XP Millennium Series
Stainless Steel Control Connectors

In 2000, at the start of the third millennium, Vantage introduced the first stainless steel connectors designed for use in Class I and Class II hazardous areas. Incorporating all of the proven technology from the Victory Series, this landmark achievement includes CSA and ATEX product listings and is backed by our ISO 9001:2000 quality system.

Circuit Breaking
SF StarLine CSA listed connectors are circuit breaking, designed and tested to make/break at full rated load – an added safety feature. View a Flash Animation demo.

Corrosion Resistance
Designed for corrosive environments, junction boxes are sand cast, copper-free aluminum, protected by our VanGuard baked polymer finish system. Plug and receptacle shells are machined from type 316 stainless steel.

Reverse Service
Available with all Victory and Millennium series connectors, reverse service provides electrical safety where lineside power is carried from the plug to a receptacle.

Electrical Interlock Switch
Receptacles with junction boxes are available with this variation. The normally open switch is operated automatically by insertion / withdrawal of the mating plug.

Submersible
SF connectors are explosion proof and submersible! Fully mated, they will withstand 200 PSI external and 100 PSI internal pressure.

Voltage
SF Explosion proof StarLine has been tested for service through 250 VAC.

Color Coding
Plugs and receptacles are available with color coding variations for specific application identification. This coding could include the plug coupling nut and cover with matching colors on various receptacle components.

Purged Systems
Victory and Millennium series NPT / panel mount receptacles, with factory sealing and flat gaskets are ideal for this technology.

Factory Sealing
Factory Sealing
Junction box, NPT and panel-mount receptacles are pre-wired and factory sealed. No external seals are required.

Alternate Keying
For added safety, inserts can be keyed in alternate positions to prevent mating of different voltages, frequencies or services.
