The entertainment industry requires high performance electrical devices that can reliably deliver in the most adverse environments. Film and television studios, concert venues, theaters and conference halls require devices that can be flexibly applied, and that can withstand greater amounts of stress and heat than the average device. Filling this market need, Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems introduces our newest line of stage Pin devices, specifically designed to solve many of the problems end-users experience when using these types of devices to connect dimmers to stage lighting instruments and to power other types of equipment.
This family of devices include 20, 60 and 100Amp inline and panel mount devices all designed with stage, theater and lighting applications in mind. Some of the unique features in our stage-pin offering include:
- Built-in adjustable strain relief
- Simplified wiring
- Ergonomic design
- Durable thermoplastic construction
- Removable Heat resistant sleeves
- Highly secure terminations
- High performance brass contacts
- Ring terminal and double set screw termination options.
Additionally, a single device can accommodate 3 - 6 conductor all in one unit.
These new devices feature a removable sleeve that is highly heat resistant; the heat generated at the connection doesn’t negatively impact device performance.
Designed with super-tough, engineered thermoplastics, the new Stage Pin Devices are lightweight, impact resistant, easy to handle with an ergonomic shape, and simple and convenient to wire with removable contacts that snap into place.
The devices also offer an adjustable strain relief, with the ability to accommodate the widest cable range of any stage pin device while exceeding UL pull out requirements. Because these devices run cooler than the average stage pin device, they provide improved performance and a longer lifespan.
“Until now, traditional stage pin devices have been functional, but remained largely unchanged for decades,” says Roy Itzler, Director of Industrial Marketing for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “By adding this improved device to our full line of solutions for the entertainment industry, Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems continues its tradition of offering safer, more convenient, more durable, and higher performing electrical wiring devices.”
