With an assortment of options including Arktite, Cam-Lock, and Posi-lok, Crouse-Hinds is sure to have a solution for you.

There is no substitute for Crouse-Hinds’ Arktite pin and sleeve device. Arktite is available in 20A through 400A with reserve contacts, special polarity, and Corro-FreeTM epoxy powder finish for added corrosion resistance. Download the full Akrtite brochure to learn more.

Applications include:

  • Supply power to portable electrical equipment such as welders, motor-generator sets, compressors, conveyors, and similar equipment
  • Areas where dust, dirt, moisture, and corrosion are a problem
  • Indoors and outdoors in manufacturing plants, process industry facilities, and similar industrial locations
  • Where temporary power is needed, such as at trailers, building units, heavy machinery, etc.

Cam-LokTM plugs and receptacles replace expensive and bulky multi-conductor cables, allowing the use of lighter, single-conductor cables rated at higher amperages. Cam-LokTM connectors also provide the ability to quickly connect and disconnect without tools. Download the full Cam-Lok brochure to learn more.
