Mennekes AM-TOP 16 Amp and 32 Amp IP44 Cable Mount Plugs

From Mennekes, the AM-TOP series of IP44 CEE industrial cable mount plugs are robust, reliable and easy to connect. Featuring open terminal screws all facing in the same direction the AM-TOP series of plugs are terminated quickly in the field. A rugged cable gland at the rear of the plug when tightened grips the cable and seals the gasket at the same time. Integral strain relief prevents cable kinking. Constructed from a heavy-duty Amaplast casing including nickel plated contacts with high heat resistant contact carriers supporting excellent corrosion resistance. Ergonomically designed the AM- TOP 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 virtually unbreakable. The key points are;

• Abrasion resistant
• Self-extinguishing
• Heat resistant
• Resistant to cold temperatures
• Wear resistant
• Good electrical insulation

Environmental Protection – IP Rating

Mennekes AM-TOP 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.

Colour Coding

CEE connectors 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

Features and Benefits

• Rugged construction for added durability.
• Screw terminal connection. Open connection terminals all facing in the same direction enabling rapid wiring.
• Single part body
• Cable gland and sealing. Tightening the cable gland activates the internal cable grip and automatically seals the gasket.
• Integrated cable strain relief, preventing the cable from kinking
• Highly heat resistant contact carrier with nickel plated contacts, supporting corrosion resistance and abrasion.

Applications

• Construction sites: Covered sites and buildings that could be exposed to splashes of water.
• Agriculture: Portable equipment used or stored in sheltered environments.
• Food industry: on indoor equipment subjected to light splashing.
• Entertainment and sports: Sheltered spaces protected from the weather but could be exposed to splashes of water.
• Ship yards and ports: Sheltered repair workshops and dock plant rooms.
• Light Industry: Area’s that are not exposed to Extreme temperatures and humidity.
