NHP Electrical Engineering Products (NHP) has announced that it has secured the sole distributing rights of the Proconect brand of plugs and sockets for the Australia and New Zealand market, effective from November 2007.
Proconect is a manufacturer of industrial plugs and sockets for the mining, food processing, commercial, rail and marine industries.
The 3PS isolating plugs from Proconect are available in five sizes: 16 A, 32 A, 63 A, 125 A and 200 A. The benefits of an isolating plug is that it eliminates the need for a switch and ensures that power is available where and when it is required with complete safety to the operator. The socket outlet and appliance inlet are interlocked and then switched when engaged, making the connection and disconnection under load, safe and reliable.
The connector also discriminates so connection of the same voltage, amperage and number of poles can only be mated, making the 3PS isolating plugs the complete answer for industrial safety, without the need for specialised personnel when operating portable tools and equipment.
