Economy Power Connector
Glass filled high temperature nylon front housing
Polycarbonate rear housing
The construction of the 5266i features an elegant polycarbonate rear housing in theater black with a durable hi-temperature rated front housing. Improvements were made to the Perma-Lock terminations. The faceplate set screws are of stainless steel. Additionally, there is a dust seal to protect the wiring chamber.
The 5266i has been designed to be adaptable to a wide range of power cables. It has a powerful mechanical cord clamp with a removable insert to accommodate cable diameters from 0.300" (7.62mm) to 0.655" (16.63mm). Installation has been further simplified due to clearly marked, tightly-spaced, funnel shaped holes to guide the conductors into the unique Perma-Lock terminals.
The Perma-Lock terminals work in the following way: As the terminal screw tightens down on the contact tang, it compresses the wire underneath the tang, causing the screw to exert an upwards lift of the collar overleaf. This lifting action "locks up" the threads on the screw. Stress-relieving of the terminals is virtually eliminated. Heat cycling and vibration cannot loosen the screw. The real departure the 5266i takes from the traditional IEC lies with the contact elements themselves. Our contacts are large and designed to possess a high grip rate to securely grip the outlet.
