Sta-Kon® Push-In Luminaire Disconnect


Thomas & Betts has introduced a new Push-In Luminaire Disconnect that enables electricians to change ballasts safely and easily without having to trip the main power breaker. The Sta-Kon® Luminaire Disconnect is for use in all non-residential fluorescent lighting applications up to 4A, 600V, and complies with 2008 NEC® 410.130(G), CEC 30-308(4) and UL2459.
Installation is as simple as stripping the de-energized wires and inserting them in the housings. The disconnect halves snap together and can be disengaged easily, but the integral latch prevents accidental disengagement. The housings are also designed to eliminate incorrect installation and reverse polarity, and are finger-safe on both sides. The ballast hot-lead wire entry is color-coded in black for easy visibility.


The compact polycarbonate body allows it to fit through 1/2-inch knockouts for easy retrofit. The disconnect accepts #18–12 AWG solid wire, or #14–12 AWG stranded copper up to 19 strands.


Thomas & Betts developed the first UL Listed luminaire disconnect in 2006 in response to the NEC® mandate for increased safety in disconnecting power to fluorescent lighting ballasts.


“The new push-in design provides all the same safety benefits as the original, but now installs even faster and easier,” said Dan Vega, product manager. “Everything about the new product has been designed with the safety and convenience of the electrician or maintenance person uppermost in mind.“
