eXLink®- the Miniature-Power Connector
eXLink 7-pole / 6-pole + PE – 16 A for Zone 1 and Zone 22
Providing flexible power supply and signal – connection there, where it is needed – even in hazardous areas for the Zones 1and 2.
The eXLink 7 pole / 6- pole + PE is a complete system for connecting and disconnecting product electrically. Supplying from low voltage BUS signals up to 400 V AC / 16 A electrical power the full range of connectors and receptacles are available with moulded plastic enclosures as well as nickel-plated brass or stainless steel enclosures materials.
Time code for safety
A coding system following to IEC 60309 system secures from misconnections of non-compatible voltage levels. Only connectors and plugs with the same voltage level can be plugged into.
The well-known and reliable bonding technique “crimp connection” for wire size of 0.75 mm² up to 1.5 mm² and optional 2.5 mm² is used for wire connection to the pins. Additionally a screw-less technique “cage clamp” can be used for selected types. A special plug and connector for the use of armoured cable is available.
The Receptacle and the Inlet are equipped with metric thread M25 x 1.5 or 3/4“ NPT thread to screw directly into electrical apparatus. The factory potted metal versions can be used directly into Ex-d enclosures without additionally certification to be applied.
No “Hot Work Permit”
All eXLink plugs, inlets, receptacle and connectors are designed for hot swapping of apparatus in hazardous areas without disconnecting terminals, without shutting down circuits and without a “hot work permit”!
