    Tasseron QuickConnect sensors

    anyone using these sensors? Is the quick connect terminal as nice as it sounds?
    I can certainly use a way to have my guys test the end devices quicker vs unwrapping wire nuts or redoing splices.
    thx.

    Yes and yes they are. They've been OEM boiler manuf. for years (lochinvar) as a thermistor supplier. Personally I think their pricing is really good in a market that is often overlooked by a lot of us, but the little added touches are nice. Like the syringe of thermal paste with every immersion sensor and the little leveling bubble in their wall sensors. We started buying them about a year ago and have yet to have a single one go bad.

    We use them as well.
    Had a problem on a site where a whole batch labeled as 20Kohm actually had 1Kohm probes. Interns messed up the production. So we had to replace them all.

    It was a one time issue, other than that they've been great.
    I'm all for abolishing wire nuts, especially if they're orange.

    Used them on and off for the past 5 years. I actually like them a lot but currently we buy our sensors from our DDC supplier when we buy the controllers. I know ALPS carry them and the factory will sell direct (at least here in the US).

    If you hate wirenuts, embrace the levernut. It's all I use for controller and end device power. Still using wirenuts on two wires, but anything more than that is a levernut.

    Thanks guys.

    Levernut is nice but I find that I get some push back when I force my electrical subs to use them, something built into the sensor would be more ideal for me

    As stated I only use them for power. Their "your" subs you don't get pushback from them unless you let them. Set standards and enforce them. We sub all our install.
