UTS threaded receptacles are the latest addition to Souriau’s UTS connector series. They are for industrial applications such as junction boxes and even variable-speed drives on induction motors. The connectors can replace conventional cable glands.
Ninety percent of connections on induction motor relays are made via cable glands – fittings that secure and seal cables to junction boxes – instead of connectors. The Souriau UTS threaded receptacles make installation and maintenance easier. For instance, it was previously necessary to open a junction box, make the necessary connections, close the box and fit a cable gland. Now you just have to connect and disconnect the box.
UTS threaded receptacles are available in five layouts and three sizes (10, 14, and 18) and can be used to carry signals, or power, or both. They come in three thread standards – M (metric), Pg (Panzergewinde) and NPT (National Pipe Thread) – for compatibility with any range or wiring standard in Europe, the USA, Japan, and elsewhere.
UTS threaded receptacles withstand harsh environments and are UL 1977 and UL 94-V0 (fire and smoke) approved, UV resistant, and IP68/69K rated.
