TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is extending its LUMAWISE lighting product platform with the introduction of LUMAWISE Endurance N+ base and covers. In a market with increasingly stringent regulations and fierce competition, LUMAWISE Endurance N+ base and covers give streetlight control manufacturers low-cost options with different heights to meet requirements for ANSI C136 network controls.

 

Cost-effective design

“Our LUMAWISE Endurance N+ base and covers are strategically designed to reduce applied cost during the assembly process,” says Scott Hamilton, TE global product manager. “Our product incorporates an integrated gasket, where previously one needed to be purchased and applied separately.”

 

Key features and benefits

LUMAWISE Endurance N+ lighting control accessories include a NEMA- and ANSI-certified base assembly and cover that provide an integrated solution, combining a power and signal interface between the lighting control and dimming receptacle. The assembled base and cover provide an IP66-rated control enclosure, helping to protect from harsh conditions including rain, snow, and salt spray.


TE offers 3P, 5P, and 7P base assemblies along with an option for a vent in the assembly. TE also offers installers an assembled IP66-rated shorting cap.

Key benefits of LUMAWISE Endurance N+ lighting base and covers include:

  • Signal contact layout — Signal contact layout allows larger creep distances compared to the previous generation.       
  • Integrated solution — Integrated gasket simplifies assembly and decreases assembly time. The previous generation required a separate gasket applied by hand.

 

The LUMAWISE Endurance N+ base and covers are well-suited
for applications such as street and roadway lighting or commercial and campus
outdoor lighting.
