High Temperature European Plugs, High Temperature Band Heater Plugs, High Temperature Connectors, High Temperature Ring, Spade & Butt Terminals
High temperature Europen plugs and connectors come in various sizes, pin configurations and temperature ranges. We offer several available DIN standards. DIN stands for "Deutsches Institut für Normung", meaning "German Institute for Standardisation". DIN 49490 connectors for example are two pole with 3 wire grounding, available in 16 Amp, 250 Volt AC or 10 Amps 250V DC units. Some European plugs/connectors in this category are rated up to 25 Amps, 380 Volts AC with temperature ranges up to 300° C. Both male and female connectors are available in this standard. In addition, straight and 90° configurations are available. Several terminal base and shell types with compression cord grip are available. Some have metal, silicone rubber or plastic shells/housing. Terminal bases are available in silicone rubber, porcelain or plastic.
DIN 49458 A/B CEE connectors are two pole with 3 wire grounding, available in 16 Amp, 250 Volt and rated to 200°C units. These European connectors have flat 3 metal pins or terminals that are horizontally orientated. Both male and female connectors are available in this standard. In addition, straight and 90° configurations are available. Several terminal base and shell types with compression cord grip are available. Some have metal, silicone rubber or plastic shells/housing. Terminal bases are available in silicone rubber, porcelain or plastic.
The DIN 49458 (VDE 035) are two pole with 3 wire grounding European connecting plugs/devices, 10 Amps, 250V, 155°C. Some have metal, silicone or plastic shells/housing. Terminal bases are available in plastic only. Straight and 90° versions are available in the female/jack version, 3 metal pins/terminals are vertically orientated with this standard.
Accessories like high temperature heater hook-up wire, high temperature terminal blocks, high temperature ring ,spade and butt connectors/terminals, high temperature thermocouple wire,high temperature thermocouple plugs, high temperature flexible silicone rubber (three and four conductor) wire or cordage, termination boxes and European "schuko" plugs are also available.
When exporting electrical / electronic equipment to foreign countries there are three basic power plug / receptacle configuration systems in use in most countries of the world. They are the "NATIONAL" configurations, "IEC 60309 (formerly 309) - CEE 17" configurations and "IEC 60320 (formerly 320)" configurations which are explained below.
National configurations are plug / receptacles of a blade or pin design that are commonly used in a general geographical area or a specific country for the connection of electrical / electronic equipment to a power source. Generally rated 16 ampere-250 volt or less they are used on computers, appliances, medical equipment, small machines, portable tools and other light duty / medium duty electrical equipment. Many countries have configuration standards for 2 pole-2 wire, 2 pole-3 wire and 3 pole-4 wire type plugs / receptacles, however, the preponderance of usage is the 2 pole-3 wire grounding configuration. Usage of 2 pole-3 wire grounding configurations in foreign countries is similar to the use and application of NEMA 5-15 plugs and receptacles in the United States. All "NATIONAL" configuration plugs, receptacles, connectors, power strips, cords and cord sets are approved by the appropriate testing agency where applicable.
IEC 60320 (formerly 320) CONFIGURATIONS
IEC 60320 (formerly 320) configurations are a series of plugs, connectors, inlets and outlets designed for use on portable equipment such as computers, printers, medical equipment and other electrical /electronic equipment. Typical examples are the three pin power inlets on the back of your computer or printer. Cord sets with IEC 60320 (formerly 320) connectors and national plug configurations allow exported equipment to interface with outlets used around the world. IEC 60320 (formerly 320) devices are in accordance with standard sheets C 13-14 (65°C), C 15-16 (120°C), C 19-20 (65°C) at various ratings. The 120° C devices incorporate a keyway that prevents entry of 65°C connectors. Approvals include UL, CSA, VDE, OVE, CEBEC, DEMKO, KEMA, SEV, NEMKO and other agencies.
IEC 60309 (formerly 309) - CEE 17 CONFIGURATIONS
IEC 60309 (formerly 309) - CEE 17 configurations are HEAVY DUTY plug / receptacles of a pin / sleeve design and have a specific rating for each configuration. Unlike "NATIONAL" type plug / receptacle configurations that are used in a general geographic area or specific country, the IEC 60309 (formerly 309) - CEE 17 are recognized in many countries of the world for use on heavy duty equipment. IEC 60309 (formerly 309) - CEE 17 devices are rated 16/20 ampere, 30/32 ampere, 60/63 ampere, 125 ampere in various voltages and are available in 2 pole - 3 wire, 3 pole - 4 wire and 4 pole - 5 wire grounding configurations. These units are approved by the various testing / standards agencies and are ideal for application on large computers, machine tools, welders and other industrial equipment. Explosion-proof, watertight and high abuse models are available on request.
