Intermatic Introduces New Low-Profile Shorting Cap and Open Cap Solutions

Updated SK4500K and OK4500R Designs Combine Durability with Style


Intermatic Incorporated today announced its new low-profile Shorting Cap (SK4500K) and Open Cap (OK4500R) solutions, two locking-type plug connectors that protect outdoor fixtures and help drive photocontrol ON/OFF patterns in multi-fixture installations.


The ANSI C136.10 compliant solutions combine best-in-class manufacturing, a slim design and dependable functionality to deliver long-term value to end-users.


“With the rise of photocontrol installations, municipalities, utilities, commercial businesses and building owners need a simple, cost-effective way to manage and protect their outdoor lighting fixtures,” says Jimmy Adjunta, segment marketing manager at Intermatic. “Our new low-profile shorting and open cap solutions address this need without sacrificing aesthetics.”


Available in single (SK4500K/OK4500R) and 50-unit bulk (SK4500KJ/OK4500RJ) quantities, the new shorting and open caps are ideal for roadway lighting, security lighting, outdoor park lighting and exterior lighting projects of all types and sizes. Both solutions include a 2-year warranty.


“Our new SK4500K Shorting Cap installs quickly on fixtures with photocontrol receptacles, allowing them to be controlled by a central contactor box or lighting control panel,” adds Adjunta. “Similarly, the OK4500R Open Cap makes it easy for contractors to temporarily take a light fixture out of service (turned OFF) while protecting the receptacle from harmful weather conditions and leaving other lights in the same circuit energized.”
