Phillips Industries has released its March 2019 issue of Qwik Tech Tips. This issue addresses pin degradation, or the wearing down of the brass pin receptacles in a plug and/or the pins inside a socket.
Pin degradation is the result of constant coupling and uncoupling of the connection as well as corrosion build-up.
Sockets with split pins and routine preventative maintenance can help reduce weak connections caused by pin degradation. Replacing plugs and sockets with those that have anti-corrosive properties, among other features, will reduce downtime and possible violations for lighting issues, Phillips writes.
