ID this connector?
« on: March 22, 2024, 03:44:23 AM »

Just did a site visit at a new-to-me events center, and they have a pair of these receptacles outside.  I've never seen them before; they don't appear to have a NEMA marking.  Has anyone used them?

Edit: The link below is similar but not a correct match. Sorry for posting this in a hurry and making a mistake.

Over 600 USD$ for ONE plug?
OK, it's a Hubble, but really?
Guess I need more, better customers to afford to add that to my Tye-In kit.....

The plug in the link is not the plug that mates to that receptical. The key ways and pin spacing looks wrong. That said I can't point you to the correct plug.

I actually have that Hubble pin sleeve plug that is in the link, found it on Ebay for far less, needed it for a series of jobs about 10 years ago and haven't used it since.

Chris.

When you need a waterproof connection, that what it costs.  And government LOVES to use those.  Different than the OP's connector though.

Found it.

Wait, that was the 30 amp version.

Here's the 60 amp one.

Thanks.  Seems pretty esoteric.  The facilities manager at the location said they'd never used them and didn't have any kind of breakout box to go with.  Sigh...

I'd want to get multi-meter on this outlet, if you want to use it, before buying or building a bistro :).  If it's never been used it may not be live.

ALWAYS meter new plugs, especially non standard ones.  You would be surprised how often even regularly used plugs are miswired.  It isn't often an issue when using just one, but when you use multiples in different areas things can go poof quickly.

I know a place and I'm certain it was never changed but they had/have two standard 50 amp range outlets 14-50R wired with three phase!

Peter, I may have a used plug if you need it. It looks similar to some floor outlets that I used to run into at a hotel ballroom.

Also, in the past I worked in heavy equipment shops that used that type connector on all the big welders.

One of my local hotels used to use connectors for electrical service that was not actually used, think of a 480V 3 phase twist lock, on all their internal distribution systems in the ballrooms.  The did this so any power connections would have to be provided by the hotel and billed to the client.  The breakout panels were equally janky (Code? What's a Code?).  The building was owned by a division of a local government agency but managed by a "brand you've heard of", and when *someone* called the County's building inspection (and city fire department), shit got fixed and a whole bunch of other electrical problems were addressed.  I heard from building engineering that it cost the managing company around $100k to fix all the problems they'd created.

Doesn't surprise me a bit from my experience with a large managing company; not sad they got their hand slapped.
