Lex Products has expanded its EverGrip line with a molded stage pin extension that leverages proprietary design, construction and materials to deliver unmatched usability, performance and endurance. To further advance stage pin performance and extension longevity, the EverGrip Molded Stage Pin Extension is available with a male connector safety shroud that offers even greater protection against connector pin damage.
Lex Products developed the EverGrip Molded Stage Pin Extension and safety shroud in response to industry research, which revealed crushed and bent pins were the primary cause of stage pin connector failure, resulting in poor connections between male and female devices.
Exclusive Safety Shroud for Extra Connector Pin Protection: The spring-loaded shroud features a lock button that fastens the shroud in the forward position to prevent damage to pins, or in the retracted position for easy mating with panel mount receptacles. A separate connector lock button fastens male and female inline connectors together when mated to prevent accidental disconnection.
Proprietary Construction: The new EverGrip Molded Stage Pin Extensions, available in 60 and 100 Amp ratings, contain thermoset resin contact carriers, which resist electrical tracking and can withstand higher temperatures caused by overload or arcing. Lex Products' exclusive premold design bonds the cable and connector together to deliver superior strain relief and secure terminations. An impact resistant thermoplastic elastomer overmold prevents internal damage to pins and contacts and is insulated for safe handling.
Designed for Ease of Use and Extended Cable Life: An exclusive, ergonomic, tapered hand grip provides a firm gripping surface for easy connector mating and unmating. The extension's rugged, one-piece connector construction inhibits infiltration of contaminants and eliminates joints and loose assembly screws. A UV-stabilized thermoplastic elastomer exterior prevents connector housing degradation when used outdoors.
Availability: Lex Products plans to start shipping its new EverGrip Molded Stage Pin Extensions this summer.
