MVC Medium Voltage Couplers
Cylindrical, Metal, Medium Voltage, RADSOK® Power Coupler
Amphenol Industrial Global Operations (AIGO) offers many products and solutions for the mining market. A hazardous industry by its very nature, mine sites must rely heavily on electrical equipment. The safe and reliable transfer of electricity throughout a site is a significant concern. When looking for the best interconnect for the job, AIGO’s MVC 600V, 8KV, or 15KV cable couplers with “Rapid-Couple” technology will not leave you guessing. The MVC incorporates patented RADSOK® contact technology for higher amperages (20% to 25% greater than a standard contact), lower T-rises, less resistance and reduced mating forces.
Engineered to Amphenol's high standards for ruggedness and reliability there is no field condition in the world that can impede the MVC. Our Rapid-Couple interlock method makes for a coupler with a quick and easy mating/unmating system. This provides for positive mating and secure fitting covers that repel water and soil while keeping the contacts uncontaminated. The MVC coupler has been remarkably designed with a wide range of features and benefits that makes this the coupler of choice for the mining industry.
