In the blog post written earlier in June this year, we talked about the new addition to the HEAVYCON Complete family – HEAVYCON modular. Today, we would like to go in depth and tell you more about HEAVYCON Complete.
First, let me give you a brief introduction on heavy duty connector. It consists of a pair of contact inserts and the housing which is made up of a base and a hood. In Phoenix Contact, HEAVYCON comes in 3 different models to suit your different requirements.
Uniquely Phoenix Contact! HEAVYCON EVO is specially designed for users who are unable to determine direction of the cable entry. By simply twisting the special bayonet gland, the direction of the cable entry can be changed as desire. Furthermore, the special bayonet gland comes in 4 different sizes ranging from M20 to M40 that fit all the HEAVYCON EVO housings. This basically means that you can save up to 70% of the logistic cost when you’re using various sizes of the housings.
HEAVYCON Standard comes in 2 parts- a panel mounting base and a hood. Like HEAVYCON EVO, HEAVYCON Standard can be plugged and unplugged easily without the use of additional tools. A huge array of different combination is available depending on your needs, be it single latch, double latches or box mounting (where no panel cut out is required). All our metal housings are made of AlSi12 aluminium which is seawater resistant. Thus, suitable for marine application
Instead of panel mounting base like HEAVYCON EVO and Standard, HEAVYCON Advance uses panel mounting flange which reduces the height of the connector. Need higher IP rating? HEAVYCON Advance is IP69K rated which means that it is dust tight and is able to withstand powerful high temperature water jet.
HEAVYCON Connection Technologies
From the most widely used, screw connection and crimp connection to push-in connection technology that’s uniquely Phoenix Contact. Our HEAVYCON connectors come with a wide array of connection technology that will suit individual needs.
Rugged and All-weather
Last but not least, HEAVYCON plastic connectors are tested in accordance with numerous national and international standards. They are definitely as rugged as the metal connectors.

Surge Protective Devices Must Meet Standards
Surge protective devices (SPDs) must provide defined protective functions and performance parameters in order to be suitable for use in corresponding protection concepts. As such, they are developed, tested, and classified according to their own international series of product standards.
Surge protective devices connected to low-voltage power systems are subjected to the requirements and test methods specified by the latest IEC/EN 61643-11 International Standard.
A true mark of quality is a product certification and approval from an independent testing institute. This confirms the fulfillment of the latest state-of-art product standard to ensure highest safety and integrity of the SPDs. The regulatory requirements placed on SPDs often require highly complex tests that only a few testing laboratories in the world are fully capable of carrying out.
How do you know?
The quality and performance of surge protective devices are hard for a customer to assess. Correct functioning can only be tested in suitable laboratories. Besides the external appearance and haptics, only the technical data provided by the manufacturer can provide any guidance. Even more important is a reliable statement from the manufacturer & certification/approval regarding the performance of the SPD and the execution of the tests specified in the respective product standard from series IEC 61643.
Safe Energy Control (SEC) SPD
In line with the revision of the most recent IEC/EN 61643-11 International Standard, the latest range of Safe Energy Control (SEC) SPDs from Phoenix Contact is furnished with independent certifications (i.e. KEMA/DEKRA, DNV/GL, UL). The SEC protective devices work discreetly in the background, providing consistent safeguarding for the entire system even in cases where high lightning surge currents are being discharged.
