Enhanced Watertight Wiring Condition Plugs and Connectors from Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems Ensure Critical Power Delivery in Harsh Environments

Shelton, Conn. – Aug. 2, 2019 – Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems announces a new line of Watertight Wiring Condition Plugs and Connectors, with high-performance features that improve safety and productivity during the power-delivery process.

The new Watertight Wiring Condition Plugs and Connectors incorporate the best features from Hubbell’s existing watertight plugs and connectors and combine them with impressive new characteristics to boost performance and increase user safety.

To help installers easily see the LED indicators embedded inside the devices – which indicate power and wiring conditions – a translucent, over-mold elastomer provides a visual indication of miswiring:

  • Green = correct power and wiring (okay)
  • Red = incorrect power and wiring (check)
  • Off – no power
To make washdown easier, this enhanced line of Watertight Wiring Condition Plugs and Connectors features a smoother body that reduces the opportunity for debris buildup. In addition, elastomer cone seals can be adjusted to fit a variety of cord sizes to prevent dirt, debris, mold, and water from collecting at cable entrances. This cone seal also provides additional strain relief.

“With these enhancements, Hubbell can offer a high-performance solution for any watertight application,” says Mike Williams, product manager at Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems. “Our new watertight plugs and connectors truly make a difference in unforgiving conditions where power is critical to maintaining uptime.”

Watertight Wiring Condition Plugs and Connectors can deliver power in the harshest of environments, including factories and food and beverage, agriculture, construction, and outdoor environments. They are UL 498 Listed, NSF and CSA C22.2 No. 42 certified, and IP69K rated to perform despite mud, standing water, frequent use, and temperature fluctuations. Built with impact-resistant TPE housing and PBT nuts, the plugs and connectors aren’t impacted by chemicals or abuse.
