Pin and Sleeve
As an authorized Leviton distributor, OneStopBuy.com offers access to the full line of Leviton Pin and Sleeve devices. We sell both North American devices, which are UL Rated IEC 60309-1 and IEC 60309-2, and a more recent line of International products that are EN/IEC and CE/NOM Rated. These industrial-grade Pin and Sleeve products have been constructed to generate top performance that is problem-free and reliable even in tough environments.
The ruggedly built housings of these products are capable of resisting damage from heat and flame, impacts, and corrosion from chemicals. In addition, they are equipped with contacts and pins that have superior corrosion resistance and performance in demanding electrical applications. Leviton’s complete Pin and Sleeve line is made up of plugs, connectors, receptacles, inlets, and mechanical interlocks. All of these devices carry environmental ratings of IP67 watertight, IP44 splash proof, and ratings for ampacity that range from 16 Amps to 125 Amps.
The North American Pin and Sleeve variety is noted for a number of important features. To begin with, their housing is made from Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), which provides these products with the highest level of protection against corrosion and increases their resistance to vulnerabilities from extreme heat, abuse, and impact suffered from outside influences.
Another feature is the terminal screws, which are zinc-plated on Pin and Sleeve devices rated at 20 Amps through 60 Amps and made of stainless steel on 100 Amp devices. The contact carriers on these devices are capable of withstanding arcing and warding against too much internal heat buildup, especially with pin and contact carriers that are built with reinforced nylon to improve temperature resistance and endurance.
Aside from this, the North American Pin and Sleeve connectors’ brass construction with multiple points of contact makes for much more reliable electrical connection and improved conductivity, as well as an increased length of life. Where cables enter Pin and Sleeve devices, their watertight grommet made of chloroprene provides an accurately measured and reliable seal. The various terminals for ground, neutral and phase are easy to identify because of either clear letters and numbers or color coding in multiple areas.
Leviton also offers an International-rated model available in 16, 32, 63 and 125 Amp configurations with IP44 splashproof and IP66/IP67 watertight and dust-tight protection ratings. As devices compliant with IEC 60309-1 and 60309-2, they are intended for use in applications outside of the North American continent where different Amperage and voltage designs need to be accommodated. Similarly to the other variety, they feature a rubber gland at the place where cable is inserted in order to provide a reliable, watertight seal. Strain relief is made possible by a locking grip, while a body construction of halogen-free polymer creates higher levels of resilience and improves environmental safety. Ultimately, the spring clip connection in 16 Amp and 32 Amp configurations of Leviton’s International Pin and Sleeve plugs and connectors helps to speed up their assembly.
All North American and International Pin and Sleeve devices are backed by Leviton’s limited two-year warranty, which OneStopBuy.com honors and supports for all our customers. We are proud to be your one-stop-shop for all Leviton products.
