Woodhead Industries Inc. reports that it has expanded its Brad Harrison family with a new Ultra-Lock connector system, a new series of distribution boxes and cordsets based on an innovative "push-to-lock" operating principle. Users simply push down to connect Ultra-Lock components, and pull up to disconnect them. For assemblers and installers, Ultra-Lock's reportedly unique, non-threaded design provides faster, easier installation than traditional threaded connectors, resulting in greater reliability and productivity, less worker fatigue, and reduced labor costs. The company adds that Ultra-Lock also reduces downtime associated with the variability and uncertainty of threaded terminations, which reduces total operating costs.

Equipped with an IP68-rated radial seal and a patent-pending interlock design, Ultra-Lock also features a contact configuration that is identical to standard M12 connectors. Simple push-to-lock motion eliminates uncertainty associated with threaded connectors, and means installers don't have to wonder if it is tight enough.
