Sequential mating system ensures security of supplyITT's VEAM NRG Sequential mating system is presented in a 19in rack format and guarantees the correct mating and unmating sequence for a set of the company's Powerlock power distribution connectors. The 'foolproof' nature of the NRG system makes it especially suitable for applications such as special events – concerts, broadcasts, exhibitions – as well as energy generation.

Patented cam covers on each of the panel connector ensure that the proper sequence of Ground, Neutral, Phase 1, Phase 2, Phase 3 is adhered to. Once connected, the system can be secured by a keylock, ensuring that the system cannot be accessed by unauthorised persons. As an additional security measure, the keylock can be connected via a microswitch to a circuit breaker. If the keylock is disabled, the circuit breaker trips, thereby isolating the NRG unit from the mains and preventing disconnection while under load. A primary keylock can also be employed to prevent unauthorised connection to the power cables.

Rated at either 400 or 600A, the NRG unit is available either as a Panel Source or Panel Drain unit. Both configurations meet IP65 when mated. The system is compatible with all VEAM Powerlock connectors, and colour-coded versions for Europe, the USA and Australia are available.
