Powersafe offers connectors to suit 10 different cable sizes, cross-sectional areas (from 25mm2 up to 300mm2. 500A connectors are used for cable sizes between 25mm2 & 150mm2 800A connectors are used for cable sizes between 185mm2 & 300mm2 It's the cable size, cross-sectional area (CSA termination), that determines which connectors are required. Powersafe Powerlock connectors are available with Set Screw termination for cables up to 120mm and with Crimped termination for cable sizes between 150mm2 & 300mm2 The Powersafe set-screw M40A 120mm2 (= 382Amps) termination is the industry standard for cable with a CSA of between 25mm & 120mm2 A series of adapter bushings are available which can reduce the set-screw contact ID to suit the diameter of the cable being installed ie 95/70/35/25mm2 Additionally, these set-screw M40A 120mm2 connectors can accept most H07RN-F cable of up to 150mm2 (= 441Amps)
In an emergency power application, the generator is the source and would be fitted with Panel Source (panel-mount) connectors. A cable assembly is required to connect between the generator (source) and the item receiving the power (drain). This will usually have a drain connector on one end a source connector on the other
All of our Powersafe & PowerSYNTAX Powerlock connectors are fully compatible with Litton VEAM ITT Cannon versions.
