Plugs and Sockets Guide

Buying equipment for use in a hazardous area requires that you know the different types of plugs and sockets available to suit your needs. The table below clarifies the different makes available and the associated colours and voltages.

ATEX plugs, sockets and couplers are designed specifically for use in hazardous area environments and offer mechanical advantages over the popular and widely used standard versions including:- 

  • Ingress protection to IP66/67
  • Suitable for Zones 1 and 2 (gas), and Zones 21 and 22 (dust) applications

Make sure you are using the right type of plugs and sockets for your zoned area equipment.  If you need any advice, contact us here on +44 (0)333 240 6111 or refer to the Product Reference Guide in our full catalogue for more information http://www.saequip.com/technical-support
