VG96918 (848/847) is an energy supply connector in full accordance with the military standard VG96918. The robust reverse bayonet locking system, derived from VG95234, in combination with the IP 68 sealing and a conus design backshell for shielded cable and heat shrink boot make this connector the perfect match for all harsh environments, whether in Heavy Industries, Geophysics or Defence Applications. It offers 3 shell sizes with layouts for single phase 250V/16A or 3 phase 500V/25A up to 500V/63A and covers all standardized energy supply classes of VDE0620-1.
The first mate-last break ground contact is safely connected to the shell. The additional pilot contact allows the use in hot mate/unmate conditions (breaking capacity). The solid aluminium alloy shell is plated with our proven Zink Nickel process und withstands 500 hrs salt spray and 500 mating cycles and complies with RoHS requirements.
The solid steel shell is cadmium plated and withstands 48 hrs salt spray and 500 mating cycles while the Marine Bronze shells are withstanding min. 500 hrs salt spray. The machined and silver plated contacts are designed for crimping.
