Metway Series 166 GE 3 pole plug and socket connectors are fully touchproof in both connected and disconnected positions and can be used as “Appliance Couplers” as required by EN 60 320. It is permitted for these to be engaged and disengaged under load in accordance with VDE 0627 and VDE 0628. They feature industry standard coding to ensure that correct polarity is guaranteed and are designed to simply push in to panels which have preformed rectangular slots. They are fully “touchproof” in both fitted and unfitted positions. The internal connections are for use as screwless connectors, suitable for tinned stranded or solid conductors. Untinned stranded connectors cannot be used with this type.
