February 12, 2014. Now available in the UK from the Peak Group are a range of high-power contacts for the Mass InterConnect systems produced by Virginia Panel Corp. (VPC).
Designed for use in high-power testing, the new contacts offer current ratings up to 150 A. Rapid connection is ensured when the contacts are installed in VPC’s iCon and i1 high-power InterConnect solutions, with six contacts possible in the iCon and four in the i1.
Both the iCon and i1 systems have an innovative engagement mechanism with spring-loaded locking tabs and built-in lubrication that secures the connection with a quick half-turn of the handle. The engagement mechanism ensures a quick and easy connect and disconnect.
VPC's high-power contacts are gold-plated for signal integrity and reliability, and they use highly flexible Cooner 2 AWG wire for maximum reliability.
Applications include testing high-power battery systems for hybrid and electric cars.
