Are there any receptacles that can be welded in the HHS-series?
Yes, we have 2 types of recepacles that can be welded.
Either with weld nibs, where it is needed to spot weld the receptacle to your panel,
This is the type with welding nibs:
This process is used in mass production with which you need a special machine to do it.
With this machine you combine pressure while also pushing a current through the weld nibs.
The receptacle that needs to be welded on by traditional manner looks like the following receptacle:
As mentioned, this receptacle needs to be welded on by the traditional manner such as TIG or MIG welding.
This process takes much longer than the spot welding.
There is also a difference in the plating. When needed to weld a receptacle to a panel,
The choice is between either a zinc plated or an oil coated steel receptacle.
The part number with weld nibs is HHSRFWZ (zinc plated) or HHSRFWB (blank/oil coated)
Without weld nibs, the part number is HHSRFWSZ (zinc plated) or HHSRFWSB (blank/oil coated)
