Molex Woodhead ArcArrest 30A Switch-Rated Connector System provides arc flash protection

Molex announces its Woodhead ArcArrest 30A Switch-Rated Connector System, which is designed to safely de-energize machinery, lighting and power distribution systems. The ArcArrest system simplifies lockout/tagout procedures and helps protect against injury due to hazardous energy released in industrial and commercial operations.

The Woodhead ArcArrest switch-rated connector helps prevent hazardous energy release while energizing or de-energizing machines, and during lockouts for service and maintenance. Spring-loaded silver-nickel contacts provide switching capabilities similar to a rotary switch or contactor. Unlike standard industrial disconnect switches, which are not always located in close proximity to equipment and may require an electrician to perform lockout/tagout procedures, the ArcArrest system provides fast and positive confirmation of compliance. Pressing the pawl on the receptacle ejects the plug to its rest position and de-energizes the system. Rotating the plug allows for removal and closes a dead-front shutter on the receptacle.

Woodhead ArcArrest connector assemblies incorporate high value features including finger drawplates and plug caps. A smooth, contoured housing design makes the ArcArrest system suitable for conveyors, process equipment and packaging machines in food processing applications requiring frequent wash downs. 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.
