Features & Benefits:

Features and benefits common to all our couplers include:

  • Removable face which is replaceable without having to re-terminate the coupler reducing maintenance costs
  • Phase pins up to 300mm (Ex) and 500mm (stainless steel) catering for all common cable sizes
  • 800A capacity for run cool operation
  • Gender neutral so no cable orientation required
  • Fitted silicon phase shrouds that expel air, dust and moisture from contact area
  • Silver plated fitted pins and connectors for maximum conductivity
  • Corrosion resistant stainless steel fasteners
  • Modular design allowing for reduced inventory
  • Metal phase separation to eliminate phase to phase faults
  • For the Ex option, certified thus no local retesting required
