Hubbell Introduces Advantage™ Series Switch-Rated Pin & Sleeve Devices
February 17 2015
Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems has combined the advantages of their top performing IEC pin & sleeve with the capabilities of a UL2682 switch-rated device. Hubbell’s standard industrial pin and sleeve is HP rated and recognized as a disconnecting means. However, the new Advantage Series is for customers that are interested in more. More advantages are what Hubbell has brought to the switch-rated market place establishing new benchmarks in performance and innovation.
More Flexibility - The Advantage™ Series are the only Switch-Rated IEC Pin & Sleeve Devices in the market. By working with existing installed IEC 60309-2 pin and sleeve plug and inlet bases customers save both time and money.
More Switching Capabilities - The Advantage™ Series are approved as a disconnecting means for both motor circuits and branch circuits. They carry a robust 100kA SCCR rating along with a 20 HP rating at 480V.
More Water Ingress Protection – The Advantage™ Series are UL witnesses IP69K and UL Type 4X and 12 devices. They are designed for use in harsh environments, the devices offer protection against water and dust – even during times of high water flow or in areas with excessive amounts of dust. The devices’ sleek, modern design makes them easy to keep clean if washdown is necessary. Product ratings are laser-marked into the device for permanent identification that won’t wash off.
More Advantages - Visual verification of power to the device is provided with highly visible, long-lasting green LEDs on both sides.
An impact-resistant internal swing arm is fully shrouded, protecting it from any potential damage. The robust, durable housing is UV-stabilized, impact- and corrosion-resistant, and designed to withstand industrial environments.
An oversized, spring-loaded disconnect button offers easy actuation – even with gloved hands. Heavy-duty external cord grips offer maximum cord retention to maintain unstressed terminations.
