The main benefit of the isolating plugs and sockets is that it eliminates the need for a switch, and ensures that power is available where and when it is required. The socket outlet and appliance inlet are interlocked and then switched when engaged, making the connection and disconnection under load safe and reliable. Connectors in the 3PS series discriminate so only connection between the same voltage, amperage and number of poles is possible.

The 3PS isolating plugs from Proconect are available in five sizes: 16 A, 32 A, 63 A, 125 A and 160 A.
