Leviton Introduces LEV Series IEC 60309 Pin & Sleeve Devices

Leviton Introduces LEV Series IEC 60309 Pin & Sleeve Devices

Oct 20, 2020

Leviton has a new line of LEV Series IEC 60309-1 and IEC 60309-2 Pin & Sleeve devices with Inform™ technology manufactured in North America. The launch includes 30 Amp and 60 Amp plugs, connectors, receptacles, inlets, backboxes and mechanical interlocks designed to simplify installation, endure the harshest environments and improve safety and productivity.

Michael Mattei, vice president & general manager, Leviton Commercial & Industrial, said, “These devices are ideal for customers in a variety of industrial environments, including manufacturing, food and beverage processing, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), temporary and portable power applications, mining, entertainment venues and fast-food environments.”

LEV Series pin & sleeve devices are available with Leviton’s new Inform technology. Inform is a technology platform that enables Leviton products to provide real-time product data to the end-user. The Inform technology also provides a range of feature sets which vary according to the specific product within the LEV Series family. The data provided through the platform is ultimately used to improve safety, efficiency and productivity. 

The ability to monitor device health and operating status (also known as condition monitoring) is the foundational principle behind Inform technology. The application of Inform technology on the pin and sleeve devices can be as simple as an on-device warning to users of an abnormal operating condition such as on the plugs and connectors, or as complex as providing device operational data for enabling predictive maintenance programs on the mechanical interlocks. By accessing real-time information about machine health and power quality in both these ways, facility managers and electricians can more quickly address potential hazards to ensure their people and systems are operating safely and efficiently.

Mechanical interlocks monitor individual line-side and load-side voltage values, ground continuity, liquid accumulation and welded or broken contacts via line-of-sight LED indication and remote monitoring via the Inform app.

For use in any environment, LEV Series devices feature higher, more comprehensive and exclusive watertight ratings over the competition, as well as superior construction. All devices are rated to IP66, IP67, industry exclusive IP68 for long-term submersion and IP69K for high-pressure, high temperature washdown. Nickel-plated brass pins and sleeves are self-cleaning, corrosion-resistant and allow for improved insertion and withdrawal. All devices are designed with sanitary conditions in mind without gaps for debris to build up, allowing LEV Series to be one of the only NSF Certified pin & sleeve devices on the market.
