Hubbell Marine says rugged 50 amp Twist-Lock shore power devices deliver in harsh weather
- By WorkBoat
They utilize rugged components such as a heat-resistant thermoset interior and robust cord clamp that enhance strain relief. The company says its 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, the company says.
Hubbell Marine's 50 amp plug and connector body replacement fittings also feature box-lug style terminations and a metal cord clamp for a secure and reliable connection. Compatible with existing cables, Hubbell Marine says, 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.
