Besides plugs and receptacles, Meltic can provide specialty products for electrical connections and power connections.
Meltric manufactures a wide variety of specialty products to fit specific application needs and to help users benefit from the advantages of Meltric’s switch rated DECONTACTORTM Series plugs and receptacles where ever connections may need to be made and broken.
Portable Power Distribution – Provide switch rated safety where ever connections are made
POWER DISTRIBUTION – CUSTOM SOLUTIONS
Horizontal 6-Gang BoxesIdeal for work-site power distribution to welders and
other portable equipment. Commonly used in shipyards
and construction sites.
Horizontal 8-Gang BoxesIdeal for high amperage power distribution to large equipment or to secondary power distribution boxes
such as the Horizontal 6-Gang boxes shown above. Commonly used in shipyards.
Wall Boxes with Integral Circuit ProtectionProvide extra protection with local fusing or circuit
breakers in an integral package or in combination
with an auxiliary bladed disconnect switch.
Dual Voltage Boxes - Non-fusedFor plugging in both heavy duty equipment such as
welders or lighter duty equipment such as power tools. Commonly used in automotive industry and other large manufacturing facilities.
Disconnect Combinations – Provide convenience and visual verification of deenergization
SAFETY SWITCH/RECEPTACLE COMBINATIONS
- DSN Receptacle (DS is standard)
- DB Receptacle
- Straight Adapter (Angle is standard)
- Non-Fused (Fused is standard)
- Reverse Service
The standard Meltric Safety Switch Disconnect consists of a DS Series receptacle and angle mounted and wired to a heavy duty, single throw, fusible safety switch. They can optionally be provided with DSN or DB series Decontactors, straight mounting adapters, non-fused switches, or with circuit breaker protection.
Backbox Adapter Plates – Simplify replacement of competitive devices with Decontactors
ADAPTER PLATESUpdating your facility with Decontactor™ Series plugs and receptacles is simple and affordable with Meltric’s adapter plates. They allow the mounting of Decontactors to existing boxes previously used for competitive devices. This avoids the cost and hassle of installing new boxes and performing associated re-piping and rewiring. If an adapter plate for the box you have is not listed, contact customer service and Meltric will design a new one to fit your application.
Cord Grips – Enhance strain relief and cord gripping
WS Single Pole Welding Connectors – Fast and reliable connections
WS WELDING CONNECTORSWS devices allow users to make fast and reliable connections of welding cables. Their spring-loaded silver contacts provide connections that are unaffected by cable movement or vibration and operate with a self-cleaning wiping action that ensures a reliable electrical connection every time.
LC Battery Connectors – Easy operation with the safety of silver-nickel butt style contacts
LC BATTERY CONNECTORS
The periodic charging of batteries for many applications (including electric boats and material handling vehicles) requires frequent connector operations. In order to avoid current interrupting on the charging contacts, a pilot contact is generally used. The pilot contact is designed to break before the main contacts, thereby signalling the circuit breaker to function.
Meltric’s LC battery connectors, are made with spring-loaded, silver-nickel butt style contacts, which are operated by means of a lever. This design ensures a superior electrical connection and the quick and easy operation of the device. The lever also provides a means of locking the units together to help prevent accidental disengagement. By contrast, many competitive battery charger connectors use sliding contacts. Because of how they operate, sliding contacts cannot provide the electrical performance, the durability or the quick breaking capabilities of Meltric’s lever operated and spring-loaded, silver-nickel butt contacts.
Voltage/Phase Rotation Meter – Easy means of testing Meltric receptacles for voltage
PHASE ROTATION METER ASSEMBLIES
Voltage/Phase Rotation Meters offer customers an easy means of testing Meltric receptacles for voltage, as well as, motor rotation. The product consists of an inlet and handle wired to the meter. Smaller devices use standard nylon handles, while larger devices are provided with PH handles and cord-grips.
