Rosemont, Ill.—Appleton, a manufacturer of products for hazardous location electrical systems, has introduced a versatile line of tray cable connectors engineered for use with TC, ITC, PLTC and other commonly-used types of tray cable.

Key to the success of the new connectors is a compensating displacement seal that provides ingress protection to NEMA 4X and IP68 standards, allowing use in highly caustic or harsh. The connectors also feature a seal insert that lets each gland terminate the broadest cable range available in a single hub size.

Manufacturered in aluminum, stainless steel and nickel-plated brass, the new connectors offer a wide continuous operating temperature range of -76F to 230F and come in trade sizes ranging from 1/2 inch to 4 inches. NPT threads are standard, while metric is available as an option. Other options include an adaptor/reducer and earth tags.

Ratings and classifications:

• cCSAus, IECEx, ATEX certified;
• Class I, Div 2, Groups A, B, C and D;
• Class I, Zone 1 AEx e and Ex e, where permitted by code;
• Class II, Div 2, Groups E, F and G;
• Class III, Div 1 and 2;
• NEMA: 4X; and
