Shelton, CT (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Lex Products has developed the new EverGrip® Molded Stage Pin Extension, the first-ever overmolded stage pin cable extension. This proprietary design, construction and material delivers unmatched product performance and helps to resolve the longtime industry problems of damaged housings and ineffective cable strain reliefs, which can loosen with rough treatment. The new EverGrip® Molded Stage Pin Extensions are also the first-ever cULus Listed stage pin assemblies. Each extension is additionally high potential tested to 1500 VAC prior to shipping to ensure compliance.
Mike Scala, President of Lex Products Corp. said, “Molded stage pin extensions are designed specifically to meet a growing concern in the entertainment industry.” He added, “Each extension is high potential tested and cULus Listed to ensure that EverGrip® Molded Stage Pin Extensions deliver longevity, durability and reliability, endure rough treatment and prevent connectors from loosening over time.”
EverGrip® Molded Stage Pin Extensions feature a thermoset resin contact carrier, which resists electrical tracking and can withstand higher temperatures, caused by overload or arcing. The 100 Amp extensions are available in 125 VAC and 250 VAC ratings. The 60 Amp extensions are available in 125 VAC. The 125 VAC version features a black overmold and the 250 VAC version features an all-yellow overmold for easy voltage identification.
The EverGrip® Difference – Proprietary Construction for Enhanced Safety:
Lex Products’ proprietary EverGrip® premold design bonds the cable and connector together to deliver superior strain relief and maintain secure terminations. An impact-resistant thermoplastic elastomer overmold is insulated for safe handling. The EverGrip® design strengthens cable assemblies to help ensure long cable life.
Unique Design for Ease of Use and Extended Cable Life:
The EverGrip® Molded Stage Pin connectors feature an ergonomic, tapered hand grip providing a firm gripping surface for easy mating and unmating. The extension’s rugged, one-piece connector construction inhibits infiltration of contaminants and eliminates joints and loose assembly screws. UV stabilized thermoplastic elastomer exterior protects connector housing in outdoor applications.
Lex Products offers a cable retrofit service program to deliver greater customer value in the form of extended cable life and long-term cost-savings. Customers can lengthen the life of their existing inventory of stage pin extensions by retrofitting existing cable assemblies with EverGrip® molded connectors, which carry a 1-year limited warranty. Lex Products also provides a range of diagnostic services including evaluation and testing.
