GEWISS has independently decided to introduce on its products IP68 protection degree, (permanent immersion up to 20 meters) and IP69 protection degree (against water jets with high temperature and pressure), to offer the maximum achievable and testable performances, even fulfilling more strict standards than that of the product.

3)     What new applications do the new plugs and socket-outlets offer? The new applications offered thanks to the extension of the reference hours of the earth contacts are: use with high frequencies, use with particular voltage, use with high frequencies, marine, port and naval installations, refrigerated containers, isolation transformers and use in direct current.

4)     Which range of clamping do the new plugs and socket-outlets offer? The range of clamping, recorded in the tables below, are in line or superior than the range required by the standard.

5)     Is there interchangeability with the old range? The new range is totally interchangeable with the old one.

6)     Is it possible to have fast wiring on all versions not in the catalogue? Yes, all versions can be designed on request with fast wiring as special articles.
