Better connected

28 February 2008

A new medium range voltage connector has been tested on the market. Nine sets of Cavotec's PC6 12 kV connectors have been installed at the Port of Salalah in Oman for its dockside cranes.

They provide better IP protection compared to a regular junction box, allowing cranes to be disconnected and towed to a service area without calling an electrician to the site, explained the company.

A single person can connect or disconnect the converter, which is designed for harsh environments. The body is made of marine grade aluminium, cams from marine grade bronze and insulators from Teflon.
