Customising connectors simplified with online configurator
CombiTac connectors can house a very wide variety of contact types in a single casing. Choosing which contacts to use and where to place them has become easier with Stäubli's upgraded Configurator tool. This intuitive online service can be accessed from any web browser, and enables designers to quickly and easily build up a CombiTac connector to meet their precise requirements.
Connector system designed for powerful EV drivetrains
Developed to meet the demanding requirements of electric and hybrid vehicle drivetrains, the new PerforMore connector system from Stäubli Electrical Connectors can carry a continuous current of 400A or more with minimal power loss. The rugged devices are suitable for connecting the whole drivetrain, including batteries, inverters, motors and high voltage distribution units.
Connector system to feature at Solar & Storage Live
Highlighted by Stäubli Electrical Connectors at the Solar & Storage Live exhibition in Birmingham this September will be its MC4 solar power connector system. Enabling the bankability required for today's PV projects, these original, connectors have been installed in over 200GW of PV systems worldwide.
MPC rail industry connector system upgraded
Stäubli Electrical Connectors has upgraded its MPC range of rail industry modular power connectors as part of its process of continuous improvement. The enhancements include new generations of straight and right-angled connectors. The insulators in the new ranges are made of improved plastics that provide increased insulation resistance of up to 15kV and a lower degree of flammability.
MPC modular plug connectors at Railtex 2019
A variety of rugged connection products from Stäubli Electrical Connectors will be on show at the Railtex exhibition in Birmingham this May. They include versatile modular connectors that can be adapted to a range of different roles. One such product is the MPC modular plug connector which is suitable for power transmission applications in electric rail vehicles.
Rail industry certification for Stäubli Electrical Connectors
Stäubli Electrical Connectors has long been a supplier of advanced connection equipment to the rail industry, and its commitment to quality has been recognised with its certification to the new rail industry standard ISO/TS 22163. Based on ISO 9001, the standard replaces IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) and defines rules for project management, special process control, risk analysis and knowledge management within the rail...
Quick charging connector system for autonomous AGVs
Electrically driven Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) have become an integral part of advanced logistics facilities, navigating themselves through factories, warehouses and container terminals.
Industrial connectors enhance reliability and simplify assembly
Supplier of innovative mechatronic solutions, Stäubli will present its broad range of connection solutions for railway and transportation technology at InnoTrans 2018, being held in Berlin, Germany from the 18th-21st September.
Off-grid energy cubes exhibiting at DVD 2018
Power-Blox off-grid energy cubes will be a highlight on Stäubli's stand at the DVD 2018 defence equipment exhibition this September. The innovative energy storage system can deliver 230VAC at powers from 200W through to the kilowatt range.
Ensuring high performance power connections
A new two component spring contact for high power connections has been released by Stäubli Electrical Connectors, with the MULTILAM flexo ML-CUX, developed primarily for manufacturers of systems and equipment in the electricity supply and distribution sector.
High current connectors designed with optimised safety functions
Stäubli Electrical Connectors is launching the 16BL single pole, high current connector, which has been specially designed with optimised safety functions and increased flexibility for (emergency) power supplies and industrial applications. The 16BL allows safe, intuitive use and reliable power transmission under extreme environmental conditions, even in a temperature range from -40°C to +120°C.
Connector mounts for RobiFix-MINI high frequency welding lines
The lightweight RobiFix-MINI primary circuit connector system was developed for the latest 10kHz robotic welding lines. The manufacturer, Stäubli Electrical Connectors, has now introduced three locking accessories with releasable cable ties to ensure plugs and sockets remain connected. The RobiFix-MINI Lock is suitable for cable extensions as it keeps the connector locked in position even if not mounted on a wall or robot.
Dynamic cable clamp suitable for rail power connectors
Mechatronics company, Stäubli Electrical Connectors, has announced that its MPC Modular Power Connector range is used in rail power applications. Where the cables are regularly moved, such as when connecting and disconnecting rolling stock, the cables need to be clamped where they enter the MPC to prevent damage from repeated flexing.
Off-grid energy cubes provide 230VAC output power
A new energy storage system has been announced by Stäubli Electrical Connectors. It can deliver 230VAC at powers from 200W up to the kilowatt range. The modular system uses swarm technology, and can serve as a 'portable socket' to meet off-grid energy requirements.
Robust 10Gbit Ethernet modules suitable for industrial environments
The CombiTac connector system from Stäubli Electrical Connectors has been expanded to include a 10Gbit Ethernet module for high speed data communications in demanding environments. An existing 10Gbit CombiTac module has RJ45 termination suitable for static or minimal motion applications, whereas the new CAT6A carriers have a more robust M12 screw type interface.
Partnership offers intelligent energy storage
Stäubli Electrical Connectors (formerly Multi-Contact) and Power-Blox have signed a strategic partnership to jointly offer efficient solutions in the field of energy storage and off-the-grid systems. With over 20 years of experience in the photovoltaic industry and more than one billion installed PV connector components, Stäubli Electrical Connectors provides more than 150GW or 50% of the worldwide PV capacity.
Removable housing connector simplifies electrical testing
With its easily removable cover providing quick access to up to 320 contacts, the new CombiTac light housing connector allows simple electrical testing in applications where there is a high density of signal contacts. Introduced by Stäubli Electrical Connectors, formerly Multi-Contact, the ergonomically designed device has a centralised spring locking mechanism that draws the connector into its socket and locks them together. The plastic cov...
PV options added to standard connector range
The connector offering available from Stäubli Electrical Connectors now includes the MC4 solar power range. The high performance PV units were branded as Multi-Contact before the company's change of name earlier this year. More than one billion photovoltaic connectors in the MC4 family have been installed worldwide over the past 20 years, often operating in the harshest of environments.
Connector range expands with protective grounding module
A dedicated protective grounding module is now available for the versatile CombiTac connector system. The new module is suitable for the system's conductive DIN housings and protects users against electric shock in accordance with the IEC 61140 standard.
