Stäubli Electrical Connectors Showcases Innovation, Safety at PowerTest 2018
The company’s innovative MULTILAM technology allows for connector solutions designed to perform in the most severe conditions for up to 1 million mating cycles
WINDSOR, Calif. (February 26, 2018) – Stäubli Electrical Connectors, Inc. (formerly Multi-Contact USA) will showcase its safe and highly reliable solutions for power transmission, test and measurement, transportation and a variety of other industries at the PowerTest 2018 trade show(Booth #215) in Washington, D.C., February 26 – March 2.
Over the past 50 years, Stäubli Electrical Connectors has established itself as an industry leader in high-quality connectors and test accessories, providing innovative solutions for customers across the globe. All Stäubli Electrical Connectors products benefit from the company’s innovative MULTILAM technology, which features specially formed and resilient contact elements. Constant spring pressure from MULTILAM louvers ensures continuous contact with the contact surface, resulting in a constantly low contact resistance. This technology allows Stäubli to create solutions for connectors within the most severe constraints for up to 1 million mating cycles.
“As our power grid continues to expand, there is an ever-increasing need for dependable connections that also provide the capability for safe, quick disconnection when faults occur,” said Christian España, sales and marketing manager, Stäubli Electrical Connectors. “Our company has always been focused on performance, dependability and repeatability, which uniquely positions us to service this rapidly growing industry with customizable solutions designed to improve safety and maximize efficiency.” Stäubli Electrical Connectors’ accurately fitting test accessories support extra-low to medium-high voltages, and direct-current to high-frequency measurement. The Test & Measurement product family includes a complete line of insulated test accessories for high-frequency engineering, as well as a wide range of highly flexible wire that meets and exceeds the most stringent safety requirements in the industry. The company’s products can be found in electronics laboratories and training establishments, in service technologies and also in mains analysis/mains monitoring devices.
At PowerTest Stäubli will display its new 16BL single-pole high current connector system designed for severe requirements in utilities and industrial environments. These plug connectors are used as equipment connectors and couplers in industrial installations, energy storage, test stands and standby power units and are equipped with bayonet or push-pull lock to prevent inadvertent disconnection. Panel receptacles and couplers are single-pole plug connectors equipped with the company’s proven MULTILAM technology, and contact inserts are made of silver-plated brass.
Also on display will be the single pole, insulated 21mm round connector, which complements 10BV and 16BV systems and adds a powerful solution with current carrying capacity up to 1000A for mobile power supply.
