Switched interlocked socket range

First Quarter 2020 Other technologies

Powermite’s range of plastic switched interlocked sockets form part of a new series of cutting edge Gen 2 plastic industrial plugs and connectors which are poised to raise the bar for efficiency, versatility and reliability. The Gen 2 plastic range is forged from Polyamide 6 and PC/ABS. These virgin grade plastic materials give the range several important advantages such as impact resistance combined with high robustness; high thermal stability (self-extinguishing); great insulating qualities; high disruptive strength; UV resistance according to ISO 4892-2; and high abrasion and weather resistance. Furthermore, the material delivers exceptional resistance to a variety of chemicals and is free from cadmium and halogen.

Taking a zero compromise approach to quality, the complete Gen 2 plastic range is internationally standardised by the International Electrotechnical Commission, the world organisation for international standardisation of electrical equipment: IEC 60309-1 and IEC 60309-2 equivalent to the European Norms EN 60309 part 1 and EN 60309 part 2, in even the most arduous applications.

The Gen 2 switched interlocked socket series, available from 16 A to 125 A, in 3 to 5 poles, comprises 13 compact plastic models. Electric, mechanical and electromechanical interlocks complete the socket range. The mechanical interlock ensures that after plugging and switching on, the plug is locked and after switching off and unplugging, the switch is locked.

The range is available in IP44 splashproof and IP67 watertight rated versions as well as in nickel plated or brass with lam band contacts. The compact and stable design of these switched interlocked sockets facilitates fitment even in confined spaces.
