IDEAL Disconnect Fuse Kit safeguards pedestrians from downed streetlights

While streetlights provide safety to pedestrians and drivers alike, they also pose an unexpected danger. In the event of a knockdown, their electrical system can become exposed, endangering bystanders with potentially life-threatening shock hazards.

IDEAL Disconnect Fuse Kit safeguards pedestrians from downed streetlights

To combat this problem, IDEAL has introduced its SLK Disconnect Fuse Kit, a waterproof breakaway safety device that de-energises roadway lights, streetlights and electrical vehicle charging stations in the event of a knockdown, as well as protect service personnel who are performing maintenance. The fuse stays on the de-energised load side when separated, therefore protecting those nearby from the danger of shock.

The SLK is the first Disconnect Fuse Kit listed to UL's ECIS category for special purpose connectors. This new category contains tests from a host of UL standards, including the standard for submersibility.
