Phillips Industries has launched a "connection education" initiative aimed at providing distributors and fleet operators with a wide variety of tools that will help their electric wiring get better connected.
"Some people still connect wires by winding them together and wrapping a piece of electrical tape around them," said Bill Phillips, the company's director of sales. "The problem often isn't detected until 6-12 months later, when the connection fails. We want people to have the information they need to do it once and do it right."
Illustrated wall charts, counter mats, literature and examples of properly and improperly connected wires are now available. These aids show the many kinds of wire connectors available and proper installation tips.
