contact parts that connect!


  • Contact technology by Bals

Innovations that serve in practical applications: the best example of our claim to systematically address the requirements of specialists and users and then develop products suitable for practical use is the KONTEX-PLUS contact – a technology that offers you numerous advantages.

The result of intensive development work is the KONTEX-PLUS contact, which, due to the type of manufacturing, stands apart from standard CEE contacts in speed of installation and reliability in daily use under harsh conditions.


  • With the new manufacturing process, a uniform quality of the socket contacts is achieved.
  • During the nickel plating process, the contact surface is coated with a uniform layer of nickel thanks to the special sleeve design.
  • The innovative terminal technology ensures fast, problem-free and simple conductor connection.
  • High self-cleaning effect, uniform insertion and withdrawal forces as well as minimised contact resistances are achieved through precisely defined contact pressure on the contact surfaces.
  • The special manufacturing process allows raw material with an increased copper content to be used, thereby increasing the electrical conductivity and reducing heat development.
  • The KONTEX-PLUS is, of course, switching-capacity tested. Test documents for 63A with a rated voltage of even 690V are on file.
  • The screwless QUICK-CONNECT terminal has proven itself for years in 16A and 32A plugs and sockets; it is resistant to shock and vibration and insensitive to temperature fluctuations, making it maintenance-free.
