Technical superiority and extreme robustness of equipment are vital for successful military operations.
Stäubli provides fluid and electrical connectors, as well as robotics for the naval industry.
Stäubli’s electrical connector portfolio ranges from miniature to high-power connectors for power transmission, test and measurement applications. The core of all Stäubli electrical connectors is its unique MULTILAM contact technology.
Electronic connectors and contact systems for naval technology
Stäubli’s standard portfolio of electrical connectors and contact systems includes customised solutions for signal, power and data transfer, as well as hydraulic and pneumatic connections can be used with defence technology.
Stäubli Electronic Connectors
Stäubli solutions meet the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) standard DO-160 for airborne equipment, as well as other international requirements of the aerospace and defence industry. They are lightweight, compact and vibration resistant.
The connector systems are suitable for air, sea and land-based applications.
High-performance modular connector systems
Stäubli’s CombiTacline features versatile connection options that can be tailored to meet customer specification.
Due to its modularity, CombiTac can provide a combination of power, signal, thermocouple, coaxial, fiber-optic, pneumatic, hydraulic and bus connections in a compact frame or housing.
Busbar connections by cliplam and fork connectors
The company’s slide-inline offerings are designed to create pull-out electrical connections between two sets of double-pole insulated busbars.
The cliplam system, a rackable connector for laminated busbars, can be easily attached to silver-plated busbars of varying thicknesses between 2mm and 5mm by means of two clips.
The electrical contact is established by the Stäubli Electrical Connectors, MULTILAM contact elements, which form independent lines of current.
Stäubli also offers American standard fork connectors for 1in busbars. Different lengths are available allowing for a variety of power handling capabilities.
These connectors can be used for machine manufacturers that require power connections to be made with modules that slide into a cabinet or busbar.
High-performance power connectors for interconnection solutions
Stäubli power connectors can be used in a broad selection of applications, such as power generation and distribution, or rack and panel applications.
It also offers special electrical contacts from AWG26 to AWG0000 that are very lightweight and can be customised.
The company also offers a multi-pole connector TBC, which is designed to be compact and have a high-tolerance to hydrocarbon compounds such as fossil fuels, ensuring an efficient and dependable connection even in the presence of severe vibrations and shocks.
Copper alloy MULTILAM technology
All Stäubli product ranges use Stäubli Electrical Connectors Advanced Multilam contact technology.
Multilams are strips of copper alloy that are float-mounted in a groove, they are specially formed and resilient. These strips can be gold or silver-plated depending on their intended application, they also have a self-cleaning effect on the contact surfaces, and maintain constant contact pressure.
MULTILAM technology allows the company to meet a very broad range of requirements and to find solutions for difficult constraints, including electrical from watts to mega watts, thermal up to 400°C, and mechanical, with contact durability of up to one million mating cycles.
Stäubli also specialises in the design and manufacture of dynamic rotary and linear sliding contacts with high-resistance to shock and vibration.
Stäubli will be visiting the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida, US, to exhibit its textile machinery solutions at the Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) 2017.
In May, Stäubli is to present its extensive range of connection solutions for alternative fuels at ACT EXPO in Long Beach, California, US.
