Plugs, sockets and connectors for harsh and heavy industrial environments

29 November 2012

Cooper Crouse-Hinds has launched the GHG 52 series of industrial plugs and receptacles, which are suitable for harsh and heavy industrial environments, including marine and shipbuilding, mining and quarrying, metal processing, oil & gas, transportation, and renewable energy applications.

The GHG 52 series includes plugs, couplers, wall sockets (with or without interlocking switch) and flange sockets, available for both international (series 1) and North American (series 2) markets.

The GHG 52 series 1 offers a broad range of plugs and receptacles, from 16A up to 125A. Series 1 plugs and receptacles are available in 16A (3, 4 and 5-pole) up to 415V, 32A (4 and 5-pole) up to 415V, 63A (4 and 5-pole) up to 690V, and 125A (4 and 5-pole) up to 690V. All plugs and receptacles are manufactured to IEC 60309-1/2 standards and operate in ambient temperatures from -20 deg C to +40 deg C. All GHG 52 series plugs and receptacles are protected to IP66, even in their plugged-in state.

The GHG 52 series provides a variety of technical benefits, including high impact resistance, high durability and resistance to chemicals including UV resistance & antistatic features. Plugs are available with self-cleaning, multi-lamella contact designs with low transition resistance.

GHG 52 wall sockets with interlock switch offer high impact resistance (IK 10 Level based on IEC 62262) and are protected by a glass fibre-reinforced polyester housing. Plugs and couplers are made from glass fibre strengthened polyamide. Another feature of the series is its low engaging forces.

A variety of mounting accessories including plates, plug caps and protective canopies are also available to enable units to be fixed to walls, pipes and trellises.

As well as the standard product range, custom engineered plugs and receptacles are also available on request, including extended temperature and voltage ranges, as well as plugs with nickel-plated brass pins.
