The IDEAL SLK® Disconnect Fuse Kit is a waterproof breakaway safety device that de-energizes roadway lights, streetlights, parking lot lights, and other freestanding electrical fixtures in the event of a knockdown, or when the fixtures need maintenance. This helps protect first responders, bystanders, and service personnel from potentially life-threatening electrical shock hazards.
The SLK® is the first Disconnect Fuse Kit listed to UL’s ECIS category for special purpose connectors. This new category contains a set of rigorous tests from a host of UL standards, including UL 486D, the standard for submersibility. This means that the SLK® will stand up to the wet conditions often seen in and around pole bases, junction boxes and hand holes.
In addition, the bright orange color of the SLK® makes the product easy to locate in dark junction boxes, in hand holes or in a nighttime knockdown situation, when the connector is often buried amongst dirt, mud and debris.
