such as light fixtures, HEPA
fan filter units, and pressure
gauges are integral to maintaining the functionality and
performance of a cleanroom.
Traditionally, hard wiring
these units is a labor-inten-sive process that requires
extensive involvement from
a certified electrician. This
process ultimately extends
the enclosure installation
time frame and adds to the
overall labor cost.
Solution: : Simplex
Isolation Systems’ convenient
“Twist-Lock” electrical wiring
package allows the installer to complete most of
the electrical connections within the enclosure,
minimizing the time and cost of an electrician.
Any new SIS-797, SIS-212 or AirLock enclosure can
take advantage of the new “Twist-Lock” package,
significantly reducing the amount of time required
to install electrical components. Unlike traditional hard wiring methods, Simplex’s “Twist-Lock”
pre-engineered package can be quickly and easily
locked together by the enclosure installers as the
enclosure is constructed — requiring an electrician
only for the final service connection.
The benefits of modular electrical wiring over
traditional hard wiring methods are far reaching:
• Custom-built: “Twist-Lock” design allows for total
flexibility of component layout
• Greater versatility: all wiring can be reconfigured
and reused if a change to the enclosure is made.
• Added convenience: ability to complete the
electrical connections while the enclosure is
• Installation time: the “Twist-Lock” electrical
wiring package from Simplex reduces the total
installation time and labor cost.
• Faster utilization: Allows for quicker utilization of
electrical package is available for components such
as lights, HEPA filters, and
electrical outlets. All switches, outlet boxes, and wiring
fit neatly into Simplex’s
standard framing system for
a clean, professional look.
All wiring is brought to a
convenient distribution box
atop the enclosure where
an electrician can finish the
installation by connecting
the single point connection
to a power source.
The package includes
which inherently offer more
reliable connections than other modular connec-
tors. This simple connection technology helps to
eliminate installation errors. Enclosure installers
would simply connect the female and male con-
nectors together and twist to lock the connection
securely in place.
All wiring is 20 amp/125V, hard service, thermoplastic and weather resistant. From a reliability
standpoint, all components are factory tested and
comply with UL 183 and the National Electrical
Code (NEC) 604.
The electrical package is 100 percent customiz-able to meet the needs of the enclosure’s application. Factors such as equipment placement, counter heights, and voltage requirements are all taken
into consideration and accommodated for when
designing electrical outlet or switch placement.
Custom electrical components are also available in
the package, such as 3-way modular switching—a
configuration ideal for larger cleanrooms that
includes switches for multiple points of entry—and
plenum-rated cabling—flame-retardant cabling
required for cleanrooms with plenum spaces.
