The UTL Power + Control connector series is designed for luminaires and urban lighting systems installed both outdoors and inside buildings. Engineered specifically for LED lighting, it is a harsh environment connector solution that transmits both power and RS-485 data and is ideal for applications involving DMX lighting-control protocol. 

Esterline Connections Technologies- SOURIAU says the UTL Power + Control connector series is UL/IEC certified. The connectors feature six contacts: three for power and three for signals. Optionally, the connectors can be overmoulded to provide customers with turnkey solutions featuring fully integrated harnesses for fast, safe installation.

The solution is simple to use and safe to install. With its ergonomic locking system and push-pull touch latch, it is easy to connect even in hard-to-see and reach locations.
