Thermgard Connectors

J&B's Thermgard® Connectors feature a thermal sensor strategically placed in the connector face, which constantly monitors the temperature of the ground power connection at the aircraft. This thermal sensor causes the 400 Hz power to disconnect from the aircraft the ground power unit is knocked offline and the aircraft goes dark if/when the temperature at the connection reaches the predetermined setting of 130 degrees C. The rejection of the 400 Hz power in turn alerts ramp personnel to possible danger, the need to investigate the cause of the problem and frequently, the need to replace the cable or its nose.
