By Alyssa Dalton
June 30, 2011- Meltric Corp., a manufacturer of industrial duty electrical plugs and receptacles, has launched a product line for electrical equipment powered by direct currents. According to the company, the DSDC Series plugs and receptacles provide safer and more robust connections for direct current applications up to 200 amps at 250VDC, up to 100 amps at 600 VDC, or up to 30 amps at 750 VDC. The line offers safety features including a dead-front safety shutter that prevents user access to live parts and a padlockable pawl that “enables easy locking in the connected or disconnected mode,” it claims.
