Appleton Powetite 150-amp explosion-proof plug now available

21 July 2008

The explosion-proof plug and receptacle and the Appleton explosion-proof EBR receptacle are now available in 150-amp versions. The 150-amp solution eliminates the risk of “overdriving,” or drawing excessive current beyond the maximum continuous rating on a piece of equipment.

Other new enhancements include arc-snuffing chambers, multiple grounding styles, and positive polarisation to prevent dangerous matching of dissimilar amperages. The Powertite and EBR are UL Listed, CSA Certified and rated NEMA 4X. They are approved for use in Class 1, Div 1 and 2 hazardous locations.
