SIMABUS connectors

Substation Innovation

TE Connectivity's (TE) modular SIMABUS and SIMAFLEX connector systems are revolutionizing substations by replacing multiple connector types with a single busbar connector that reduces lead time, eliminates waste and improves performance. Designed as a universal product to meet the needs of utilities customers worldwide, our connector systems use a modular approach to replace three other types of connectors – Classic, Sinemex and Anti-Corona – with a single product. These connectors can match any busbar height and interconnect specification. As part of our SIMEL product line, these connector systems are the result of more than 60 years of experience in high-voltage applications.

Product Benefits

SIMABUS and SIMAFLEX connectors
  • Modular approach:  match any busbar height and interconnect specification.
