Defining the requirements of unique distribution units
Andrew Whyatt, Electrical Engineering Manager with CEENorm U.K. Ltd, considers the characteristics that need defining when asked to design a custom built socket distribution system.
|Connection Technology||Screw Terminal|
|H Position||no minor keyway|
16A, 230V, 3P, IP44, no minor keyway with screw terminals
Enclosure made of Polyamide
The contact carrier is made of polyamide, the contacts are brass nickel plated
Multi-Grip cable gland with gasket and integrated strain relief
With a maximum conductor size of 2,5 mm²
Made with BALS “Multi-Grip” cable gland which features a rubber seal which is firmly molded on so that it facilitates connection. This means no additional seals and rings are required. The 18 flexible laminae adapt to the cable diameter. The Multi-Grip screw connection achieves a high tensile strength whilst simultaneously protecting the cable.
Connection Technology: Screw Terminal
- High self-cleaning effect when the plug pin is inserted and removed reduces the risk of soiling and therefore failure of the plug and socket
- Terminals accept all types of conductors without problem
