Explosion-proof receptacles

By Plant Engineering Staff October 3, 2006

The 7/8-16UN minifast explosion-proof feed-through two to six-wire receptacles provide a safe and efficient way to implement explosion-proof protection in Class I, Division 2 hazardous areas for all industries. The feed-through installs directly in standard conduit entries in explosion-proof enclosures without requiring a poured seal, conduit or extensive wiring. An incorporated minifast quick-disconnect eliminates field terminations and is compatible with the company’s FM approved cordsets.

The feed-through is fully potted with a force-resistant compound tested to 9,000 psi; exceeding FM requirements by 50%. The high-quality, 316 stainless steel housing and keyed connector eliminate incorrect wiring and accommodates standard power in hazardous locations. These connectors provide NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6P and IEC IP67 protection.
