Nelson AXPC Kits contain everything needed to create the safest, most reliable and fully protected heat trace wiring connections in hazardous locations.

Emerson is bringing added reliability to heavy-duty industrial heat trace deployments with its Nelson AXPC Connection Kits engineered to fulfill the increased safety requirements of NEC/CEC hazardous location codes.

Compatible with 3/4″ NPT conduit entries, Nelson AXPC Kits contain everything needed to create the safest, most reliable and fully protected heat trace wiring connections in multiple configurations, as well as to verify the heating cable circuit’s operation. The kits protect petrochemical plants, food and beverage manufacturers, and power generation facilities from fluids freezing in their pipes, valves and tanks in cold weather.

Nelson AXPC Connector Kits are constructed to withstand extreme conditions that would compromise a standard heat trace connector. Their nonmetallic, impact-resistant polyester enclosures are rated IP66 and NEMA 4X, making them suitable for use in highly corrosive environments. The enclosures also feature reinforced standoffs to prevent cracking, along with being carbon-impregnated so static charge can not buildup.

The enclosures offer the additional advantage of being both larger and modular in design for assure easier, faster installation and service. DIN-rail mounted terminal blocks help when maintaining the connection, while spring-clamp terminals simplify wiring with no need to tighten screws. The kits fit all wattages of Nelson LT-J, LT-JT, HLT-J, XLT-J and CLT-JT Series self-regulating heater cables.

In addition to the AX Series for NEC and CEC installations, Nelson offers its EX Series version for IEC global hazardous requirements.
