Legrand’s new P17 Tempra Pro plugs

June 2021 Electrical Power & Protection

Legrand’s P17 Tempra Pro plugs and sockets, with capacities from 16 A to 125 A, conform to stringent quality, safety and environmental specifications. These components meet requirements for water tightness, corrosion and impact resistance and temperature endurance, between 25°C and + 40°C. Added to this, P17 Tempra Pro complies with stringent fire standards relating to self-extinguishing products and complies with IEC 60309 fire reaction specifications.

P17 Tempra Pro mobile and panel mounting sockets for interior and exterior use have an IP44 rating to guard against projection of water from all directions. Straight plugs, with a screw connection, are available from 16 A to 32 A, from 100 to 500 V AC at 50/60 Hz.

The range also comprises IP-66/67/69 weatherproof mobile, panel mounting and surface mounting sockets that can withstand temporary immersion in water, for example, during rain or floods. Straight plugs have a screw connection and are available from 16 A to 125 A, from 100 to 500 V AC.

The P17 Tempra Pro range has been designed for installation in tight spaces and to save time during mounting, cable connection and maintenance procedures, under all conditions. For user convenience, mobile products are supplied assembled and unlocked. Notable features include a quick opening and closing system, a removable terminal cover at the back of the panel mounting sockets for enhanced protection and clear marking for easy cable stripping. The option of using cables with ferrules is also available. For simple installation there is just one screw per terminal and an optimum wiring area allows easy connections.

This range, which is manufactured from polyamide 6, with anti-corrosion treated screws and stainless steel springs for the sprocket covers, has high resistance to chemical products and can withstand the effects of the arduous conditions. As part of Legrand’s commitment to environmental care, halogen-free recyclable materials, such as silicone and PVC, are used for IP44 products.

Typical applications include general industry, manufacturing and transport facilities, food processing plants, as well as commercial and domestic environments.
