Added frame sizes (10A, 16A, and 32) are made of heavy-duty metal or thermoplastic housings. Connector hoods are available with top entry and side entry cable passages and feature Pg threaded cable passages.
ZIPport multi-wire connectors accessories include additional IP66 and IP68 cable glands, Pg to NPT adapters and blanking plugs. Insert plates are available in blank, reducer, and cutout styles.
New code pins kits are available for applications where identical connectors could be coupled with the incorrect mate, potentially causing equipment damage or breakdown; gold-plated crimp contacts in 10 and 16 Amp sizes have also been added.
