Benefits of Self-Ejecting Plugs and Receptacles
Accidental drive-offs of mobile equipment without first disconnecting power can be dangerous and result in major equipment damage. Protect users and equipment with MELTRIC Self-Ejecting plugs and receptacles.
Drive-away damage can leave trailer/mobile equipment inlets in an unsafe condition and result in live conductors being exposed on supply side/loading dock equipment, posing unexpected shock or arc flash hazards for subsequent users.
MELTRIC Self-Ejecting devices are available with auxiliary pilot contacts or additional standard contacts that can be used to control the power circuit so that power is off anytime the connector is not mated to the inlet on the trailer or other equipment.
Environmental ratings up to IP69K that are achieved automatically when the device is mated and available plug/inlet caps help ensure against electrical hazards caused by water ingress.
A padlockable pawl option allows the receptacle lid to be locked in the closed position should it ever be necessary to prevent the use of the equipment.
