Modular Wiring Solutions - Key Components

It's important to understand what the main components within a modular wiring system are, and what they do. Once you know, you'll soon realise how quick and easy it is to set up and use.


Male and Female: Know the Difference

One of the first and most important things to understand is the interlocking male and female connectors.

Male Connector

A male connector has solid metal pins. This always receives the power from the corresponding female.

Male Connector

Female Connector

A female connector has split hollow pins. The power is always fed from a female pin (as used on all CP Electronics Lighting Control Modules) as these are fully shrouded to prevent electric shock.

Tee Modules

The new range of 6 pole tee modules allows simple interlinking of cables between a lighting control module and a group of luminaires. Each luminaire will require a tee module.

Extender Leads

To link each tee module, an interlink or 'extender lead' is required to fit between the modules. These can then be installed on cable basket or tray (as shown) or mounted using the fixing tabs on the tee module using suitable cable ties.
