Plug into the latest technology
A The South African electrical industry now has access to some of the latest international technology, thanks to leading distributor ElectroMechanica of Johannesburg. This includes the Xenia series of industrial plugs and sockets and the Optima-Top series of industrial surface-mounting socket outlets from SCAME Electrical Solutions.
Not only does ElectroMechanica offer world-class products, it guarantees these remain cost-competitive for customers, Sales and Marketing Director Richard Nobbs comments. The South African distributor specialises in bringing the latest brands and trends to the local market, which not only benchmarks it internationally, but allows local players to remain up to date with global developments.
An example ofthis are some of the products from SCAME Electrical Solutions of Italy, distributed exclusively by ElectroMechanica. The Optima-Top and Xenia series, in particular, comply with the latest European Union (EU) directives with regard to electrical components. This ensures that local companies have peace-of-mind in terms of international compliance when deploying these products.
For example, the Optima-Top and Xenia series comply with the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU, which requires the addition of the manufacturer’s address, with a new label to replace the old ones used for plugs, connectors and inlets, in addition to laser etching used for flush mounting sockets.

The Xenia series has an insulation voltage of 500 VAC, and is offered with an IP44 protection rating for enhanced safety. The operating temperature is -25°C to +40°C, and the glow wire test is 650/850°C. Material of construction is halogen-free engineering plastic, with an IK08 impact resistance (1.7 kg with a striking energy of 2 J). The cable inlet is in the form of a cable sleeve.
The Optima-Top series has an insulation voltage of 500/690 V, and is offered with an IP44 to IP66/67/69 protection rating for enhanced safety. The operating temperature is -25°C to +40°C, and the glow wire test is 650/850°C. Material of construction is halogen-free engineering plastic, with an IK08 impact resistance (1.7 kg with a striking energy of 2 J).
“These world-class plugs and sockets not only offer the latest in technology and regulatory compliance but, more importantly, are very price-competitive. In addition, the main focus is to ensure safe and reliable operation in all circumstances, which enhances the overall efficiency. Another feature is that these products have been designed with ease-of-use in mind, which makes them highly suited to African operating conditions,” Nobbs concludes.
