The increasing demand for energy and the associated expansion of existing power grids call for powerful and highly dependable equipment. The miniaturization of installations and systems requires a reduction in size of all machineries and components without compromise in performance. At the same time, energy suppliers and power stations pay very close attention to their operating and maintenance costs.
The latest innovation in Stäubli’s MULTILAM contact technology portfolio scores with excellent and constant current-carrying capacity as well as minimal transition resistance due to its sophisticated construction technique. The design of the MULTILAM flexo ML-CUX allows for installations with very little space. Based on its features and functionality, fewer contact elements are required for the same or higher power, enabling a more compact system design with less heating.
For its latest series of innovative high voltage GIS products, Xi’an XD High Voltage Apparatus has successfully implemented the new ML-CUX contact elements in various highly demanding busbars. Thus, their customers benefit from compact, reliable and powerful GIS switchgear equipment on top of a positive impact on their total cost of ownership.
