Hazardous area connection specialist, Hawke International, has launched the new fourth generation ControlEx connectors. Improvements include a new padlock facility and improved secure cap fixings. The padlock allows the connectors to be securely locked to prevent accidental un-plugging of equipment while the improved secure cap fixings prevent them being lost or damaged.
Designed for powering control equipment in hazardous areas, the plug-and play connectors promote the safe and rapid installation, service and replacement of control equipment, enhancing productivity and uptime. Customer feedback shows reduced hook-up time continues to be a vital contribution to achieving cost savings and increased productivity.
Ideal for both offshore and onshore application in oil and gas operations and other environments with explosion hazards, the new ControlEx maintains many of the original features of earlier models. These include a variable keying system to prevent accidental cross-mating, modular gold plated field-crimpable inserts for ease of wiring and an easily inspected flameproof barrier seal.
ControlEx embodies over 20 years of experience in plug-and-socket manufacture. Machined from marine grade stainless steel, the connectors provide unrivalled durability in hostile environments. The equipment is ATEX, IECEX, GOST and NEC certified, Exd rated with an ingress protection rating of IP66/67 and industry leading DTS01 deluge protection. Flexibility and efficient stock holding is assured with multiple inserts being available allowing bodies to handle up to 60 cores.
