The Transco Neptune is the only flush mounted, hingeless, self enclosed, weatherproof (IP65), double pole. neon indicator, power point, ever made. We have used our patented poly chloroprene gasket technology to achieve ingress protection only seen in expensive bulky top end industrial outlets. The Neptune power point offers safety, space saving, and aesthetic improvement to a huge range of commercial and domestic design applications, from restaurants and cafes through to veterinary clinics, from domestic balconies to alfresco entertaining areas, from caravans to mobile classrooms the Neptune gives you a power solution like none before.

  • The Neptune can replace industrial switched socket outlets in commercial and domestic wet area applications. Ingress protection of 65 when operational means the power points can be used safely while hosing using low to medium pressure. The Neptune's really stands alone when you close the lid, allowing you to use a high pressure cleaning system and all common food industry approved cleaning chemicals will not penetrate or damage the Neptune. UV stabilised means indoor or outdoor the Neptune does not care, -20 degrees to plus 50 degrees means use anywhere.

  • Industrial socket outlets are bulky using 80% more space than the Neptune, and costly, more the four times the cost of Neptune. Important in a cafe or commercial kitchen, where space is often at a premium. The aesthetics of the space need to considered, with customers often able to view the food prep areas, large grey boxes on the wall, nice to have a low profile product that blends in with a light or dark back ground, that is what Neptune can do.

  • The Neptune has a quarter of the depth profile of a "garden" power point. The Neptune has a much higher level of ingress protection than all domestic weather proof power points. A contoured front edge, a safer product and a like for like price point.

  • All mobile and dynamic power points need to be double pole, this applies to caravans, camper vans, mobile food trucks, site sheds, mobile classrooms etc. The Neptune can be used externally and internally on these structures. Neon power indicators help with fault finding, no neon light in on mode supply side fault, neon on appliance fault.
