Pluggable Wieland Connectors Speed Installation
Plug-in cordsets and connectors.
Burgaw, NC — Wieland Electric is introducing its gesis® IP+ (Ingress Protection) family of pluggable connectors. IP+ connectors reduce on-site system installation time as compared to conventional wiring. The product range consists of four basic components: connectors for on-site assembly, preassembled plug-in distribution units, cut to length overmolded cable assemblies, and panel mount or device connectors.

Factory preassembly and testing of pluggable components and delivery, ready-to-install, replaces conventional on-site requirements including cutting cables to length, stripping cable sheaths and wire insulation, and component connection. Elimination of these time-consuming operations reduces errors and speeds production.

The gesis IP+ system can be used wherever electrical power or signals need to be distributed. Two family versions are available; the first version, comprised of three and five pole screw clamp connectors, is UL and CSA rated 25A, 600V, 10 AWG. The second version, comprised of two to five pole screw clamp connectors, is UL and CSA rated 20A, 600V, 12 AWG. Both the 20A and 25A connector families have IP 65 to 68 protection rating ensuring reliable operation in harsh indoor and outdoor environments.

These ratings make IP+ connectors applicable for material handling and lighting industries. Material handling includes elevators and moving stairs, conveying equipment, and monorail systems. Lighting includes street, decorative, construction site, and fountain. With the available range of device connectors almost any lighting fixture can be made pluggable and lighting manufacturers can integrate these connectors into their products.
