Mennekes PowerTOP Plus 63 Amp and 125 Amp IP67 Cable Mount Connectors

From Mennekes, the PowerTOP Plus series of IP67 watertight industrial power connectors are robust, reliable and easy to connect. Secure socket contacts ensuring smooth insertion and disconnection through SoftCONTACT for 63 Amp versions and TorsionSpringCONTACT for 125 Amp versions. A spring loaded hinged lid opens easily by sliding the integrated opening mechanism on the connector. Moulded seals in the inner rim of the lid ensure the PowerTOP Plus connectors are fully sealed to IP67 when mated. A rugged cable gland at the rear of the industrial power connector with integrated strain relief prevents cable kinking. Constructed from a tough Amaplast casing, including nickel plated contacts and heat resistant contact carriers supporting excellent corrosion resistance. Ergonomically designed for a slip-proof grip the PowerTOP Plus series of BS4343 industrial power connectors perform exceptionally well in the most demanding environments.

What is Amaplast?

Amaplast is a superior quality, industrial 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 PowerTOP plus IP67 water tight industrial power connectors 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 Power 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

• Fully sealed to IP67 when mated
• Moulded seal in the inner rim of the lid
