Leading UK supplier of plastic and metal fasteners, enclosures and components, Anixter Component Solutions, has demonstrated its pedigree in lighting with a new brochure dedicated to meet the demands and increased volume of customers requiring components for industrial lighting applications.

Anixter Components Solutions has seen a significant increase in the number of UK lighting manufacturers that are turning to them for components because of its reliability and service offering.  The new brochure has been launched to provide design engineers and purchasing professionals with an introduction to Anixter Components’ solutions for lighting, and provides an overview of its standard product lines along with information about its additional services.  

The company also offers customers a unique supply chain proposition to cover any requirement.  This includes a wide range of standard products (cable management, protection and fastening applications), a bespoke parts sourcing service for non-standard parts, or a custom design service to adapt an existing part or to develop a unique solution.

Two lighting components in particular are proving to be very popular.  The Click Fit Snap-in Protection Grommet for industrial applications is a revolutionary two-component grommet with cable anchorage, designed to offer many advantages found in a conventional cable gland but at a much-reduced cost.   With the exception of the cable anchorage, the Click-Fit Grommet is compact, self-adjusting to the surrounding wall thickness, has a membrane seal, and is waterproof.

The Click-Fit Grommet is very easy to install saving up to 90% of installation time.  A key feature is that it doesn’t require tools to install, and has a pop-out membrane that is a permanent seal until penetrated by a cable or pipe.  It is available in various sizes, and because of its compact design, it only extends 5.7mm outside the housing on which it is mounted.

Also for industrial lighting applications including machine shops, factories and warehouses, is the Low Profile Snap-In Protection Grommet.  These grommets differ from existing products on the market as they have built-in features including a pop-out membrane to ensure a consistent round opening and IP67, plus a sleeve feature that closes tight around the cable, allowing it to be moved like a joystick without compromising the IP classification.  This means that it works very well with cables passing through at an angle.  These grommets are quick and easy to install, suit cable sizes from 5.0mm to 24.0mm and protect against dust and moisture.  They are available in four sizes – M16, M20, M25 and M32 clearance holes. 

Andrew Fletcher, Technical Director at Anixter Component Solutions, commented:  “Our new catalogue demonstrates to specifiers and engineers our commitment to lighting components, highlighting just how broad our range is, and complements our unique supply chain proposition”. 

Anixter Component Solutions offers a wide and comprehensive range of plastics and metal parts to the lighting industry.  With access to a global supply chain network, Anixter Component Solutions can source any lighting component required, from terminal, indicators and fuses to cable protection, conduit, wire & cable and PCB accessories.
