ATEX 16 Amp Plugs & Sockets

Appleton ATX PRE Series

Appleton ATX PRE Series 16 Amp Plugs and Sockets use a ‘pin and sleeve’ design to deliver safe power to both stationary and portable equipment such as lighting systems, conveyors, heating and air conditioning equipment, compressors, pumps or motor generators.

Suitable for use in damp, wet or corrosive environments, all PRE series sockets are keyed to accept only ATX plugs. Plugs & sockets are colour coded per IEC directives, for easy identification of different voltages. The Appleton ATX PRE series of plugs and sockets are ATEX and IECEx certified for use in hazardous areas Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.

The sockets are available in wall-mount, flush-mount and mobile versions.
