Reliability and Safety
Lewden uses quality raw materials to produce products which suit the arduous conditions in which you expect them to operate.
We are careful to select the right materials and to design produts which will give you:
- excellent impact resistance
- strength and rigidity
- resistance to various chemicals
- resistance to abrasion
- resistance to tracking
- excellent electrical contact
- ample wiring space
- excellent breaking capacity
Lewden’s basic range of IEC 60309-2 plugs and sockets have been tested and certified (kitemarked) by the British Standards Institute Certification Service under the CCA scheme. All the other international test houses subscribe to this scheme and agree to accept each others certification subject only to any national deviations, which are very rare.
All Lewden IEC 60309-2 products rated 16A and 32A pass an impact test of 1 Joule which is the same impact as an IK 06 rating. 63A and 125A products pass an impact test at 2 Joules, equivalent to IK 07. The IK test is carried out at room temperature whereas the IEC 60309-2 test is carried out at -25°C, which is much more demanding.
