Raxton Exd/Exe Stopping Plugs

Raxton's comprehensive range of Exd/Exe Stopping Plugs are designed to close any unused entries in electrical equipment without revoking existing certification.

The range covers five design types:-new Exd stop plugs

Tamperproof Plug Type CF
Tamperproof Plugs are inserted from the outside with the Allen key towards the enclosure and then tightened from the inside to leave a flush finish to prevent unauthorised removal.

RX Plug Type CB
RX Plugs are inserted with the Allen key pointing away from the box and tightened from the outside.

Hexagon Head Plug Type CK
Hexagon Headed Plugs are inserted from the outside and fastened by means of a spanner. They can be fitted with a washer to increase the IP rating of the assembly.

Dome Head Plug Type CQ
Can be offered as an alternative to the Hexagon Headed version.

Hollow Hexagon Head Plug Type CY
A hollow version of the Hexagon Head Plug but still with Exd/Exe certification.

Following the basic rules in line with good engineering practice Raxton Stopping Plugs should be inserted directly into the unused entry and not into a thread Reducer or thread Adaptor.
