Industrial's New Medium Voltage Coupler (MVC) Series
August 26, 2013
Amphenol Industrial Global Operations introduces a new line of heavy duty medium voltage couplers (MVC) for use in harsh 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.
The MVC series features Amphenol's patented RADSOK technology that offers higher 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.
This new series features Amphenol's Rapid-Couple technology, an interlock method that makes for quick and easy mating and unmating in the field -- no tools or closing mechanisms are needed.
