Citylink Soundtube lit up by Switches Plus Components

The soundtube on the Tullamarine freeway was recently upgraded with an amazing light show! Energy efficient LEDs have been installed, using many kms of cable, and thousands of inline IP68 cable joiners. Keystone cable from Switches Plus, was chosen, due to its excellent UV resistant properties. Techno IP68 cable joiners, manufactured in Italy, were also used to speed up installation time, and to provide a compact weather resistant junction that will last for years.

Landscaping, irrigation, lighting, pumping, and signage applications are some of the toughest tests for electrical connectors. Often subjected to freezing temperatures, direct sunlight, heavy rain, and even full submersion in water or buried underground, the connectors need to protect wiring year round with no requirement for maintenance or repair.

The Tee range of waterproof products from Techno are ideally suited to a wide range of applications. They are re-useable, as they do not require gel, and can accommodate a wide range of cable sizes.

Flexible control cables, have traditionally been constructed with black conductors, and grey sheathing materials, this leads to problems reading the core number, and offers little, or no UV resistance. In response to customer feedback, we decided it’s time for a change!

Developed with leading Singapore cable manufacturer, Keystone Cable, our range of Flexible Control cables, feature a black outer sheath, providing maximum UV resistance. White insulation, with high contrast black numbers, make identifying the conductor much easier, particularly in low light conditions, such as those experienced inside control cabinets, and machines. We have also placed the numbers at approx. 25mm intervals, rather than the traditional 100-200mm spacing, this means you don’t need to strip as much outer sheath to identify the cores.

Other features of these cables include; oil and flame resistant PVC materials, class 5 flexible copper conductors, and a bending radius as small as 4x the cable diameter! Metre marking, high flexibility, UV resistance, and a temperature range of -40ºC to +80ºC, makes this cable, an impressive all-rounder, suitable for a multitude of applications!
