A Safe Connection: New Macey’s New and Improved Electrical Plug for Underground Mining

Safety and innovation combine in the New Macey 60amp restrained plug featuring an all-new bolted design. The plug replaces the threaded design released in 2015 and introduces a new, sophisticated bolt design that fastens the plug body with earth cable to the centre unit, ensuring the parts remain secure even under high tension.

Part of New Macey’s range of blast-proof, flameproof and waterproof plugs and receptacles, it features:

  • Durable, stainless steel construction that can withstand rugged and demanding environmental conditions
  • Compact design that improves on the intuitive design of the threaded release
  • Grub screw design with solderless and crimpless thimbles that increases efficiency, boasting the fastest make-off time in the industry
  • Three-bolted clamp arrangement with the best pull force of any 60amp plug on the market
  • Unique sealing resin coating prevents water from contacting the earth wire
  • Seamless earthing system
  • Easy to order single part numbers

Ideal for use in underground pumping applications for mining and tunnelling, the 60amp plug from New Macey is a significant improvement in safety and innovation while keeping with the intuitive design and high-quality components that has become synonymous with the New Macey name.
