Pin and sleeve receptacles refer to the female end cord connectors that feature a socket into which compatible pin and sleeve plugs are fit. Usually, pin and sleeve receptacles are attached permanently to the connector and the plugs attached to a cable. The joints between the two connectors can be accessorized with a locking mechanism and a waterproof seal to ensure stable power supply and component durability. Sometimes pin and sleeve connectors ensure more reliable power connections by using hyperbolic contacts. Receptacles with multiple nodes for fitting multiple pins can have attached diagrams to specify what nodes fit which pins. The standard designs for pin and sleeve receptacles have ratings of 60A, 100A 125A, and 200A that can be featured in both older and newer variations of pin and sleeve connectors, including splash-proof receptacles and watertight receptacles. Pin and sleeve receptacles and plugs are used in a wide range of applications such as in XLR connectors, breadboards, phone connectors, banana connectors, and car power connectors.MRO Supply is your best bet at getting bins, carts, pallet jacks
