02 December 2021

Heilind Electronics, a global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for Molex, has expanded its selection of connector solutions with the manufacturer’s Woodhead ArcArrest 30 A switch-rated connector system.

Incorporating many options and components into a smooth, contoured design, the Woodhead ArcArrest switch-rated connector system from Molex delivers the simplest and fastest way to de-energize industrial equipment and perform lockout/tagout operations. Unlike standard industrial disconnect switches, the Source: Heilind ElectronicsSource: Heilind ElectronicsArcArrest system provides fast and positive confirmation of compliance. Pressing the pawl on the receptacle ejects the plug to its rest position, while rotating the plug allows for removal and closes a dead-front shutter on the receptacle. This feature provides visual proof that power has been removed.

A smooth, contoured housing design makes the ArcArrest system suitable for conveyors, process equipment and packaging machines in food processing applications requiring frequent washdowns. The NEMA 4X and IP69K-rated system eliminates ingress of dust and water when the system is connected or disconnected. Critical components of the UL 2682-rated ArcArrest system are reinforced to deliver excellent strength and complete UL material compliance.
