MELVILLE, N.Y., June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton is excited to announce that the Leviton® line of Rhino-Hide® NEMA Wiring Devices has been named a 2016 Product of the Year Category Winner by Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) Magazine for Connectors and Terminating Devices.
Recognized in EC&M's April/May 2016 special supplement, the Rhino-Hide family of NEMA wiring devices are a series of industrial grade NEMA configured plugs, connectors and receptacles specially designed for extreme environments. Specifically, these devices hold the highest watertight ratings of any device in their class – submersible (IP68) and suitable for high pressure, high temperature washdowns (IP69K) – and are constructed of coated aluminum with nickel-plated brass contacts and black oxide coated stainless steel assembly screws for superior corrosion resistance.
"Leviton greatly appreciates recognition from EC&M for our Rhino-Hide NEMA wiring devices," said Michael Mattei, Vice President and General Manager of Leviton's Commercial and Industrial Business Unit. "We are proud to develop long-lasting, reliable products that give our customers confidence in their electrical connections, especially in areas with high vibration, increased strain and prolonged exposure to weather and chemicals."
Leviton Rhino-Hide NEMA wiring devices are available in seven voltage/amperage configurations and are compatible with standard NEMA configured devices.
