Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems Expands Single Pole Device Offering
Monday, July 31, 2017

Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems has expanded its line of Single Pole Devices, adding Series 18 (ball nose) connectors for use on welding connections and indoor and outdoor temporary electrical power distribution applications. The devices feature a UL Type 4X environmental rating, which makes them suitable for extreme outdoor conditions.


Available in 300 and 400 Amps, 600V AC/250V DC, Series 18 devices are cULus listed for use in the United States and Canada, and are compatible with all competitive products. They are available in eight colors: black, blue, brown, green, orange, red, white, and yellow.


Fast assembly/disassembly is also possible thanks to a smooth inner core and special non-metallic retaining screw that requires fewer turns than other connectors on the market. A ribbed thermoplastic elastomer body design helps the user maintain a firm hold when plugging and unplugging the device.


“Hubbell’s Series 18 Single Pole Devices are not only used for welding connections,” says Roy Itzler, director of industrial marketing for Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems, “they’re also commonly used in the Canadian broadcasting industry for temporary power distribution.”
