Monolithic construction ensures long-term performance and durability. Internally sealed with ceramic materials, the enclosure protects circuitry and wiring from oxidation and humidity and eliminates vibrations. ArNi® conductors made of OFE C10100 copper enhance performance. VTX™ virtually hollow tubes reduce skin effects & eddy currents. A hydraulic electromagnetic breaker provides over-current protection w/o heating up or current limiting. Costlier than fuses/breakers, but delivers higher quality.
