Profits under pressure? Bite back with K9
The patented K9 Kwik Wire connector, available from Hylec-APL, is a fast, simple and safe alternative to traditional cable connectors. Estimated to make regular wiring installations up to 50% quicker, K9 has been designed to help professional electricians and installers improve productivity and, in turn, profitability.
How K9 works
With K9, you simply insert your cable into the opening of the insulation displacement connector cage, then snap it shut to secure the wiring in place. Precision-sharpened connector blades then cut through the insulating sheath, cold welding the wires to the K9’s interior. This creates an IP33 rated dustproof, water-resistant and airtight connection between the wires.
The K9 product range
K9 is available in two shapes and 11 unique models:
The maximum voltage for every K9 product is 600V. The connectors are manufactured in RoHS compliant plastic and feature brass copper connector blades. Weight ranges from 0.5 to 5.7g each.
IDT has been used extensively in the telecommunications, networking, electronics and computing sectors. However, thanks to recent developments enabling multiple stranded wire as well as solid (single stranded) conductors to be used, the benefits of IDT are now available across a growing range of electrical installations including domestic and low voltage industrial, marine and automotive applications.

Handling data in the new industrial revolution
The fast pace at which the Internet of Things (IoT) is moving is opening up a huge necessity for organisations to seriously consider how they handle all this Big Data, which is becoming key for improved manufacturing. Ivor Hunt of Weidmuller UK explores how to manage volume data being generated from field devices, to control systems, and how this creates challenges for the networking infrastructure.
Power without contact
The world of automation continues to innovate and adopt technologies that can have a positive impact on reducing down time and reducing costs. In line with the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, and the Internet of Things (IoT), now we see the development of truly contactless power transmission which can eliminate the need for human intervention for recharging systems, thus creating solutions where critical cleanliness and efficiency are required. The development of intelligent power transmission solutions is just one of the key steps along the road to the smart factory.
