New range of contact elements for smaller high power connectors

10 June 2013

Multi-Contact has extended its range of Multilam contact elements with introduction of its LA-CUDD contacts. These have a double louvre construction which makes it possible to produce connectors that are more compact while continuing to meet the requirements for low contact resistance and very high current carrying capacity.

The outstanding electrical and mechanical properties of the LA-CUDD contacts set new standards for high current contact elements. Their very low contact resistance and very high conductance ensure nearly loss-free power transmission and thus low heat generation at the point of contact.

In the area of power technology, where very high currents have to be mastered safely, this can avoid critical temperature increases and excessive load on the system. The LA-CUDD also meets requirements such as the high contact frequency or high number of sliding cycles typical of switchgear and/or industrial contact applications.

High current in a small area and compact Multilam contacts offer additional decisive advantages. The complete contact solution can be made smaller, shorter and with a slimmer diameter. With the LA-CUDD, two or more contact rows can be replaced by a single contact - with the same or even better electrical values. This saves effort and costs, permitting significantly smaller and more economical system components.

The new torsion spring contact is suited for plug or sliding contacts, in vacuum, insulating oils or insulating gases, in the medium- to high-voltage range as well as for special high current contacts in machines and installations.

For 50 years, Multi-Contact has been offering high quality engineering and service. A particular strength lies in developing customised contact solutions based on Multilam technology.
