Russellstoll® Interconnection Systems by Thomas & Betts (T&B) has combined its product line with the ABB Industrial Plugs and Sockets product line to enhance T&B’s industrial connector selection.
Facilitated by ABB’s acquisition of T&B last year, the consolidation of the two lines creates one of the market’s most comprehensive selections of explosion-proof, heavy and light industrial, moisture- and corrosion-resistant plugs, sockets, connectors and receptacles, which range from 20 to 600 Amps.
"The consolidation results in a complete selection of interconnection solutions for light- and heavy- industrial markets,” said Chad Smith, Global Product Group Manager.
“In addition to the breadth of our product offering, the scale of production enables us to ship most parts from stock, with a typical one- to two-week lead time.
Thomas & Betts proprietary pin-and-sleeve products will be branded as Russellstoll® Interconnection Systems, which reflects more than 20 years of the line’s premium brand equity for innovative solutions in light- and heavy-industrial applications. ABB Industrial pin-and-sleeve products, also known as IEC Plugs and Sockets, in reference to their compliance with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60309 standards, will continue to capitalize on the reputation of the catalog’s ABB brand in the global industrial market.
