Abtech Medium Voltage Terminal (ATEX) Simplifies Hazardous Area Zone 1 Electrical Connections

Abtech have developed an Ex-rated medium voltage terminal designed to simplify the connection of 4.4kV to 6.6kV electrical supplies within hazardous area zones in the oil, gas and petrochem industry. 

This component certified terminal allows standard Ex-rated hazardous area junction boxes to be transformed in to a cost effective medium voltage connection enclosure.

Abtech's medium voltage terminal is available in three, four and six way configurations and can accept up to 240sqmm conductors and is rated for a maximum current of 250A.

Medium voltage terminals can be specified to be linked in pairs or multiples and are suitable for high ambient temperature applications.

The MV terminal is both ATEX and IECEx approved for Zone 1 hazardous areas and compatible with the Abtech SX stainless steel enclosure range.
