Welcome to the new range of Twister cable connectors, a great alternative and also cheaper than a terminal connector block. The new range consists of 7 different cable connectors for both solid and stranded cable. To enable a guaranteed safe connection between two cables, just insert two cables and twist the connector. This works great because there is no need for any tools.
There are two different types of twister connector. There is a standard variant which is used indoors and also a weatherproof version which is IP55 rated. The weatherproof version is pre-filled with silicone sealant to protect against corrosion and moisture. This means it can be used both indoors and outdoors. The IP55 rated cable connectors could be an ideal money saving solution because due to the weatherproof status, there is no need for expensive IP rated enclosures to house the connector.
The technology for the cable connector is actually quite simple. There are just two components of the connector which are the expanding square spring and the polypropylene shell. Once the cables are inserted, the twisting effect enables the square spring to grip the conductors and twists them together hence the name 'Twister'. This enables the connector to produce a guaranteed safe and secure connection which stays strong over a period of time.
This design of connector has in fact been around for a number of years and was commonly known as 'Scruits'. The older designs used an old style ceramic material but where effectively written out and banned due to more strict regulation requirements. The new Twister cable connector makes a big comeback and conforms to all regulations and tests due to the new design. The new connector is manufactured from a high quality and robust material which is polypropylene. This material will not split or crack, like the older ceramic versions.
Overall the Twister cable connector is a great product and solution for everyday applications where a safe connection between two cables is needed. In the future I do predict that this product could become very popular and be used in most households. The simplicity of the design and ease of use means that anyone can use these connectors for jobs around their home. Also these connectors could be used in building projects and dramatically reduce installation times than using other connectors. In essence the cable connectors can and will be a success in time to come.
