Street Lighting Controls

TE Connectivity is a full-service innovation partner, leveraging cross-industry engineering experience to enable the rapid adoption of connected LED lighting in outdoor applications through modular, plug-n-play solutions for power and data.

By leveraging our core competencies of molding, stamping, plating and assembly, TE Connectivity can now deliver a full plug-n-play solution for street lighting controls. Through the (rotatable) dimming receptacle TE can provide the receptacle side of the interconnect and by developing a base plate and cover containing the mating power and the signal connections, TE can deliver a photo control form factor that manufacturers can build further upon. The complete solution is designed with the harsh conditions of outdoor lighting in mind.
