Ergonomically designed, with a smooth slip proof grip the PowerTOP series of industrial BS4343 plugs perform exceptionally well in the most demanding environments.
What is Amaplast?
Amaplast is a superior quality, toughened thermoplastic material with excellent characteristics. Making them unbreakable. The key points are;
Resistant to cold temperatures
Good electrical insulation
Environmental Protection – IP Rating
Mennekes PowerTOP industrial plugs are designed in accordance with BS EN 60529. The IP rating is composed of two numbers. The first number refers to protection from solid matter, the second number for protection against liquids. The higher the number the better the protection. See technical datasheets for full definitions.
CEE Plugs have an industry standard colour coding in compliance with BS EN 60309-2 / BS4343 and IEC 309 Colour coding refers to a connectors rated voltage.
Violet, 20 V to 25 V
White, 40 V to 50 V
Yellow, 100 V to 130 V
Blue, 200 V to 250 V
Red. 380 V to 480 V
Black, 500 V to 1000 V

Plugs, sockets, appliance inlets and interlocked sockets conforming to the latest requirements of British and European standards. The insulator outer casing and interiors are manufactured from Amaplast (nylon 6) 16/32A, Amelan 63 / 125A for excellent mechanical performance. This material provides good electrical insulation and will meet the requirements of most industrial environments.
Contact tubes and pins are made of brass. To prevent incorrect connection, the earth contact is in a different position, relative to the safety key way on each socket outlet, for each voltage. All types are colour coded by voltage and are suitable for 50/60Hz operation.
Products are type tested to VDE.
