We also have a touch-sensitive, waterproof LED light and covers for our fused battery terminal clamps.

We've extended our range of crimp terminals and connectors this month to include these adhesive-lined heat shrink versions. The terminals are first crimped over the cable and then the insulation is shrunk with a heat gun or torch until the adhesive lining melts and flows throughout, providing the dual-benefit of a long-lasting environmental seal and excellent strain relief for the cable.

These terminals have passed rigorous tests for sealing and pull-off loadings and are superior to standard pre-insulated terminals, making them them the 1st choice for use in demanding environments such as marine or external vehicle wiring applications.

This brand new surface-mounted LED ceiling light is suitable for both internal and external use thanks to its IP67 rated waterproof housing and convenient touch sensitive ON/OFF switch.  The body is a sleek aluminium extrusion that has been anodised for corrosion protection and is finished with black end caps. The high intensity cool white light output of  320 lumens (approximately equivalent to a 25W halogen bulb) is achieved by using 32 surface mounted LEDs and the light comes complete with sealed flying leads and stainless fixings. At only 21mm high this low profile light is ideal for any commercial, marine or leisure application where it might be exposed to moisture (e.g. awning light, external mounting on a vehicle etc.).
