The Advantage Series from Hubbell. New and Improved

ByJacob Diker


Standard Electric and Hubbell are proud to promote the Advantage Series Switch Rated IEC Pins and Sleeve Devices. Never heard of it before? No worries! Hubbell pin and sleeve products are designed and manufactured to meet the International Standard IEC 60309-1 and IEC 60309-2. This standard calls for a single rated, noninterchangeable configuration for every voltage and type of service throughout the world. Pin and sleeve device housings are color coded by voltage rating. The voltage is determined by the location of the female ground contact relative to the housing keyway. Manufacturing the device with a ground contact in a specific “clock” position, the device will be rated for a particular voltage system. 

Demanding environments call for high-performance pin and sleeve connections. Hubbell has taken the highest performing plugs, connectors, & receptacles, and made them even better. To develop the Advantage Series, they took Hubbell's existing Pin and Sleeve Devices, increased the horsepower ratings, added the switching capabilities of a general purpose branched disconnect, and wrapped it up in a compact design. The Advantage™ Series Switch Rated IEC Pin & Sleeve Devices are available in 30, 60 and 100AMP versions and are approved for both motor and branch circuit disconnects.
