Phase 3 manufacture electrical power products for Military and Aerospace industries. Powersafe Connectors have been used for the launch of spacecraft technology, emergency power on nuclear submarines, harsh environment military bases, naval ships and more. The fully certified military connectors include plugs and socket formats for power distribution up to 800 amps. Fast lead times, incredible quality, always reliable.
Phase 3 for Military Connectors & Aerospace Connectors
Phase 3 are proud manufacturers and suppliers of single pole and circular power connectors to Military, Government Projects, Aerospace Innovations and International Space Agencies. We cannot disclose particular agency or project names, however our projects are used by prestigious customers due to their unquestionable reliability, added safety benefits and quality certifications.
Powersafe powerlock connectors are considered the industry leader in quality and safety for power connectors. Powersafe powerlock boxes are sequential mating boxes for safe and controlled distribution of emergency power backup. In particular, the Powersafe Box is widely used on military bases, naval submarines and for connection of trailing cables for portable tools during the manufacturing of spacecraft and aviation vehicles.
Powersafe Industrial Plugs & Sockets
Phase 3’s Powersafe range are the highest rated, safest and finest quality single pole power generator connectors. The industrial plugs and sockets are terminated onto mains or trailing cable such as H07RN-F for use with mobile power generators and power tools. Alternatively, Powersafe can be connected to permanently fixed outlets like military bases and naval control panels to transfer low voltage electrical power up to 800 amps.
Powersafe have been specified for use on multi-million pound government and agency contracts for use manufacturing jets, spacecraft and war ships. Phase 3 connectors are chosen as the products have full UL and VDE certification and follow ISO 9001:2015 quality processes. Plugs and sockets are available in source and drain format with crimp or set-screw terminations for electrical use up to 800 amps / 1000 volts.

Power Generator Socket
Powersafe Powerlock Box
Powersafe Sequential Mating Box is used as an electrical connection point for high current energy transfer up to 800A. The powerlock box’s sequence of connection and disconnection is controlled. Therefore, live lines cannot be mismated as safety lines must be connected first and disconnected last (FMLB). As a result, Powersafe Sequential Boxes are the military and aerospace industry’s safest industrial sockets. Government projects choose the box for its added safety benefits such as a rear fail-safe switch that will cut electrical power if tampering occurs. In contrast to Cam Lock type connectors, Powersafe won’t disconnect easily, meaning in stressful conditions such as war zones, vibrations and sudden pressure will not disconnect the box leaving dangerous live lines exposed.
- Powersafe Sequential Mating Box available as source or drain versions
- Available with either 5 ports or 4 ports (no neutral).
- Straight front panel has two sizes, 88mm (2U) and 108mm (4U) for panel or rack mounting
- Fully compatible with other powerlock 400A and 660A connectors.
- Lid for outdoor use ensures water and dust protection to IP67 rating
Hostile Environment Connectors
Powersafe have been used in some of the most demanding hostile environments imaginable: research ships in the Article Circle, oil fields in Canada, military desert bases in the Middle East and the icy glades of South Korea. The connectors can withstand temperatures of -30°C and have an operation temperature of 85°C. Hostile Environment Connectors like Powersafe are heavy duty and robust, meaning their operation can be reliable upon in emergency situations.
Environmental Dust Cap Protection
Powersafe Environmental Dust Caps are heavy duty protective caps for high current power connectors. Environmental caps are manufactured in high-impact thermoplastic and IP67 rated sealing, making them an incredibly durable product. The caps are designed with a colour coded mechanical locking system to prevent accidental disconnection.
