Rugged Components for Shore Power

Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

July 23, 2012

Electrical shore power devices are susceptible to nature's ravages, creating potentially unsafe situations.


Hubbell Marine's 50 amp Twist-Lock® shore power products are uniquely designed and built to deliver power, even in the harshest of conditions.  They utilize rugged components such as a heat-resistant thermoset interior and robust cord clamp for superior strain relief.  The company's 50 amp offering of inlets, plugs and connector bodies will stand up to whatever the weather dishes out. To seal out the elements, Hubbell Marine's 50 amp inlets employ a gasketed cover that closes when not in use.  The nickel-plated contacts won't corrode and ensure a reliable electrical termination.  A thermoset contact carrier prevents possible arcing and overheating, enhancing the products' safety and life expectancy.

Hubbell Marine's 50 amp plug and connector body replacement fittings use superior box-lug style terminations and a metal cord clamp for a secure and reliable connection.  Compatible with existing cables, they simplify replacement of fittings. Hubbell Marine's 50 amp devices come in 125 and 125/250 volt versions.  Inlets and receptacles boxes, closure caps and replacement parts are also available.  They meet USCG requirements, are UL Listed and have ABYC approval.
