Appleton enhances explosion-proof plug and receptacles
This upgrade targets an important but unmeet need to supply power over long runs to industrial equipment rated at approximately 100-amps. The 150-amp solution eliminates the risk of overdriving, or drawing excessive current beyond the maximum continuous rating on a piece of equipment, that can lead to additional service and maintenance expense.
Other new enhancements include arc-snuffing chambers, multiple grounding styles, and positive polarization 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, such as petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, paint and chemical factories, and other areas where ignitable vapors or gases are present.
