Industrial plugs and sockets for safety and toughness

Amphenol distributor Inelco Hunter has announced the availability of Amphenol’s Industrial range of plugs and sockets, which combine toughness with ease of use and safety-critical features.

‘Easy & Safe’ is a range of IP67 and IP44 plugs, connectors, and socket outlets/inlets. They are reliable, safe, and easy to work with, providing water and dust protection to the self-cleaning contacts. This feature prolongs the plug and socket lifetimes whilst minimising the risk of accidents, injuries, and damage to the connected equipment.

‘Tough & Safe’ is a range designed for environments that have high demands of functionality and safety. They feature robust housings made from PBT plastic. They are IP67 Watertight (16-125A) or IP44 Splashproof (63A). The plugs and sockets are rated at 16-125 A, 50-690 VAC. All of the external screws are made from stainless steel.

‘Critical & Safe’ is a range designed for applications with frequent connection/disconnection. The housings are made from PBT or aluminium. They are IP67 Watertight or IP44 Splashproof with a rating of 16-125A, 50-690 VAC. Again, all of the external screws are stainless steel.

Common to all three ranges, the IP67 cable glands provide excellent strain relief and sealing performance. The glands work with a large span of cable diameters and can be re-used.

Inelco Hunter’s in-depth engineering support ensures rapid implementation, speeding up the customer’s time-to-market. Inelco Hunter’s engineers will work with the SME engineers. This added-value support is at the core of Inelco Hunter’s philosophy, and has been for the last 30 years.
