Power Plug Connectors

Phoenix Contact's Power Plug Connectors with capacity of 41 Amps, Unrestricted 600V UL approval - Power PC 5 connector

Phoenix Contact's PC 5 connector family now comes in a more compact design. The dimensions are 15% smaller than the original design, while maintaining the same high-performance data of the original PC 5 connector.
