    Industrial Power Connectors

    For power applications in industrial environments, the RS range of Industrial Power Connectors has a connector to suit your needs. Typically supplied with excellent electrical insulation, and complying with relevant standards, these connectors are a safe and sure way to power tools and machinery at a variety of voltage requirements.

    The connectors are easy to assemble, and typically have a locking mating system that seals the connection and prevents unwanted disconnection. The RS range of industrial connectors contains various types, including cable mounted plugs and sockets, as well as wall, mounted appliance inlets.

    Different Types of Industrial Power Connector

    Industrial environments demand robust and reliable power solutions. Therefore, there is a range of industrial power connectors designed to meet these needs efficiently.

    Industrial Sockets

    Industrial sockets are essential for establishing secure electrical connections in various settings. These sockets are available in a wide range of current capacities, including 1A, 4A, 32A, 40A, and even 660A, accommodating voltages from 6V to 1.5kV. The variety in configurations—such as straight and angled- and options for wall, rear, PCB, or panel mounting—allow for flexible installation tailored to different industrial environments. Additionally, colour coding options such as black, blue, brown, red, and yellow not only facilitate quick identification to enhance safety but also assist in maintaining organisation within industrial setups.

    Industrial Plugs

    Industrial plugs are designed to endure the rigours of industrial use, ensuring consistent power delivery under challenging conditions. These plugs are available with protection ratings of IP20 all the way up to IP68, safeguarding against dust ingress and moisture, thus suitable for both indoors and environments exposed to the elements. Our range includes plugs for single-phase as well as three-phase systems, available with multiple pin configurations such as 3 pins (2P+E) and 4 pins (3P+E). These plugs are offered in amperages of 6A, 32A, 63A, and up to 400A, ensuring a fit for a variety of power requirements.

    By Pole Format

    Pole configuration is a critical factor when selecting an industrial power connector. Our offerings include a range of pole formats from simple 2P+E, commonly used for straightforward applications, to more complex configurations like 3P+N+E, which are tailored for more intricate systems requiring multiple phases or additional safety features through extra earth or neutral connections.

    By Current Rating

    The current rating of a connector is a defining feature that determines its suitability for specific applications. RS Components stocks industrial power connectors that support a wide array of current ratings from as low as 3mA for low-power applications to high-capacity connectors capable of handling up to 660A for large-scale industrial machinery.

    By Phase Configuration

    Matching the phase configuration of your industrial setting is essential for compatibility and safety. Our catalogue includes connectors suited for both single-phase and three-phase configurations. Understanding whether your application requires a single-phase, split-phase, or three-phase system will guide you to the correct connector type, ensuring efficiency and reliability.

    Benefits of Power Connectors
