Duraline Introduces Roadway Lighting Break-Away Systems
Duraline®, a leading manufacturer of lighting streamers and other electrical power distribution systems for over 50 years, announces the introduction of their MG2 roadway lighting breakaway system, which is IP68 to provide complete protection against dust and allow for continuous submersion in up to 6' of water when it is capped or mated. The MG2 system consists of a molded distribution block, a fused pole plug with waterproof replaceable fuses, and a surge arrester. Engineered to provide unparalleled safety, the MG2 is designed so that the pole cable will disconnect if the pole is knocked over, leaving the female plug above the ground. Duraline's design helps to eliminate fires, electrocution, damaged splices in adjacent poles, and exposed wires, all of which can delay activities and cause serious injury. The MG2 meets AASHTO's new break-away wiring requirements. Duraline, a division of J.B.
