An example of this is the 35BU, exclusive to KonNx Africa and our sister companies, which is the only coupler available on the market with an operational voltage of 35,000V. Our 12kV flameproof coupler system, designed by our sister company’s founding director Philip Marks, was awarded the South African Flameproof Association’s Product Innovation Award in 2018. Additionally, all of our high voltage products have a genderless design.
Placing a high priority on the operational health and safety of our clients, KonNx Africa products include various features such as:
- phases segregated by earth;
