DUO Switched & Interlocked

MENNEKES Elektrotechnik GmbH & Co.

Machines and systems work day and night, conveyor belts are moving and cranes handle heavy materials: container harbours and shipyards, mining plants, food industries and factories are constantly busy. A reliable electrical current plays an essential part in smooth and cost-effective operations. This is where our completely revised, switched and interlocked DUO wall mounted sockets come in. Available in 16 A and 32 A versions.

Convenient and time-saving installation

The enclosure base can be rotated through 180 degrees – allowing flexible use the of M32 cable gland to bring the supply cable in from the top or bottom as required. The base also has four sealed cable entries with different pre-installed threads (three M25 and one M32). You simply push out the grommet of the desired entry for easy termination. This way the wall socket stays airtight and secure. You can also purchase sturdy glands for M32 and M25 cables as accessories from us.

The mounting plate is removable for an easy installation. Socket and switch disconnector are on the mounting plate and come prewired. All components can be quickly fitted to the wall. You can also easily remove the mounting plate with the socket and switch as a single unit at any time, for example to place them on a firm surface for maintenance work.

Our switched and interlocked DUO wall mounted sockets have four captive combination head screws with quick-screw double thread and interior drive ratchet. This lets you quickly and easily open and close the enclosure using an Allen key or flat-tip screwdriver. The combination head screws are made of plastic and therefore considerably more durable than metal screws.

Safe and easy operation

Whether you‘re an electrician who installs and services sockets, or a user, the safe and easy installation and operation of sockets is essential. Our DUO wall mounted sockets deliver safety and convenience in two ways:

DUO lock 1: Our DUO wall mounted sockets integrate a switch disconnector with an easy-to-grip rotary switch. If there’s no plug connected, it’s always in the “OFF” position. It’s only possible to connect or disconnect a plug when the switch is in its “OFF” position – for your own safety.

DUO lock 2: When a plug is in the socket, you can turn the switch to „ON“. This mechanically locks the socket to prevent the plug from being pulled out when it‘s carrying a live current. The result is safe, reliable power flow for your equipment and machines.

If you want an additional level of safety, you can attach a lockout/tagout padlock to the DUO wall socket. This prevents accidental switching to “ON” position – even when a plug is connected – protecting you while performing service or maintenance work.

Effortlessly connect and disconnect with X-CONTACT®

The DUO wall mounted socket features our X-CONTACT® contact sleeve technology. The sleeves, which are made of a resilient flexible material, are slotted in an X pattern. When a plug is inserted, its pin expands the opening in the contact sleeve. The plug and receptacle are thus securely joined. It‘s also especially easy to connect and disconnect a plug – as much as 50% less force is required.

Our DUO wall mounted sockets are equipped with a pimpled rubberised hinged cap and deliver IP67 ingress protection. It‘s extremely easy to grab and hold, even in moist or wet conditions, for easy opening and closing. The socket‘s hinged cap is easy to open and close for comfortable use and reliable operation without mishaps. It opens upward instead of toward the wall. This prevents collisions with connected cables and cable glands.

Robust and durable

The enclosure of our DUO wall mounted sockets are made of high-quality plastic. They are available in your choice of material: engineering thermoplastic or plastic that is resistant to chemical attack. The plastics used are break- and impact-resistant, highly electrically insulating, and impervious to heat and cold. The special plastic also provides protection from aggressive substances such as chemicals, oils, fats, alkaline, and saltwater.

Depending on the version, our DUO wall mounted sockets have IP44 or IP67 ingress protection and foamed seals. This reliably protects them from water spray, dust, and penetration by small foreign bodies and water. This way you get a product that is extremely robust and weatherproof and will perform reliably for many years.

The bases of our wall mounted sockets have standard dimensions that match those of the older DUO models. You can easily replace your existing DUO wall mounted sockets with new models.
