Further options added to CombiTac

Dec 11, 2011 | Cables and Accessories

Multi-Contact has added high current options to its CombiTac connector system. The standard module size contact carriers can be fitted with one or more poles with current ratings as high as 292A.

The plastic single-pole contact carriers accept 12mm diameter contacts, with different versions for male and female contacts. The contacts are designed for cable cross-sections of 50-95mm2 and termination is by crimping or an M10 internal thread for cable.

Earth contacts are also available, with 8mm diameter pins and sockets. The pins for these are longer than the current carrying contacts, to provide early-make-late-break connection.

All the contacts are silver plated and the sockets are fitted with Multi-Contact’s Multilam torsion spring technology to enhance reliability. Typical fields of application are devices carrying high currents such as welding systems and battery charging stations.

In addition to high current contacts, the CombiTac system can be fitted with high voltage, databus, power, thermocouple, coaxial, fibre optic, pneumatic and fluid connectors in any combination. The contact carriers are housed in a compact frame for panel mounting or built into DIN coupler hoods.
