MOTION CONTROL: AutomationDirect has added a new line of Bryant wiring devices to its product offering. A full line of locking and straight blade plugs, connectors and receptacles are available in 15, 20, and 30A models.
Locking plugs and connectors constructed with impact and chemical-resistant nylon housings feature an internal Triple Gripper® cord clamp which automatically centers and secures the cord. Double wall construction provides extra durability; the configuration-specific plug face surrounds plug blades to prevent infiltration of contaminants. Each terminal cover is imprinted with amperage, voltage and NEMA configuration on the face for easy identification and extended “teardrop” wiring pockets and backed-out captive terminal screws simplify wiring. Locking plugs start at $6.25
Locking receptacles are designed with back and side wiring terminals that accept 14 to 8 gauge solid or stranded conductor wires. Molded of rugged reinforced thermoplastic polyester, the base minimizes heat buildup and resists breakage. Heavy-duty nickel-plated mounting straps are grounded for safe installations. NEMA rating and configurations are molded into the toughened nylon face for easy identification. Receptacle prices start at $4.75.
Straight blade devices are available in 15 to 30A sizes. A universal cord grip design accepts .300 inch to .655 inch (7.6mm to 16.6mm) wire sizes. Prices for straight blade plugs and connectors start at $6.25.
Available high-visibility lockouts provide additional protection. The OSHA lockout/tagout regulation compliant devices protect against unexpected start-up of equipment during maintenance and repair work. To accommodate a full range of plug designs and ratings, the lockouts are available in three sizes. Lockout prices start at $12.25.
A variety of accessories includes stainless steel receptacle plates, starting at $1.50, angle adapters for 20 and 30A plugs and connectors for $14.25, and weather boots starting at $9.25
