Power Devices Stand Up to Mother Nature

May 1, 2012

Ship-to-shore power devices are subjected to heat, cold, rain, snow or corrosive salt spray. 

 

Hubbell Marine offers a high-quality line of 100 amp pin and sleeve plugs, connector bodies and components designed to withstand damaging marine conditions.

 

Hubbell Marine's shore power inlets use a spring-loaded, gasketed cover that automatically closes when not in use, creating a weatherproof seal.  Locking the cover makes it watertight.  Inside, nickel-plated, solid brass pins ensure a reliable electrical contact.  A high-impact thermoset contact carrier is resistant to arcing and overheating to enhance safety.  Terminals are clearly marked for simple installation.

 

Rugged connector bodies are made from Zytel, a super-tough nylon, and can be attached to cords from 1" to 1.94".  Various models connect to shore power inlets, extension cords or adapters.  A gasketed locking ring ensures watertight connections.  Large external cable grips protect wiring from conductor movement and resulting terminal strain.  Compatible with existing cables, they simplify replacement of worn-out fittings.
