Emerson Upgrades Appleton Industrial Power Connectors
January 23, 2020
The power connection solutions are designed to excel in wet, corrosive area
Emerson has enhanced their Appleton 200-Amp Powertite series of pin-and-sleeve plugs, receptacles, and connectors with features providing faster and easier field assembly, greater environmental protection, and improved worker safety. The power connection solutions are designed to excel in wet, corrosive areas such as shipping docks and ports, land-based drilling rigs, sewage pump and lift stations, backup power generation, and cellular relay stations.
With the upgrade, the Appleton 200 Amp Powertite series now boasts the fastest field-assembly time in the industry. It reduces complexity by limiting the total number of components requiring interaction, cutting assembly time and decreasing the number of hand tools needed for both installation and field maintenance. To meet OSHA lockout and tagout requirements, Appleton 200 Amp Powertite plugs now have a lockout provision on the plug sleeve, where a locking mechanism can be installed by using the plug lockout lanyard accessory.
