Arktite® APJ, APR, AR and ARE Series 20A Plugs, Receptacles and Connectors


Arktite® plugs and receptacles are used:

  • To supply power to portable electrically operated devices such as motor-generator sets, compressors, heating and cooling units, welders, conveyors, lighting systems and similar equipment
  • Where temporary power is needed, such as at trailers, building units, heavy machinery
  • Wherever electrical loads must be quickly disconnected from power source

Receptacle Interior Rotated 22 1/2° Optional


  • Circuit breaking: plugs through 100 ampere rating may be disconnected under load; 150-400 ampere units are for service disconnect use only
  • Receptacles accept only plugs of the same amperage rating, style and number of poles, making it impossible to mismate, and provides for positive polarization
  • Extra wide electrical spacing allows for maximum safety
  • Insulator materials are the result of intensive testing; selection has been made based on highest dielectric strength, maximum mechanical and impact resistance, lowest moisture absorption and highest arc tracking resistance
  • A variety of installations is possible due to the availability of several types of back boxes
  • Designed to withstand rough usage and the effects of adverse environments
  • Reversible interiors, 30, 60 and 100 ampere (except 30 and 60 ampere, 5-pole) Arktite plug and receptacle interiors are interchangeable using a screwdriver; this makes it possible to feed a normally de-energized receptacle from an energized plug with usual Arktite safety; no energized contacts are exposed
