Leviton Introduces New Rhino-Hide® Line of Connector Solutions for Heavy Industrial Application

Leviton introduced the new Rhino-Hide® line of heavy industrial series wiring devices, engineered to withstand the most rigorous environments and harshest industrial applications. The new products encompass a variety of solutions including single pole, NEMA and multi-pin connectors. Rhino-Hide® Single Pole Connectors: Serve the purpose of providing temporary electrical power distribution in a variety of applications. The 15/16/18 Series Single Pole Cam Connectors are used in outdoor and indoor applications requiring current carrying capacity of up to 400 amps. The 17/19/22/23 Series Industrial Cam Connectors are most commonly used in shore power and backup power applications requiring up to 690 amps. The 49 Series Single Pole High-Amperage Connectors are ideal for land-based oil drilling rigs and other high-amp power distribution applications requiring a current carrying capacity up to 1,135 amps. All Rhino-Hide® Connectors are color-coded, which allow for quick and visual identification of the circuit and phase connections, with a metal in-line coupler to prevent the separation of the connectors. Superior construction materials and ease of assembly and installation make these the connectors of choice for any temporary power distribution application. Rhino-Hide® NEMA Wiring Devices: Suitable for use in rough service environments, such as marine and offshore, mining and drilling and food processing applications. The submersible devices have the high watertight rating in the industry and feature threaded couplings for high-vibration or extreme stress environments in addition to anti-corrosive coatings for extreme weather resistance and high temperature and high pressure washdown resistance. The receptacle offers many features including a standard FS/FD mount, stainless steelhardware for maximum integrity, nickel-plated brass electrical contacts for superior electrical performance and wire pigtails for simplified installation. Additionally, the plug/connector offers a high-performance TPV body capable of withstanding extreme temperatures, machined aluminum threaded components for superior corrosion and abrasion resistance, an industry exclusive variable adjust watertight strain relief system and a tethered connector cover for superior strength. Rhino-Hide® Multi-Pin Connectors: Designed for power and control connections throughout oil and gas drilling rigs, including top drives, SCR houses, instrumentation and control systems. The connectors allow for ease of engagement and disengagement, the housing of different types of contacts, a wide range of allowable contact voltages and currents, ease of environmental sealing and rugged mechanical performance. The black nickel plating provides superior corrosion resistance and conductivity, better grounding and shielding and reduces the chances of dangerous electrical current buildup on the connector shell.

Leviton Launches Next Generation Workplace Electric Vehicle Charging Pedestals

Leviton announced the launch of the next generation of electric vehicle charging station pedestals for workplace environments. The new pedestal system integrates Leviton's industry-first Evr-Green 32-amp electric vehicle charging station with a very affordable pedestal system, equipped to provide single or dual electric vehicle mounting options to allow users to charge two vehicles per pedestal. Constructed of durable powder coated steel, Leviton's EV pedestal system provides ideal applications for either indoor or outdoor use. The electric vehicle charging station pedestal system features Leviton's proprietary charge coupler docking system that conveniently keeps the connector off of the ground while the cord effortlessly wraps around the charging station. Both the charging station and charge connector can be locked to prevent unauthorized use. The pedestal is proudly made in the United States and is fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Leviton's electric vehicle charging station pedestals are well-suited for a variety of applications, including auto dealerships, car rental agencies, city and township municipalities, healthcare facilities, educational institutions and any commercial or multi-dwelling unit (MDU) setting.

Leviton Announces Enterprise-Grade Plug-and-Play IT/AV Systems

Leviton unveiled industry-first IT/AV systems that combine category-rated structured cabling with audiovisual signal extenders over HDBaseT™ certified links, creating plug-and-play solutions with no programming required. The enterprise-grade systems allow contractors to extend AV signals over twisted-pair cabling with the same tools used for installing datacom infrastructure. They can then test and certify the installation to Ethernet standards to ensure high-signal performance after they leave the jobsite. Leviton IT/AV Systems include: HDBaseT-certified HDMI® signal extenders, and VGA and USB signal extenders — These end-to-end extenders support interactive white boards, large-screen displays and projectors without the need for any programming, making them easy to set up. HDMI Cables — Commercial-grade Leviton HDMI cables are CL2-rated for in-wall use and feature an optional Cable Lock Kit to secure the HDMI connectors, creating reliable long-term connections in permanent installations. Cat 6A twisted-pair cabling infrastructure — Using Leviton tool-free Atlas-X1™ QuickPort® Connectors, Atlas-X1 SlimLine Boot Patch Cords and Berk-Tek small-diameter LANmark™-XTP Cable, contractors can ensure high performance and protection from alien crosstalk. Multimedia Outlet System (MOS) — This popular front-loading system creates a consistent look and feel for all AV and network connections at the wallplate. It includes new XLR and speakON® modules, a pass-through module for transitioning cable through walls, and Stainless Steel Wallplates that are ideal for schools and public venues.
