“In the pursuit of innovation, the design of the Universal Piercing Connector – KPB connector has as a differential, besides its ‘spring effect’ in the connection, a significant reduction in the probability of selection errors and, consequently, also the failure rate in the ”explains Roberto Karam Júnior, Commercial Director of KRJ, when he launched the product at FIEE Smart Future, a fair that took place in July 2019 and concluded a new technological phase for the company.
According to KRJ Commercial Director, the project stands out with the innovation of busbar balance, which realizes the spring effect on the connection and the broader application range of its models that reduces the amount of items to be selected by the operational team. . With these technological improvements, Karam estimates the turnover of this line to be over one million pieces in the first year of release, and informs that at FIEE, among the line of connectors, the KPB had 50% demand in relation to the others.
During the fair, the KARP piercing connector also had a special highlight, this line integrates the family of compact network piercing connectors. Its development has the function of attending shunt connections in 15, 25 and 35kV protected medium voltage networks, without the need for stripping or recomposition of the conductor cover, with the stirrup as an option for safety grounding or for connection to the transformer.
According to Roberto Karam Júnior, participating in the 30th edition of FIEE Smart Future was very fruitful, as they were able to present their innovations in electrical connection, obtain information and share at the same time, and strengthen relationships with those more distant customers.
