy to identify when an emergency stop is required.

    The interior mechanism is a 4-pole rotary isolator switch disconnector used to switch power to commercial or light industrial applications.

    Featuring silver-plated alloy contacts for high reliability, earth terminals are included, as well as captive retained cover screws.

  • IP68 Weatherproof Connectors
    Discover our range of IP68 Weatherproof Connectors....

  • The IP68 TeeTube range of weatherproof connectors suits demanding applications such as fountain and water feature lighting, building and architectural lighting, external signage and many more.  Available in straight through, T-splitter and Y-splitter versions, plus dual terminal designs for easy fitting and looping of conductors (2+2 and 3+3 poles), they are simple and quick to install.  The IP68 TeeTube range includes micro-sized connectors, plus chassis-mount options in 2 – 4 poles, with tough, robust construction able to withstand pressure to 3 Bar. 


    A new product that has taken the trade by storm since its introduction is the TH381 TeePlug, a completely submersible waterproof micro-connector for underwater and harsh environment installations.  IP68/IP69K-rated and only 14mm in diameter, the TeePlug TH381 Series provides complete protection against high pressure water jets too.  Its push-pull design installs up to 80% faster than competitive waterproof connectors, saving valuable time on-site & reducing cost.  The TH381 Series suits outdoor lighting applications, such as architectural lighting, underwater lighting, road sign and billboard illumination and connection of exterior and interior Class 2 electrical devices.


    Intuitive and functional in use, TeePlug TH381 connectors incorporate a special coupling system that confirms correct alignment and mating with an audible click and also prevents accidental disconnection, even against opposing forces of 25kg (8Kg according to EN61535).  Models with an additional optional safety system are available to further protect against disconnection by requiring the use of a tool such as a flat-blade screwdriver for uncoupling.   TeePlug TH381’s IP68 water resistance rating is guaranteed even when subjected to bending forces of up to 5Kg, and they are resistant to high pressure water jets up to 100Br, 16l/min at a water temperature of 80degC.   Vibration and external mechanical stresses are no problem either, as cable traction is prevented up to a force of 8Kg.
