Stäubli upgrades MPC rail industry connector
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 1 kV and a lower degree of flammability. They meet European rail applications standard EN 45545-2, including the most stringent HL3 R23 hazard level class for underground and high speed trains.
The insulation, combined with a new zinc die-cast alloy used for the side elements, has allowed the units to be more compact, with weight reductions of up to 30% over previous models while remaining 100% compatible.
