August 1, 2011 - COOPER Crouse-Hinds has delivered the first of three batch deliveries of portable industrial IEC power equipment to 2rent, the largest provider of industrial tools and equipment in The Benelux. The contract with 2rent includes the supply of 155 power converters, 570 extension cords, 230 distribution boards and 765 single plugs, all supplied by COOPER Crouse-Hinds. The project team at COOPER Crouse-Hinds developed a brand new solution for 2rent by using a wide variety of customer specific IEC plugs and receptacles. The industrial portable power converters and industrial cable assemblies are designed for use in non-hazardous, industrial installations, in this particular case, to provide power during shutdown for one of Total’s plants located in Belgium. Juergen Schmitt, Product Manager at COOPER Crouse-Hinds GmbH comments: “Although COOPER Crouse-Hinds is renowned the world over as a specialist provider of electrical components and systems for hazardous area applications, the project with 2rent involves the supply of portable electrical power equipment for non-hazardous areas. This project demonstrates our capabilities in providing custom engineered, portable electrical servicing and maintenance solutions for both hazardous and non-hazardous industrial applications“. For this project, the power converters and cable assemblies supplied by COOPER Crouse-Hinds are protected to IP66, using a 24V DC SELV (Separated Extra Low Voltage) power source and a customer-specific 2-pole design for the plugs according to IEC 60309. The equipment supplied also features integrated RFID tags, enabling the customer to identify equipment remotely, as well as for traceability and inventory control.
