A hazardous industry by its very nature, mine sites must rely heavily on electrical equipment. The safe and reliable transfer of electricity throughout a site is a significant concern.

Amphenol Industrial Global Operations (AIGO) offers many products and solutions for the mining market. The MVC 8KV incorporates patented RADSOK® contact technology for higher amperage (25% greater than a standard contact), lower T-rise, less resistance and reduced mating forces. When looking for the best interconnect for the job, AIGO’s MVC 8KV cable coupler with “Rapid-Couple®” technology will not leave you guessing.

The MVC 8KV coupler has been remarkably designed with a wide range of features and benefits that makes this the coupler of choice for the mining industry and other markets. Our Rapid- Couple® interlock method makes for quick and easy mating and unmating. This provides for positive mating and secure fitting covers that repel water and soil while keeping the contacts uncontaminated. Engineered to Amphenol’s high standards for ruggedness and reliability there is no field condition in the world that can impede the MVC.
