Iec Connector Family 56e33ad626c29

ABB IEC 60309 plugs and connectors are now IP69K rated, which is the highest dust and liquid ingress rating attainable, making the connectors ideal for liquid ingress protection. Features include:

  • The devices were placed on a turntable at a speed of approximately five RPM, sprayed at close range at a rate of four gallons per minute with water pressure between 1,160 and 1,450 pounds psi, at a temperature of 176 degrees Fahrenheit (80 degrees Celsius).
  • Safety measures include a double cable clamp system to prevent cable detachment and two screws at each terminal to maintain electrical connection.
  • The housing is made from a self-extinguishing (UL 94V0), ultraviolet (UV)-resistant (UL 746 F1) Valoxยฎ 357 material. The material is also highly resistant to chemicals like mineral and organic acids, organic solvents and petroleum.
  • Fiberglass-reinforced nylon is used for the contact carrier on devices rated between 60 and 125 amps.
  • A self-cleaning design keeps debris or dirt out of the electrical contacts to reduce down time.
