New Brochure Describes Joy Mfg. Ship/Shore Power Connectors

Rugged new ship/shore connectors that make connecting and d i s c o n n e c t i n g docked ships to shore-generated power easier and faster are detailed in a new brochure brochure being offered by Joy Manufacturing Company, LaGrange, N.C. The new Joy three-phase connectors are said to offer several important features. They can handle currents up to 500 amps per phase, continuous, and have a voltage rating of 450 volts. An optional built-in power shut-off switch can withstand even the most harsh operating conditions, including rain, salt spray, humidity, and sunlight. They meet MILC- 24368 in both the properly mated and unmated conditions.

According to the brochure, 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 vibration (Type 1 of MIL-Std-167) and features a reinforced ribbed housing for added strength. The fourpage publication also features connector dimensions, assembly d i m e n s i o n s , and mounting requirements and d i a g r a m s f or each.
