Stage lighting is the craft of lighting as it applies to the production of theatre, dance, opera and other performance arts. Several different types of stage lighting instruments are used in this discipline, but 19 pin plugs are the most popular for 25 amp application. In addition to basic lighting, modern stage lighting can also include special effects, such as lasers and fog machines. Phase 3’s lighting connectors are the choice of professionals worldwide for a number of stage applications. The Showsafe Spider Clamp offers cable strain relief combined with watertight sealing when using 6 individual cables in socapex breakout applications. The design incorporates our “Spider Trap” mechanical grip mechanism which individually grips each cable jacket. The trap can be quickly and easily orientated to facilitate different multicore cable diameters. A separate silicone sealing grommet ensures a watertight assembly.
