When Plugs Don't Plug and Play

When Plugs Don't Plug and Play

Plugs that have not been used for a while can quickly turn plug and play into plug and pull. As the operator uses force to break the cold weld which forms between the pins and the contacts, the time clock begins to tick and the risk of damage increases.

Simply changing to a different contact design can solve this. The unique spring-loaded butt-type contacts in MARECHAL Electric decontactor sockets meet head-on and feature self-cleaning silver-nickel tips which provide a low contact resistance in addition to a 10kA short circuit rating.

A release latch quickly disconnects the Marechal plug into a parked position, allowing equipment to be disconnected under load and visibly isolated in complete safety.
