Plug In to Multiple Benefits with Legrand's Hypra Prisinter

Designed specifically for use in installations where durability, robustness, connection reliability and safety are of the utmost importance, Legrand’s Hypra Prisinter range of industrial sockets delivers an astonishing collection of end-user benefits.
The compact range features a unique interlocked load break that means the socket will not carry any live power unless the plug is connected. It also removes the need for a separate adjacent isolator, which results in significant savings in terms of installation time, space and money.
This emphasis on safety is also reflected by the lockable nature of all Prisinter socket covers, which when closed deliver IP 55 rated protection, and when used in conjunction with Hypra plugs allow the level of protection to be chosen to suit a particular environment. For example, a Prisinter socket delivers:
• IP 44 with a Hypra IP 44 plug connected
• IP 55 with a Hypra IP 67 / 66-55 angled plug connected
• IP 54 with a Hypra IP 66 / 67-55 straight plug connected
The range also offers great choice and versatility, with all Prisinter sockets available in 16, 32 and 63A ratings; offered in surface mounted and panel mounted options; and available in two materials – plastic and metal.
Caroline Boden, a marketing manager for Legrand’s wiring device division, said: “Hypra Prisinter is used extensively in environments where heat, humidity, dust, impact and chemical products are present, including nuclear, chemical and process industries.”
“It is also popular in high-end user applications, such as steel plants, sports arenas, commercial caterers and the food processing industry. But no matter where it’s installed the feedback we get is excellent - it truly is a range that is appreciated wherever it is installed.”
In addition to Prisinter, Legrand’s Hypra range features a wide variety of plugs, sockets, appliance inlets and combined units, and is available with either IP 44 protection or IP 66 / 67-55 protection, which is particularly suited to severe and humid conditions. It is manufactured as standard in Polyamide 6, but is also available in metal. The plastic units are IK09 rated, while the metal units are IK10 rated.
