Molex adds 60A connector Woodhead ArcArrest product line.
Molex has added a 60A-rated version to its Woodhead ArcArrest product line of switch-rated connectors. The 60A product is a UL 2682 power connector that combines a plug, receptacle and switch in one device. The connector shields users as the plug maintains a connection with the receptacle during operation. A twisting motion must be applied to remove the plug after the circuit has been interrupted. Rated Type 4X and IP69K, ArcArrest 60A provides line-of-sight motor disconnect as required by the National Electrical Code (NEC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provisions. It also provides visual proof that power has been removed when plug and receptacle are separated and protection from arcing energy as plug connection is maintained during connect/disconnect
