To protect against arcing, the device features spring-loaded demating technology inside an enclosed arc chamber, as well as mating and demating shutters to shield users from live parts. This design allows users to safely connect and disconnect the devices under load, providing quick change-outs. For additional safety, these connectors will mate only with their designated connector class, and demate and break load by the push of a button directly on the connector. Each connector is switch and horsepower rated, so one device can be used as both a connector and disconnect switch. This streamlines operations by removing the need for a separate disconnect switch in applications that require a line-of-sight disconnect. In addition, the connector can also be used as a lockout/tagout device. The connectors are IP66 and IP67 rated and are available in 20-, 30- and 60-amp versions, which include variations with auxiliary contacts. The offering has standard connectors that carry UL, CSA and IEC listings, and is also available with connectors that carry hazardous location approvals. The hazardous location connectors are rated to ATEX Category 2 for gases and dust, and IECEx zone 1, and also carry CSA Class I, Division 2 and Class II, Division 2 as well as CSA Class I Zone 1 and Class II Zone 21 (for US and Canada).
