Benefits of Pin and Sleeve Connectors over Twist Lock
You’re likely familiar with twist lock cable connectors—they’re the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard. However, there’s a lesser-known advanced cable connector that’s common in Europe, but has yet to find its place in the United States: the pin and sleeve connector.
In a nutshell, pin and sleeve connectors seal power connections and insulate power delivery from moisture, grime and chemicals. They’re designed to prevent disconnecting under load, and are often used for applications with abusive environments. Pin and sleeve devices range from metal-housed products to high impact-resistant plastic products with varying designs.
