Appleton Tray Cable Connectors Provide Simple Installation & Reliable Protection
Industrial-grade tray cable connectors add value by accepting wider range of electrical cable types
ROSEMONT, IL - Appleton, one of the world's largest manufacturers of products for hazardous location electrical systems, now offers a versatile line of tray cable connectors engineered for use with TC, ITC, PLTC and other commonly-used types of tray cable.
