eXLink – the Miniature-Power Connector
eXLink 4-pole/4-pole + PE – 10 A for Zone 1 and Zone 21
Providing flexible power supply and BUS-connection there, where it is needed – even in hazardous areas for the Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.
The eXLink 4-pole/4+1 pole is a complete system for connecting and disconnecting products electrically. Supplying from low voltage BUS signals up to
250 V AC / 10 A electrical power the full range of connectors and receptacles are available with moulded plastic enclosure as well as nickel-plated brass or stainless steel enclosures.
Time code for safety
A time coding, following the IEC 60309 system secures from misconnections of non-compatible voltage levels. Only connectors and plugs with the same voltage level can be plugged together.
The well-known and reliable bonding technique “crimp connection” for wire size of 0.25 mm² up to 0.5 mm², 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 with armouring diameter up to 1.5 mm is available.
The Receptacle and the Inlet are equipped with metric thread M20 x 1.5 or 1/2” 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 downcircuits and without a “hot work permit”!
