Amphenol Industrial Global Operations (Sidney, NY) has introduced a new line of heavy-duty medium voltage couplers (MVC) for use in hazardous environments. Amphenol’s MVC series is ideal for applications in the mining, utility, tunneling, and shore power industries for safe and reliable transfer of electricity throughout a job site. These new couplers vary in voltage from 600 V to 15 kV with amperages up to 600 A. Features include:
- RADSOK technology offers high current ratings (up to 25% higher than standard contacts) with lower mating forces as well as high reliability, low contact resistance, high mating cycles, and a self-cleaning design.
- Rapid-Couple technology: Interlock method makes for quick and easy mating and unmating in the field -- no tools or closing mechanisms are needed.
- Secure fitting covers that repel water and soil while keeping the contacts uncontaminated when used in hazardous conditions.
