Improve Safety in Demanding Environments With Turck's New Preassembled Meltric Connector Cable Assemblies

To improve worker safety in industrial environments, Turck has introduced a new pre-assembled Meltric connector offering with arc protection. The products offer a complete cable assembly solution, saving labor and installation time and ensuring reliability.

To protect against arcing, the Meltric series connectors feature spring-loaded demating technology inside an enclosed arc chamber, along with mating and demating shutters to shield users from live parts. Users are able to safely connect and disconnect the devices under load.  For additional safety, these connectors will only mate with their designated connector class, and demate and break load by the push of a
button directly on the connector.

Each Meltric connector is switch and horsepower rated, so one device can be used as both a connector and disconnect switch. Operations are streamlined by removing the need for a separate disconnect switch in applications that require a line-of-sight disconnect.

Ideal for use with high-powered electrical equipment, these connectors can serve as both a connector and a disconnect switch. The ability to have a quick disconnect connector allows a simplified motor change-out process. This new Meltric connector offering can be simply disconnected with the push of a button and they meet all required electrical safety guidelines.
