Proud to stock the original, genuine PowerLock range of High Power Cable Connectors.
PowerLock connectors are plastic bodied single pole connectors for use in high power, low voltage applications. With current ratings of either 400amp or 660amp, the connectors are keyed to prevent connections with the wrong line, and colour coded to meet Australian & New Zealand standards.
Typical applications for PowerLock include three phase motors, generators, load banks and lighting distribution panels. PowerLock connectors serve a very diverse industry base which includes outdoor concerts, carnivals, sporting events, television outdoor broadcast, theatres, electricity supply companies and many heavy industrial environments such as construction.
Unmated, the connectors are rated IP2X for protection against finger touching of live electrical parts and when mated are sealed to IP67. Body styles include those for panel mounting or for fitting to a wide range of copper cables up to 120mm² for screw termiation, and 300mm² for crimp termination. A selection of accessories are available to enhance the range.

Fuse carriers with integrated PowerLock connectors provide a safe & efficient connection to a power distribution board.
The connectors are easy to terminate to copper cable using either industry standard crimp tools or set-screw contacts. The silver-plated contacts are available in 2 continuous current ranges, those with brass contacts are suitable for use up to 400 amps and those with copper contacts up to 660 amps. The high impact plastic connector bodies are keyed to prevent connection errors, and colour coded to suit 3 phase electrical systems that are used in New Zealand.
Secure coupling of a connector pair is through a bayonet lock together with a secondary locking pin. The secondary lock engages when the bayonet lock is fully turned and disconnection requires a simple release key. The secondary lock discourages tampering and reduces the risk of accidental or unauthorised disconnection. If fast disconnection is required, for an application where tampering is not a risk, the connectors can be fitted with a sliding collar that quickly unlocks the connectors.
