Stäubli Connectors and Multi-Contact Plan Joint Exhibit at WINDPOWER 2013
Featuring Connectors for Thermal Management, Hydraulics and Electrical Supply
DUNCAN, SC – As the wind energy industry continues to gain momentum, WINDPOWER, the world's largest annual wind energy conference and expo, is set in take place in "windy city" Chicago, May 5 - 8 at McCormick Place Chicago. Stäubli's Connectors Division, joined by the Stäubli Group company Multi-Contact, will have a presence in Booth 1520.
The industry has long relied on Stäubli for quick, reliable connection solutions. Stäubli meets the demand with a versatile range of quick couplings and multi-couplings used to connect thermal management materials, hydraulics and electrical supply. At WINDPOWER 2013, attendees will have the opportunity to discover the latest advancements in high-performance connection technology from Stäubli, designed to address a variety of industry-specific concerns.
Stäubli's quick coupling systems for wind power stations, for example, are engineered to keep costly assembly and maintenance time to a minimum. In power converter cooling systems, Stäubli's secure non-spill and dry break couplings keep fluid in the lines and prevent leaks in the nacelle. And of course, given the remoteness of the equipment, the emphasis is on reliability.
Hydraulic couplings from Stäubli provide a high degree of resistance to all types of pressure. Whether used in hydraulic pitch systems or for the simple connection of hydraulic pipes, the couplings guarantee optimum flow of fluids and flawless environmental and circuit integrity. Stäubli’s multi-coupling systems for automation, used in applications such as cooling systems for rotor blades and docking driverless transport systems, reliably connect a number of different energy and fluid sources simultaneously, without risk of error or impact on flow rate and tightness.
Multi-Contact, exhibiting jointly with Stäubli Connectors at WINDPOWER 2013, is highly regarded for its electrical connectors and connector systems for wind power stations. These solutions meet the need for easy contact between wired wind engine segments on-site and simplified maintenance processes in the switch gear, for example, while Multi-Contact's CombiTac modular connector system can be used in various parts of the windmill, from the switch case to the nacelle.
Stäubli is a mechatronics solutions provider with three dedicated divisions: Textile Machinery, Connectors and Robotics. With a workforce of 4000, Stäubli has a presence in 25 countries and agents in 50 countries around the world. For more information, visit www.staubli.com.
