An electromechanical unit for Kamaz trucks
7 December 2019
MTA a multinational company, headquartered in Italy, known for the development and production of a wide range of electromechanical and electronic products for major OEMs, is announcing during the North American Commercial Vehicle Show (Hall B1, Stand 4045) the beginning of the collaboration with Kamaz, thanks to the supply of an electromechanical power distribution unit developed together with the Russian manufacturer for its new range of K5 trucks.
The unit for Kamaz ensures the power distribution to the primary electrical services of the vehicles through a bus bar in copper alloy and it can be set up with different types of fuses, always produced by MTA, to satisfy the different uses of the trucks it is installed in. The unit can house up to five MidiVal fuses (from 30 A to 120 A) and two 125 A MegaVal fuses.
The unit stands out for its IP67 degree of protection thanks to a pre-assembled silicone gasket placed between the body and the unit's cover, as well as gaskets and relative retainers with different sections. The lid is secured by a co-molded closure and five latches with acoustic verification, which preload the lid against the gasket. Steel compression limiters are located in the three installation holes to reduce loss of tightening torque due to vibrations and heat.
The unit for Kamaz is also equipped with a jump-start plug to allow direct access to the current supplied by the battery.
