TPC Wire & Cable Thermo-Trex 500-Plus Cordsets
TPC Wire & Cable Thermo-Trex 500-Plus Cordsets connect 12 AWG wire quickly and offer IP68-rated moisture seals.
TPC Wire & Cable Corp. expanded its Thermo-Trex family of cables with Thermo-Trex 500-Plus 12 AWG Cordsets, which are designed with a tear-resistant silicone jacket and fully bonded silicone head providing an IP68-rated seal against moisture. The cordsets are ideal for applications where electrical connections are exposed to high temperatures up to 180°C, UV light, chemicals, moisture, dust, and mechanical abuse.
The Thermo-Trex 500-Plus 12 AWG Cordsets work well in industrial environments such as steel, wood, pulp and paper, oil and gas, transportation, and food processing, which can be unusually abusive. The product was designed to include extra-long grounding pins to ensure first-in, last-out contact for safety, as well as stainless steel knurled coupling rings and a retaining washer that resists corrosion and provides quick and secure assembly. The solid brass contact pins are nickel-coated and gold-plated for longer life, corrosion resistance and easier positive engagement. Customers will benefit from its excellent low-voltage, low-level signal applications for use in conveyors, pumps, motor-operated valves, kiln fans, and hood lighting.
“The true benefit of our Thermo-Trex 500-Plus 12 AWG Cordsets is the fully bonded IP68-rated seal when paired with the Thermo-Trex 500-Plus Cable,” said Bill Root, TPC Wire & Cable product manager. “The combination provides ultimate electrical connection protection from dust and water ingress.”
