The new, high-performance MPC (Modular Power Connector) by Multi-Contact has been developed for the transmission of power in the electric propulsion system of rolling stock. It is used for example to make electrical contact with the transformer, the traction motor or inverters and batteries, and to provide a power connection between the cars. With rated values of 3600 V and up to 700 A it is also suited for many other industrial high-current and high-voltage applications. The robust connector with protection class IP66/IP67 in the mated state is designed for demanding applications with more than 500 mating cycles. Developed for the harsh environment of railway applications the MPC is, among other things, vibration- and shock-tested in accordance with EN 61373, and corrosion-resistant (240 h salt spray test) in accordance with EN 60068-2-11.
At the Innotrans Berlin from 18 - 21 September 2012 you will have the chance to get the latest information about the MPC and its many possibilities. Multi-Contact welcomes you in hall 10.2, stand 117.
