Electrical Connectors and Interconnection Systems
EEC, a worldwide manufacturer, provides electrical connectors and interconnection systems to the offshore oil and gas industry. EEC’s vast range of products includes power, control and instrumentation connectors for hazardous and non-hazardous locations and intrinsically safe systems, as well as for measurement, control and regulation, power distribution, circuit protection and illumination.
Electrical connector systems
EEC has been manufacturing electrical connector systems for over 25 years. The use of innovative designs, and the latest in material and manufacturing processes, has enabled EEC to achieve a leading position in the international market place.
The most recent developments in electrical connector development equipment include the HDS-enhanced insert system, which gives improved reliability and increased voltage ratings of up to 1,000VAC. The new EFP (enhanced) series of electrical connectors utilizes these enhancements to allow the connectors to operate safely and with increased voltages.
Compression and barrier-type cable glands
EEC’s complete line of cable glands for both industrial and hazardous locations includes compression-type glands to IP 68 and barrier-type glands for the termination of armored cables. All armouring systems are covered with certifications, including both European (ATEX) and North American (NEC) standards.
Cable grips, pulling grips and swivels
EEC offers a full line of wire management systems, including cable grips, pulling grips and swivels. Typical applications for these include cable strain relief, fibre optic applications, oil-industry cable supports, conduit risers and overhead service cables. Cable grips are manufactured from a variety of materials, including galvanized steel, stainless steel and arimid.
Power connectors and interconnection systems
EEC offers a range of power connectors for both multi-pin power and single conductor application with ampacities up to 1,500A at 2kV AC or DC. Interconnection systems are available for both hazardous and non-hazardous locations, and meet ATEX (Cenelec) and North American (NEC) standards.
Enclosures for increased safety
EEC provides a complete line of enclosures, which are both suited to compliment connector lines and as standalone terminal enclosure systems. The enclosures are manufactured from a variety of stainless steels and are available populated with terminals or as empty enclosures.
Explosion-protected electrical connectors
EEC’s products fulfill the highest safety requirements in Europe and worldwide. Explosion-protected equipment, developed and manufactured by EEC, complies with European standard EN 60079 and international standard IEC 60079 for hazardous areas of all explosion groups and temperature classes. The quality and reliability of EEC products has been endorsed by certifications from international testing agencies, including IEC.
ISO-certified quality management
The EEC quality management system is certified to ISO 9001:2008 by DNV. The quality of its products and services is assured by the use of state-of-the-art processes from development through to dispatch.
