Plugs and connectors for washdown, food and beverage applications
ABB IEC 60309 plugs and connectors are IP69K rated, making the connectors ideal for applications requiring liquid ingress protection such as wash-down operations in food processing plants, dairy farms, and breweries. ABB IEC devices also feature cable strain relief and pullout prevention. Safety measures incorporated into the ABB IEC 60309 connectors include a double cable clamp system to prevent cable detachment and two screws at each terminal to maintain electrical connection. The housing is designed for maximum durability in harsh operating conditions, and is made from a self-extinguishing, ultraviolet (UV)-resistant Valox 357 material. The material is also designed to be resistant to chemicals such as mineral and organic acids, organic solvents and petroleum. Fiberglass-reinforced nylon is used for the contact carrier on devices rated between 60 and 125 amps. A self-cleaning design keeps debris or dirt out of the electrical contacts to reduce down time. ABB IEC pin and sleeve devices are durable and offer safe and reliable electrical connections in industrial settings.
