Additionally, the 5K has a rugged “straight-line” interface/cord configuration that is versatile for various applications including installation in many limited-space situations.

The 5K, along with Canfield Connector’s Series 5F and Series 5J, are the only molded valve connectors in the industry that feature a hard usage cord option in any length required, bi-directional indicator lights and load suppression (not intended for UL 1449).
