April 8, 2019 - Power management company Eaton announced a line of color-coded Arrow Hart locking devices for use in commercial and industrial applications. This solution brings the six voltage rating colors from the International Electrical Code (IEC) 60309 standard to locking devices, to clearly identify circuit voltage.
The color-coded locking devices are available in standard National Electrical Manufacturers’ Association (NEMA) configurations for 20 Amp (A) and 30A applications. Each device type, including the plug, connector, inlet, outlet and receptacle, is produced using the color that corresponds to the correct IEC voltage rating. Color coding provides a solution for buildings with multiple circuit voltage ratings and applications, as well as portable equipment where frequent reconfigurations or setups occur.
The devices also offer the many features contractors have counted on in the Arrow Hart line, including an alignment indicator to help orient the plug and connector during installation, locking mechanism, double dove tail cord grip for superior alignment and clamp force for wire retention, and circuit ratings printed on the devices.
