Appleton PowerTite solutions suitable for wet, corrosive areas
By Anthony Capkun
February 5, 2021 – Emerson’s Appleton Powertite Series of pin-and-sleeve plugs, receptacles and connectors are available in 30A, 60A, 100A, 200A and 400A units to supply power to all types of heavy-duty electrical equipment—fixed or portable—including welders, pumps, compressors, motor generators and power transfer switch cabinets.
With a NEMA 4X rating, these weatherproof products are suitable for wet, corrosive areas, such as loading docks and ports, sewage pump and lift stations, etc.
To keep operations going and electricians safe while installing and servicing Powertite units, Appleton has incorporated features such as energized contacts that are deeply recessed inside the terminal block, and positive polarization so that only plugs and receptacles of the same style, number of poles, and amperage can be used together.
