The safer alternative to Cam-Lok / Cam Lock Connectors

The Powersafe connector is the safer alternative to America’s industry standard Cam Locks. Whilst the UK and Europe have adopted the safer and higher quality Powersafe, America is yet to fully convert. The Powersafe connector is pending UL approval in early 2018. Phase 3’s connectors are mechanically keyed and locked high current single pole connectors that boast improvements such as:

  • Increased Current Carrying Capacity
  • Increased Ingress Protection Rating
  • Reduced Insertion Force
  • Improved Cable Strain Relief
  • Improved Impact Resistance
  • Rubber Hand Grip for ease of coupling and added impact protection

The Powersafe Connector

The highest rated and safest connectors on the market!

powersafe connectors

The Powersafe connector series is based on a standard format mechanically keyed and locked high current single pole connectors as utilised by the UK and European temporary power industries.

 

powersafe connectorWith increased demand for temporary high power systems in entertainment and industrial applications, the choice of high current connectors is critical to ensure safety and reliability for everyday use.

Designed to connect single and three phase high current power circuits, Phase 3, Powersafe, single pole connectors are at the forefront of both safety and technical capability.

These connectors have been tried and tested in some of the harshest environments worldwide; from the oil fields of Canada to data centres in the Arctic Circle. Based on their impressive technical capabilities, added safety features, rugged construction, reliability and quality, they are a popular choice for professional engineers.

Standard safety features include a secondary locking system which requires a key to unlock the connection. This is in addition to finger-proofed electrical contacts and all connectors, which reduces the risk of accidental contact when the connector is live.

Ul-Approved-C-and-USConnectors are available in cable and panel-mount formats with either crimp or screw contacts. Rated at 500A and 800A for single core cables from 25 – 300mm2, Phase 3 Powersafe connectors are, at present, amongst the highest rated and safest connectors of their type on the market.

Happy Birthday to us!

one year celebration

It’s been a full year this week since we purchased Phase 3 Connectors Limited – Manufacturer of connectors for the power distribution and entertainment industry – from an administrator. We started off with the mindset that things were better than it appeared to be…..

 

Phase 3 ConnectorsOur journey started by ensuring customers were aware that Phase 3 were back in operation. Delivering legacy orders and delivering orders that had been paid for previously but had never yet been delivered. We wanted to gain trust with clients by ensuring that all these issues were taken care off. The first three months were very hectic. Slowly, we were able to get back on track and with replenished stock on the shelfs we were then able to offer next day delivery on standard connectors.

We have seen many new and old customers. We have also allowed for payment by credit card which enables us to perform an immediate dispatch to our customers. Many suppliers were owed money from the previous owner, we worked hard with our suppliers to assist in recouping lost revenue. To this date, Phase 3 have remained with the same supplier.

In July this year, we engaged with a web design/development agency, PageNorth, based in Glenrothes, Fife.  The support PageNorth has given us has been invaluable. Our e-commerce website was designed, developed and launched all within a few months. We worked closely with PageNorth and learned about social media, blogging, driving traffic to the website etc. We believe our website gives customers confidence in purchasing our connectors as well as raising brand awareness. The website has brought us many new customers as well as many blue chip customers in the Power Distribution industry and Entertainment markets. We recently travelled to Dubai, Netherlands, Spain and Germany to secure contracts with new and existing distributors. We have had our Australian Distributor visit us here in the UK.

We are about to gain full UL Approval with ISO9001 already gained earlier this year.

Fantastic opportunities exist to gain further business is the USA whilst, of course, we remain focused in growing the company. It’s a nice position to be in, to be able to turn a company around and ensure we continue the journey well into 2017.

It’s worth browsing our website as we are able to show all our products and our test reports. You can read information about our company and will notice the most important message being quality. Our goal is to remain highly accredited which gives our customers the confidence in our products as well as growing long term business relationships.

Here’s to the years to come where, hopefully, we will grow from strength to strength.

Success for Phase 3 Connectors!

A review of the past 3 months

Power Connectors

Recently we have seen our busiest month to date, with now 50% of turnover being new customers. As you will be aware, we recently launched our new website. The influx of traffic generated from here and our social media channels has influenced our recent growth greatly.

  • We have won new business from Generator Power, and Cleveland Cables.
  • We have also agreed deals with SES for Power Connectors for the Entertainment Industry in Dubai and with Technowill in France to supply Power Connectors and Network Connection Devices.
  • We have been asked to demonstrate our Products to DEWA, (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority)
  • We have UL Approval pending and have recently begun the journey for VDE Approval.

Being based in the UK ensures we are very competitive in our market place. With our focus being on quality, we hope to soon become the most certified Powerlock type connector manufacturer in the industry.

With hard work and dedication we hope to continue in our success over the coming months ahead.
