New Ship/Shore Power Connectors From J o y - Literature Available

Connecting and disconnecting docked ships to shore-generated power is now faster, safer, and easier thanks to rugged new ship/ shore connectors recently introduced by Joy M a n u f a c t u r i ng Company, LaGrange, N.C. The Joy ship/shore three-phase connector offers several important features. It can handle currents up to 500 amperes per phase, continuous, and has a rating of 450 volts. An optional built-in power shut-off switch can w i t h s t a nd even the most harsh operating conditions, including rain, salt spray, humidity, and sunlight. It meets MIL-C-24368 in both the properly mated and unmated conditions.

Joy ship/shore receptacles were designed to prevent contact misalignment and use a strain relief with an interlocking safety switch. The receptacle withstands shock (Type A, Grade A, Class 1 of Mil-S-901C) and v i b r a t i on (Type 1 of Mil-Std-167), and features a reinforced ribbed housing for added strength.
