As a specialist for industrial plugs and sockets, MENNEKES presents with X-CONTACT a completely new contact sleeve solution. Innovative, simple, durable and safe.

Industrial connectors and receptacles of 63 A and 125 A are often exposed to the toughest conditions. On construction sites, in mines and tunnels or in heavy industry, they have to operate reliably while often covered in dirt and surface water.

With X-CONTACT, MENNEKES launches a new system, which combines a totally reliable electrical connection with the ultimate in ease of handling.

More Contact

For connectors and receptacles the contact sleeves are essential for the quality of the contact closure.  It is important to achieve the best possible balance between a safe contact closure and ease of insertion. We have successfully implemented this with X-CONTACT in an entirely new way.

Due to a completely new manufacturing process, the X-CONTACT sleeve obtains resilient properties based solely on its material characteristics without the need to use any additional spring elements. Thanks to the shape of the X-CONTACT sleeve, a particularly safe contact closure can be achieved.

Less effort

The special design of the X-CONTACT reduces the effort of insertion and withdrawal. An advantage that simplifies work processes and improves safety especially with high electrical currents.

The special pretreated material, an innovative work process and a new shape ensures that this benefit is achieved even with currents of 63 A and 125 A.  

A glance into the opening of an X-CONTACT sleeve reveals the intelligent functional principle: the X-shaped slot and groove in the inner wall provides four advantages of the new design: innovative, simple, durable and safe. The X principle.

Reliable even under the toughest conditions

The interaction of the resilient material and groove is not only the guarantee for a secure contact closure, it also has the practical side effect that any contamination is removed when connecting and disconnecting the plug. Even surface corrosion is removed by the spring effect of the X-CONTACT sleeves.

For particularly corrosive environments, such as irritant chemical substances like ammonia, we offer the nickel-plated contact sleeves with all their known advantages.
