350 AU EVO
WattGate 350 EVO AU Gold
Introducing the WattGate 350 EVO AU (Gold) plated IEC plug. WattGate have spent the last few years improving their legendary IEC connectors. The new WattGate plugs are called WattGate EVO and our listening tests have confirmed that they are a real evolution over the original WattGate ‘Classic’ plugs.
Featuring a number of new, innovative features the WattGate evolution range are a real step forward in plug performance. New WattLock terminals incorporating WattLock ‘teeth’ improve contact pressure on the cable conductors for a lower resistance connection. The new terminals accept conductors of up to 8 AWG (3.26mm diameter).
The high spring-rate contacts mean that the plugs grip securely onto your equipment socket. The new plugs will accept a cable with a total diameter of up to 19mm. The complete plug shell is of non-magnetic construction with a durable polycarbonate plug shell.
Evolution Audio Grade IEC Power Connectors
From their inception, Wattgate products were conceived to be different and offer unparalleled performance and durability. We combined those ideals with the finest materials, designs and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. The result is a system of AC power connectors in a class by themselves. There is no secret behind Wattgate. Through the use of superior engineering and highly conductive elements (copper and gold) and coupled with high-pressure large surface area contacts, overall DC resistance is minimized.
It's very simple, yet incredibly effective. The Wattgate 350i has been years in development and represents a step forward in cord-end IEC manufacture. The 350i is unlike any IEC, featuring the Perma-Lock™ system, simple termination and unique, extremely heavy-duty contacts. With its ease of installation and superior design, the 350i is the most advanced IEC ever. When you see Blue Star Audio Grade®, you see the best!
WATTGATE Three Layer Plating Process
- Oxygen free copper plating; improves conductivity
- Electroless nickel plating; necessary to prevent the leeching of the copper through the pure gold layer
