Schneider Electric has introduced its high performance industrial plugs and sockets range, Pratika, to the local market. Kadra enclosures, specifically designed to embed Pratika sockets, complete the range, making it the ultimate system for electrical distribution in locations requiring weatherproof equipment.
This wide range of PratiKa plugs and sockets is available for 16 A, 32 A, 63 A and 125 A with degree of protection IP44 and IP67 in the wander, panel and wall versions.
The solutions are especially fast to connect, as well as being safe, functional and ergonomic, easy-to-use and intuitive. Furthermore, complying with IEC 60309 standards, all the PratiKa industrial sockets have a lock or holding mechanism, which keeps the plug firmly locked in the socket and thus preventing them from being pulled out involuntarily. Sockets with an interlock switch have been designed to meet the safety requirements and, in particular, to prevent plug insertion or removal while the socket is under load.
The interlocking device allows closure of the main switch and, subsequently, the power supply, only when the plug is fully inserted in the socket and when complete mechanical and electrical connection has occurred between the sleeves and pins. Plug removal is possible only when the switch is in the off position.
The range is designed to suit all needs and all kinds of environments within the agricultural sector, industry, workshops, on building sites, as well as indoor and outdoor building applications of any kind.
