ITT Interconnect Solutions claims that its new VEAM Power VIP connector is the only 90-degree interconnect on the market that is designed to replace fixed insulator power systems and enable current converters on trains to be speedily and easily connected and disconnected.
The VEAM Power VIP has a straight receptacle and right-angle plug that is lightweight and offers considerable scope for saving space compared with conventional interconnects for train current converters, power transmission applications, mobile generators and distribution panels. This new connector meets the latest relevant safety regulations and incorporates finger protection.
VEAM Power VIP connectors feature a threaded coupling with keyway orientation and are rated up to 700A. RoHS-compliant and sealed to IP67, these new interconnects meet standards for low smoke emission as well as I2F2 and UL-94-V0 standards.
