    The ultimate solution
    for your insulated panels

    Shelter panel-mount PowerSyntax connectors provide total insulation and watertight protection on the cable-to-connector joints on the back of your panels. The range features two models of thermoplastic insulating backshells that are machined and designed to combine with various contact types. The system includes an IP68 gland for cable strain relief, creating an actual shelter that provides a range of ideally-sized mechanically strong solutions for IP67 watertight seal at the cable-to-contact connection.

    The Standard backshell version can be supplied with Set-screw or Crimp contact terminals for copper cables. The EasiLug backshell is made for our bimetal EasiLug contact, designed to be used with aluminium cables.
