Power connector cuts assembly time

ittpowervipSanta Ana, Calif. — ITT Interconnect Solutions has claimed the only 90-degree interconnect on the market designed to replace fixed insulator power systems and enable current converters on trains to be quickly connected and disconnected.

Designated the VEAM Power VIP, the connector’s straight receptacle and right-angle plug are lightweight and offer considerable space savings over conventional interconnects for train current converters, power transmission applications, mobile generators and distribution panels, said ITT.

The VEAM Power VIP connector meets the latest safety regulations and incorporates finger protection to guard against the risk of injury or electric shock, while allowing an operative to mate and un-mate the connector quickly. The connectors also feature a threaded coupling with keyway orientation and are rated up to 700A.

The interconnect solution is RoHS compliant, IP67 water protected, as well as meets standards for low smoke emission as well as I2F2 and UL-94-V0 standards.
