19 Pin Connectors Features
19 Pin Connector socapex Breakout Spider Clamps
The Showsafe connector has a Spider Clamp that offers cable strain relief combined with watertight sealing (IP67) when using six individual cables in breakout applications. The design incorporates Phase 3’s “Spider Trap” mechanical grip mechanism that individually grips each cable jacket. The trap can be quickly and easily orientated to facilitate different cable diameters. A separate silicone sealing grommet ensures a watertight assembly.
Thick-Walled Coupling Nuts
For maximum impact and wear resistance, heavy duty coupling rings have thick wall sections and are machined from high grade alloys with an anodised finish. The ergonomic grip on the stage lighting connector allows for easy mating in all conditions, various colours are available on request.
Backshells are supplied with left-hand threads, which when torqued correctly during assembly will remain secure. For added security the shells also include a grub screw which can be tightened to lock the shell.
Inserts are marked with the industry standard six circuit wiring, identifying Earth, Neutral and Live pin positions.
Socapex Cable & Multicore Cable Use
This Socapex Multicore mains cables is high quality cable that is compatible with 19 pin connectors up to 300/500V. The cable has 18 cores with a flexible black PVC sheath.
