ETP Liquidtight Connectors Ideal for Demanding, Space-Sensitive Industrial & OEM Applications

ROSEMONT, IL, February 9, 2005 The ETP 4QS is an easy-to-install, long-lasting connector for use with liquidtight flexible metallic electrical conduit. The 4QS offers electrical contractors and OEMs a compact form factor for a tighter turning radius, along with a rugged design that withstands the most abusive environments.

The ETP 4QS is UL Listed for use in Class I, Div. 2 hazardous location electrical systems, such as petrochemical plants and other heavy industrial applications. It is also ideal for use in machine tool building, motor and transformer terminations, robotics assembly, air conditioning installation or other jobs that require the protection of electrical wiring from liquids, vapors or solids.

Performance-enhancing features include a zinc-plated steel body and nut for the straight connectors, and a malleable iron/zinc plated design for the 45 degree and 90 degree bodies. Both ensure a long service life, minimizing costly service calls.

The 4QS has a captive gland that stays in the connector, making installation quick and easy, along with a hex-shaped gland nut, and an extra long hub that enables the use of bushings to protect conductors from abrasion. The reusable ferrule can be disassembled to save time and money in retrofit jobs.

ETP 4QS Connectors are available in trade sizes 3/8-inch to 2-inches, with body designs of straight, 45° and 90°, insulated or non-insulated. The sealing gasket and locknut are included with the connector, eliminating the need for separate purchases.
