Appleton™ FSQC 30, 60 and 100 Amp Series Receptacles and Powertite™ Plugs

Appleton

FSQC 30, 60 and 100 Amp Series Receptacles incorporate an interlocked disconnect switch for added safety in hazardous environments. The explosionproof and dust-ignitionproof FSQC is designed for use with Powertite™ plugs. Simply insert the plug and rotate the receptacle face to the ON position to lock it in place and energize the receptacle. For installations where different line voltages are used, a special polarization option prevents plug insertion into a receptacle wired for a different voltage.
