Available with stainless steel ball bearing (Model 1500-1-SS)
Mercotac model 1500 series are ideal connectors for high-power applications such as on plating electrodes and welding cable reels that require more power than the smaller Mercotac model 1250 series connectors. They come standard with a stainless steel housing. Available with stainless steel ball bearing (1500-SS or 1500-1-SS) (recommended for wet or corrosive environments).

 Model 1500 Suggested Mounting Methods
Model 1500 is typically mounted by the threaded stud on either end or by the steel body using a set screw.  When mounting horizontally, mount the Mercotac so the body of the connector rotates.

Installation Notes:

  • the up arrow should not point below horizontal
  • do not solder to or bend connector tabs
  • avoid lateral forces and mechanical loads (overly stiff or tight wires)
  • do not rigid mount both ends of connector
  • limit mounting eccentricity (runout / wobble) to .005″ (.13mm)
  • provide overload protection within the circuit
  • avoid vibration and bumping motions
