GEWISS’s IEC 309 High Performance range, available from ACDC Dynamics, is a high-end range of industrial connections delivering performance, functionality and technical features. The range boasts a fully comprehensive assortment of products to create any kind of service or industrial system.

High performance socket outlets and plugs

The range expands GEWISS’s assortment of 16 A and 32 A mobile plugs, mobile and flush-mounting socket-outlets, with IP44 and IP66/67/68/69 degree of protection, in both the quick and screw wiring versions. The range is quick and simple to assemble and wire, and has been restyled as a single, modern, functional line. Included in the High Performance range are the 63 A and 125 A plugs and socket-outs, with a polarity, voltages and nominal frequencies suitable for all systems up to 500 V, in IP44 protected and IP67 watertight versions, multipliers and adapters, very low voltage versions, plus 90°, straight flush-mounting and 10° surface-mounting versions.

Main features of the IEC 309 High Performance range:

  • Safe-lock closure: The ¼ turn screw guarantees practical, simple to use, quick assembly and safe closing thanks to the readily identifiable reference system. The reinforced technopolymer of the SAFE-LOCK system ensures maximum resistance to abrasion adding to a long life expectancy and eliminating the problem of metal closing system corrosion, even in more aggressive environments. The body/grip coupling is solid and effective.

  • Practical and ergonomic: All the mobile socket-outlet covers have a special shape making them safe and simple to open. The covers can be opened using one hand, which makes plug/socket-outlet insertion practical and simple.

  • The functional coupling system: The nibbed screw, which is a product requirement for secure socket-outlet covers, is also on the socketoutlets. With their innovative shape, the new products can be coupled to fencing and scaffolding during use in trailing systems.

  • Raised earth terminal: The range has an earth terminal that is raised. If a connection cable is accidentally pulled out, the earth cable will be the last to be released, preventing the user from getting an electric shock and avoiding electrical discharge on devices. The cable clamping system: The external cable clamp, used on all versions, secures the cable and maintains the IP rating in absolute safety, making it easier to close the device by hand, without using any tools. The anti-loosening device prevents the accidental unscrewing or loosening of screws, even when subject to considerable vibration or mechanical stress. The ring nut is unlosable to make wiring easier for the installer. The cable gland can accommodate a range of cables above regulatory requirements, both at the bottom and top.

  • Nickel-plated pins and contacts: All IEC309 HP range products feature nickel-plated pins and contacts for a more efficient contact on elements subject to a higher degree of oxidisation: the nickel-plating guarantees maximum product life and allows for use in environments with critical climatic conditions (marine environments) or aggressive substances.

  • Single pack: Each IEC 309 HP range item is individually blister-packed. This means the product is always clean in all storage conditions. Each blister pack has the barcode of the product for easy identification.

  • Halogen-free: All products are in halogen-free technopolymer conforming to EN50267-22, guaranteeing the utmost safety for people and equipment in the case of fire.
