Seven-Pole Plug

Cole Hersee Company’s seven-pole plug for heavy-duty trucking applications connects to any standard J560b socket and locks in place with any spring-loaded door. The seven standard contacts use Cole Hersee’s spring-grip design with self-adjusting spring band, which enables uniform contact with the socket pins. The seven-pole plug is constructed from glass-filled plastic that cannot rust or corrode. An O-ring at the end of the plug prevents moisture from reaching the contacts.
