Arktite CES and CPH Explosion-proof Receptacles and Plugs

Arktite CES explosion-proof receptacles and CPH plugs are used with portable electrically operated devices such as motor generator sets, compressors, conveyors, portable tools and lighting systems.

CES receptacles are equipped with a delayed action rotating sleeve which prevents complete withdrawal of the CPH plug in one continuous movement.  This delayed action feature permits the plug to be used as an emergency push-pull switch.

CPH plugs can also be used with standard AR and NR receptacles of the same ampere rating, style and number of poles, thus permitting portable devices which are suitable for use in hazardous locations to be connected to receptacles in both hazardous and non-hazardous areas.

Available in 30A and 60A configurations.
