EPEXC-150-3X20A-12-3 Explosion Proof extension cord allows operators to safely
extend the range of their explosion proof light or equipment cords beyond the
boundaries of the hazardous work area. These units are constructed of 150
feet of 12/3 SOOW explosion proof cord rated at 20 amps of continuous service.
The cord is chemical and abrasion resistant and comes with an explosion proof
receptacle installed on one end and an explosion proof plug installed on the
other end. We also include an extra matching plug for operators to attach to
their equipment which allows them to avoid any issues with plug and receptacle
equipment compatibility with this cord.
The three 20 amp power receptacles are constructed of non sparking
aluminum and finished with an epoxy powder coating while the housing is
constructed of triple coated malleable iron for durability and added corrosion
resistance. The internal receptacle plug contacts are constructed of brass and
designed to maintain constant pressure along their entire length for superior
connectivity. The plug receptacle is deeply recessed to prevent accidental
contacts and designed for twist lock plug insertion to provide secure
connections. A neoprene seal fitted inside the connector receptacle seals
against the plug when inserted to provide positive sealing against water
ingress. A spring loaded receptacle door provides an automatic weather-tight
seal when the plug is removed. In standard installations within the hazardous
location area, threaded rigid pipe is brought to the outlet and the outlet is
affixes to a mounting surface.
plugs on these units are of a twist lock design. In order for a secure and
working connection to take place, the operator must insert the plug and twist
until it locks into place. This ensures a safe seal is made before any sparks
from electrical contact can take place. To ensure the highest safety, operators
should make connections outside of the hazardous area.
Inter-Compatibility: The plugs on these cords will work
with non-explosion proof standard receptacles (NEMA 5-20R, 5-20R, or 6-20R) and
standard wall outlets, however, they must be used with explosion proof rated
outlets to retain their explosion proof rating. The included plugs and
receptacle are cross-interchangeable with Crouse Hind™ part# ENPENP5201 plugs
and receptacles and Hubble-Killiark part# UGP-20231 ACCEPTOR® plugs and
receptacles. Any equipment requiring these C-H or H-B plugs should work with
these cords. Due to possible manufacturer changes we cannot guarantee
interchangability although we have made every effort to ensure cross
Suggested Applications: Manufacturing, Industrial,
Warehouse, Lighting, Explosion Proof Light Fixtures, Grinders, Wet areas or
Locations Where Combustible Dust is Present.
