ITT 90 Degree Interconnect Solution Suits Train Current Converters and Power Transmissions

August 30, 2010 by Jeff Shepard

ITT Interconnect Solutions has developed what it says is the only 90 degree interconnect on the market designed to replace fixed insulator power systems and enable current converters on trains to be speedily and easily connected and disconnected.

Designated the VEAM Power VIP, the connector’s straight receptacle and right angle plug are lightweight and are said to offer considerable space savings over conventional interconnects for train current converters, power transmission applications, mobile generators and distribution panels. The new VEAM Power VIP connector meets the latest safety regulations and incorporates finger protection to guard against the risk of injury or electric shock, while allowing an operative to mate and un-mate the connector quickly.

The VEAM Power VIP connector features a threaded coupling with keyway orientation and is rated up to 700A. The interconnect solution is not only RoHS compliant and IP67 water protected, but the new connector also meets standards for low smoke emission as well as I2F2 and UL-94-V0 standards.
