Key Specifications

  • No stripping of wires: The connector utilizes the proven 3M “Insulation Displacement Connector” method whereby a copper element cuts through the sides of the wire insulation and applies inward pressure to the copper conductor. This makes a secure, reliable connection.
  • A waterproof gel: protects the electrical connection from moisture and water. For above ground installation, or in a valve box.
  • Quick and easy to use: Simply slide the un-stripped wires inside the connector ports and push the black lid down using a pair of long-handled pliers. The MGC has a soft gray boot that stays tightly around the wire as it is inserted into the connector to keep the gel inside.
  • The insulation does not shrink back: During the installation process, wire is sometimes stretched. When the wire is cut, the insulation slowly shrinks back. Because the copper blades of IDC’s only cut the sides of the insulation, it is held inside the gel-filled connector.
  • The wire range: ideal for residences, commercial and industrial projects. The two outer ports are used for Irrigation wire or Low Voltage Landscape Lighting cable.
