The modern mining industry has enormous electrical challenges. Electronics used in today’s mines and mining equipment must be able to manage more power, handle higher voltages, move data and communication transmissions faster, and operate without interruption in some of the world’s harshest environments. With over eighty years of experience in the interconnect industry, Amphenol brings its design, manufacturing, and innovation to the mining market. As an undisputed global leader of interconnect solutions for harsh environments, Amphenol has solutions to solve any technical challenge. Whether it’s our Medium Voltage Coupler (MVC) Series, one of our existing products like Starline EX and Amphe-EX, complex harnesses, or complete electrical packaging solutions, Amphenol has the expertise to satisfy all of the mining industry’s needs.
Medium Voltage Solutions
Mining equipment often times requires interconnects that can carry, not only, large amounts of current but also thousands of volts in one package. With the use of our patented RADSOK® contact technology, our medium voltage couplers can off the most amperage and lowest insertion force in the industry.
The power needs of a mine site are vast and Amphenol Industrial Products Group has interconnect solutions to cover any conceivable application. By incorporating our patented RADSOK® technology up to 50% more current can flow through the same size terminal allowing for lower mating forces and smaller footprints.
Signal transmissions are now commonplace in the mining world and the requirement for interconnect systems that can handle high vibration, high temperature and overall harsh environment demands is critical. Amphenol Industrial Products Group has numerous connectors that can meet the needs of any mining data connection. We even have interconnect systems than can incorporate both power and signal.
