The Zone 1 rated connectors eliminate hard wiring to terminal blocks in junction boxes. Their aluminum housings are finished with a hard anodized coating to 40 points on the Rockwell C scale. Stainless steel and brass housings are also available. The connectors handle power up to 115 A at 1000 V with up to 143 contacts. Contacts are made of copper with a standard silver and optional gold plating. Pricing starts are $350, and delivery is within two to four weeks.
