Outdoor Company Switch Series 16 Cam-Lok Receptacle – Type 3R

Series 16 SafeCam® Receptacles – Type 3R
Series 16 SafeCam® receptacles mate with standard series 16 devices and include the additional safety and risk aversion the SafeCam® System provides. The SafeCam® System monitors the Series 16 SafeCam® receptacles and prevents the main circuit breaker for being closed if there is an exposed receptacle and automatically opens the main circuit breaker if a plug is removed under load. Series 16 SafeCam® receptacles are rated for 400 Amps, color coded, and mounted on the receptacle panel at bottom of the enclosure. The combination of the Series 16 SafeCam® receptacles and the SafeCam® system reduce the risk of injury and liability making them perfect for electric power distribution in locations such as theatre, convention centers, arenas, schools, churches, and events centers where the general public may be present .
