Wire Protectors

| April 07, 2005

Phillips has three transparent wire-protection products available in its new and improved, field-tested Clear-Vu line.

The Clear-Vu junction box is designed to easily accommodate ABS and ISO cables in a durable, transparent housing. Any sign of corrosion can be easily detected and dealt with before it becomes a downtime problem. Cable pass-throughs are grommet-protected, adding an additional level of corrosion resistance and the termination points are stainless steel.

The Clear-Vu battery cable is a rope-stranded cable that has a durable, flexible, transparent coating. The cable is available in five gauges, from 6 to 2/0.

Phillips’ Clear-Vu shrink tubing is an abrasion-resistant, shrink-tube wire covering. The product, available in clear and three colors, permits a visual check for corrosion and wire integrity. The tubing is available in 6-inch lengths that provide visible protection for wires of 22 to 1 gauge.
