EyeCap provides the first line of defense for fire prevention for cable lugs ana terminals connection through the temperature sensitive color changing cap. Not only is it fire retardant it also provides electrical insulation and prevents electrical arcs.
The colored top of the cap starts to change its color, fading to white around 60°C and turns completely to white around 70°C.
The cap is made from UL94-V-0 and is fire retardant. So even if there is a fire, our cap will quickly prevent the fire from spreading.
The body of each EyeCap Is labeled with their size and their transparency allows you to check the status of the terminal.
You only need a glance. Do NOT need any temperature detecting equipment.
Fire Retardant Electrical Insulating Electrical Arc Preventing Temperature Sensitive - Color Changing Cap
Why do we need EyeCap?
The problem with excessive heat generation occurs when the heat from the electrical connections starts to exceed 80°C.
At that point, the PVC surrounding the electrical wires begins to degrade and creates gas. Furthermore, the heat buildup will create smoke at the connecting point between the electric wire and the lugs or terminals.
As the heat passes the ignition point, the electrical wire terminal will begin to create electric arcs which will eventually cause a fire. (Normal PVC electrical wires' ignition point is between 250~400°C.)
How does it prevent fires?
The Cap allows you to prevent electrical fire and to confirm completion of electrical wire connections with nothing but a glance.
This cap is made of temperature sensitive material and its color will fade to white when the temperature reaches 60°C. When the temperature drops below that point, the color will return.
Because of the ease of detection, workers, supervisors, inspectors, and others can quickly take necessary actions to respond in case of imminent danger.
Color coded caps help workers to classify electric wires without the need of labels.
