UL Listed Cam and SafeCam®
Electrical connectors for higher amperage applications such as feeder cable, power distro extensions and location lighting are usually Series 16 Cam devices, often referred to as a cam-lok ( a trademark of Cooper Industries ). Manufactured by several companies, cams are color-coded and have a common single-pin mating configuration. These devices, especially receptacles, can be hazardous to use and are intended for use only by qualified personnel.
Union Connector has developed a cam-type outlet system that will accept standard cam plugs but will automatically disconnect power to the receptacles until ALL the receptacles contain a plug. Any time there is an exposed outlet, power is disconnected from all the system’s outlets. This system is called SafeCam®. It is only available on a Union Connector Company Switch.
NEMA, Pin & Sleeve, Multi-pin
Union Connector distributes other electrical wiring devices such as NEMA Locking, U-ground, and other plugs receptacles and connectors. The ratings range from 20A., 125V. to 50A., 120/208V. In addition to these commonly used devices, Union also carries 60A. and 100A. Pin & Sleeve IEC 309 wiring devices. These are most often used in audio applications or in areas where weather may be a concern. For even more specialized applications, Union Connector can provide multi-pin (usually 19-pin), devices. These are most often used with break-ins and break-outs, or on custom distros.
