High Voltage - introduction
High voltage Power Connectors 25000V
The Cavotec Group has been serving the mining and tunnelling industries with solutions for their power connector requirements. Our electrical connectors provide a flexible, convenient and reliable means of extending cables from fixed or mobile powers sources to mining, tunnelling and earthmoving equipment. They are also often used for portable junction boxes either in above- or underground applications.

The concept of replaceable cables and cable connectors on high voltage equipment has been recognised as practical for many years. Now, with increased emphasis being placed on limiting the number and frequency of temporary splices made in trailing cables, the use of permissible connectors and replaceable medium- voltage cables is gaining increasing acceptance. To meet this growing demand the Cavotec Group offers a range of specially designed “trailing cable connectors” to expedite cable changes and minimize downtime. Heavy-duty aluminium housings enclose impact resistant insulators which support pin-and-socket type contacts. The contacts are attached to conductors by set screws or by soldering. These connectors are X7P-1944 MSHA certified.
