The range includes both standard split V connectors and those used for connections to Holec switchgear. The TE range of mechanical connectors is ever growing and the latest addition is the split V range which includes switchgear connectors. Mechanical connectors have many benefits for both the user and the inventory manager. These connectors are range taking, reducing inventory requirements.
Magnefix connectors have a shim used with the smaller conductors in the connector range. The shim centralises the conductor in the connector body, reducing the offset when the connection is made.
The V shape of the connector faces increases the contact area of the connector.
The two interlocking V faces pull the two connector halves into alignment as they are tightened ensuring a straight connection.
The manufacturing tolerances used ensure that the upper and lower V faces are always in complete contact when the centre joining bolt is tightened and sheared off.
The centre bolt can be removed with an Allen Key and replaced with an approved connector replacement bolt. This feature provides the option to disconnect the cable from the switchgear for cable testing.
Compatible with Raychem heatshrink terminations and will come standard in these kits.
TE Connectivity Mechanical Magnefix Connectors are made to comply with requirements of IEC61238
