How are the connectors for the connection between wagons of Alfa´R?
The B-C series of multi-contact connectors type CARTER are not only used for making connections between wagons possible. In any sector where a robust connection is required can be an excellent option to consider. And although the main one is the railway industry, are also used as a first choice in many works of mining, naval industry, chemical and heavy among others.
Plus, have the possibility of making combinations between contacts electric and coaxial, fluids, air and fiber optics, so that they are can integrate signals of a different nature into the same connector, multiplying the possibilities of use.
In terms of safety, they are granted IP-68 protection and, of course, all aspects of the UL and IEC electrical safety standards are complied with.
Physical characteristics of the B-C series of CARTER type multi-contact connectors
The manufacture has always been very robust, thinking of the difficulties given by the external agents that must support. And we’re not just talking about a strong mechanical level of traction. obviously makes the resistance at this level maximum. Many of these connectors (which not all) are also exposed to factors as well as weather difficulties.
Thus, we have to connectors for the connection between wagons, both those of type 1 as well as type 3, are the largest in our repertoire of solutions.
We offer 9 different sizes that can be customized with different configurations. These range from 5 to 30 cm for the diameter of your insulator. In we can incorporate types and distribution of contacts according to need.
On the other hand, your body can be designed to be attached to a lever or screw, made on base or in the air.
The crimp contacts, made of copper alloy, are gold-plated on nickel/silver. In the case of strapping, we also have the combination of gold nickel/silver and precipitated CuBe. The retainers are Manufactured in stainless steel. Welding or crimp are made of alloy. copper, but coated in silver and also including the retainer in the stainless steel.
All of them have a cover, which is yet another mode of protection for the interconnection zone.
Its positioner allows a perfect alignment between the pairs.
The insulating materials, on the other hand, have different possibilities of rotation, of so that there are no connection errors, the circumstance is that it is even if there are multiple connectors.
We give standard coating, in nickel or painted/anodized in black.
