The Safe, Flexible Installation

Office buildings, stands at fairs or big stores: in all applications where flexibility, safety and cost efficiency is a priority, our installation system AC 166® is the ultimate solution. Constantly increasing labour costs make the labour time needed to connect common installation materials a costly element of the project. The AC 166® system reduces these costs to a minimum. Components within luminaires, devices and sockets, pre-assembled cables and distributors permit a continuous "plug and play" installation. Laborious cutting to length and stripping as well as connecting by conventional installation material can thus be waived.

Safe plug and socket connectors with or without interlocking reduce failure rate to a minimum. Time consuming reworking is no longer necessary.

AC 166® G and AC 166® Classic

he AC 166® G series is the succeeding model to the prior system AC 166® Classic. The AC 166® G series complies with the more rigid requirements of the EN 60320 standard with regards to protection against electric shock from the mains connection of the socket.

Quick Delivery Program - AC 166® Cables

Short-term supply of components is of particular importance for flexible installation. Adels-Contact, manufacturer of the installation system AC 166®, has responded to that need with an adapted stock sourcing and production planning.
The timely supply of cord sets presents a particular challenge seeing that neither all lengths nor all types of cables and connectors can be stored. For that special need, Adels offers quick delivery program.

Protection against incorrect Plugging

All installation plug connectors of the AC 166® G series are fully protected against incorrect plugging, f.i.
  • plugging rotated by 180°
  • one pole plugging
  • plugging of different nos. of poles
  • plugging shifted aside

Installation Notes

Connecting and disconnecting under load is possible in compliance with EN 60320 and EN 61984. According to EN 61535 installation couplers are intended to be connected without load only. When used in easily accessible areas it is stipulated to use locking pins that may be removed by auxiliary tool only. Compliance with the EN 61535 standard does not guarantee hazardavoiding non-interchangeability with connecting systems of various manufacturers. Current rating depends on conductor cross-sections resp. on track dimensions. Our connecting system shall not be used as replacement for the national household connector and socket system.

Plug and Socket Connectors 160 / 163

he economic solution in the field of plug and socket connectors up to 16 A / 400 V is our 160/163 series. Its full range of no. of ways up to 12 screw terminals, available with our without wire protector, as well as different polyamides for either high temperatures or continuous thermal load allow unlimited application of the 160/163 series when making luminaire connection and appliances connection.
