MULTILAM Technology

MULTILAM torsio for a broad range of contact requirements

Applications

  • High-current connectors e.g. in Power Transmission and Distribution (PTD)
  • Static and dynamic contacts
  • Mating, sliding and rotary contacts
  • Fork and flat contacts
  • Pressed-in contacts
  • High frequency connections in GHz range

The MULTILAM torsio family comprises several types of MULTILAM, similar to the “lineo” family. These types are one-component MULTILAM having a different spring principle. Their spring properties result from torsion zones in the louvered strip creating a resilient connection between the strip and single louver. They provide a permanent and adequate contact force and result together with the short current path of each louver in higher current-carrying capacities. Thanks to the wide selection of MULTILAM torsio types, a broad range of requirements can be addressed easily.

Benefits
