New class 1, division 2 approved heat trace connector for process and oil industry from Weidmuller
Markham Ontario's Weidmuller has announced a new and innovative Heat Trace Connector for use in oil industry and process applications.
Weidmuller’s Heat Trace Connectors are designed for easy one-man installation, onsite, under all types of conditions. The coaxial design allows for complete 360Â° connection and eliminates alignment or rotational issues during installation. A lever locking mechanism located on the connector exterior guarantees a secure fit as well as superior holding power. The innovative coil spring contact provides for a highly reliable connection, and reduces the chance of contact destruction if the connector is disconnected while under load. The only tool needed to install Weidmuller’s Heat Trace Connectors is a standard flat blade screwdriver.
These new connectors are available in a two-pole version with an integrated ground, and are rated at 35A, 600 VAC. The robust housing is made from a lightweight aluminum alloy with a protective tin-plating. These new connectors are IP67 rated and have Class 1 Division 2 and CSA approvals.
