 Plugs and Sockets

...Safe Connections

The PRE Series, with 16, 32, 63 and 125 A plugs and sockets, is rated as Increased Safety. All sockets incorporate switching technology that prevents removal of the plug under electrical load and does not disturb the potentially explosive atmospheres of Zone 1 and 2 locations. Plugs lock when the power is on. The socket can be padlocked in the “Off” position when the plug is not inserted. The PRD Series is Appleton’s ATX flameproof line of plugs and sockets. Available in multiple pin configurations, 16 and 32 A models are available in aluminum with a load-break disconnect switch. 80 A and 125 A models offer a cast iron wall-mounted socket that is fitted with a load-break isolating switch. Plugs cannot be removed with the power on. Disconnections are completed within single or dual flameproof chambers before the plug is removed from the socket.



PRE Series
 
16A and 32A:
  • Plug and socket assembly is equipped with a patented silver-plated linear switch which allows a total disconnection of power when plug is removed: The high voltage contact separation is in a flameproof chamber and the automatic electrical disconnection of each phase is contained in a second flameproof chamber
  • Short circuit protection is 20 kA, while normal reference is 10 kA
  • Different voltages are color coded for easy identification
  • The sockets are keyed to accept only ATX plugs (other plugs can not be inserted)
  • ATX plugs can be used in non-hazardous sockets
63A and 125A:
  • Positive polarization: only ATX plugs of same style, number of poles and ampere rating may be used with these sockets
  • Interlocked 3-pole or 4-pole Ex de disconnecting on-load switch, with auxiliary early break contact (capacity 2.5 mm2 max)
  • Plug is mechanically locked in socket when switch is ON
  • Switch operating handle can be padlocked in OFF position (max 4 padlocks)
  • Plug cannot be inserted or removed unless switch is in OFF position
