Hubbell’s Combination Wireless Wall-Mount Charger and USB Outlet is Qi Certified and UL Listed for safe, effective charging. To offer flexibility and accommodate different charging needs, the device combines Type A and Type C ports, power, and wireless induction – simply slide a phone into the flexible holder. It provides 7.5W of wireless charging, 5A of USB power, and 15A of 120V electrical current, along with a tamper-resistant receptacle (requiring no extra effort to insert a plug).
Hubbell’s inSIGHT Motor Disconnects incorporate six LEDs into the enclosure cover to provide feedback about the switch’s electrical status for improved safety, convenience, and decision-making. Users can also quickly confirm make/break on all phases. Available in 30A, 60A, and 100A, the solution is offered with non-metallic, stainless steel square, and slope-top enclosures. Replacement covers are also available to update existing installations. In the “off” position, the high-visibility red handle complies with OSHA lockout/tagout requirements. In the “on” position, the cover cannot be opened.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by EC&M magazine this year,” says John Carroll, vice president marketing for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “Both of these products include innovative features that provide safety, convenience and what end-user customers are requesting.”
