Multi-Contact New High Current Module for MC CombiTac
Stäubli Electrical Connectors, Inc. Posted 01/15/2013Multi-Contact has developed a new Ø 12mm connector for high current applications for the modular connector system CombiTac. The new connector was first presented to the public at the Hannover Messe 2010.
The new Ø 12mm connector with silver plated contact has been particularly designed for high current applications up to 292A. For either crimp termination or metric thread termination using a cable lug on to flexible copper cable. The program is supplemented by a Ø 8mm contact (available from mid May). The second is longer than the current-carrying Ø 12mm contact and thus serves as first-to-make last-to-break contact.
The design of the contact guarantees protection against incorrect mating and prevents accidental contact on the female side. Typical fields of application are devices which carry high currents such as welding systems and battery charging stations.
Technical specifications are listed in the new flyer E CombiTac.
