Pin and sleeve..

Al Rettich:
Looking for a bit of help. A local amphitheater is upgrading their power to a 100a three phase, from 60a single phase. City is requiring a pin and sleeve connector. I'm having an extremely hard time finding a five wire cable that will hold 100a three phase (five wire). Is that cable called a certain name?

TIA

Brian Bolly:
The Hubbell part number for the wall/panel mount outlet is: HBL5100R9W

Replace the "R" with "P" or "C" for the cable mount Plug (Male) and Connector (Female), respectively.  This link should give you more info.

Be sure you're sitting down when you look at the connector pricing.

In my experience the largest 5W single jacket cable you can get is for 60A. For 100A you need individual conductors. I have seen CEE form connectors with 5 individual cables, but I don't know if it's legal. 100A 3 is usually CamLok (which may be described as pin and sleeve).

Try SOOW Portable cable. https://www.showmecables.com/2-awg-5-conductor-600v-stranded-conductor-soow-portable-cord-per-foot?msclkid=a3df37098e2718f62b1456ec6e5f3b6f&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=(ROI)%20Shopping%20-%20New&utm_term=4577266909614334&utm_content=Bulk%20Wire%20%26%20Cable

I posted too quickly. Without my NEC available I can't verify sizing or ratings of cables/insulation, but a search of the net indicated that the SOOW 2awg 5wire used on 3phase would not be rated for 100amps. When I am at the shop tomorrow I am going to read a little to get updated on the subject.

There are other insulation types of portable power cables that would fit, but again I would want my copy of the NEC in front of me to verify.

Helge A Bentsen:
I've used 125A/240v 3ph+E CEE-form connectors wired with 4x35mm2 cable, and 125A/400V 3ph0E+N with 5x35mm2.
I believe that is 2awg in the US.
So it should be available, if it's legal per your code.
