Multi-X

Multi-X is a range of innovative, easy to handle, multi-plates designed to meet and exceed the demands of even the most challenging mobile hydraulic applications. Its innovative design rivals and surpasses other existing multi-plates on the market. The unique design made with the user in mind offers you a plate system that provides great flexibility, high performance, easy installation and trouble-free operation.

Flexibility

The range consists of six standard configurations,matching the most frequent application needs. The sizes range for DN 10 to DN 19 combined with two or four ports in each plate. Each plate can also be equipped with an optional electric connector (available as accessory). The innovative design allows you to use either part of the plate system mounted as the fixed part without compromising the performance. The mounting bracket is enclosed with the female plate but you can just as easily use it to install the male plate in the application instead. As an extra advantage when you use the male plate as the fixed part you can connect standard ISO 16028 flatface couplings to the Multi-X plate, giving you maximum flexibility to use tools and attachments both with and without a Multi-X plate.

Performance

The Multi-X design allows you to use a working pressure up to 35 MPa on half the ports simultaneously and the rest of the ports as return lines with a maximum of 5 MPa, regardless if you use two or four ports. The design also offers the possibility to connect the units with residual pressure.

Residual pressure 1. Up to 35 MPa residual pressure on the male side when free to drain on the female side. 2. Up to 25 MPa residual pressure on the female side when free to drain on the male side. 3. Up to 25 MPa residual pressure on the male side and 1 MPa return resistance on the female side.

Connections

The Multi-X range is outfitted with NXC Plug-In hose connections, making them both easy to assemble and to connect. Using Plug-In connections provides the Multi-X range with the same outstanding features as the NXC Range products – self-aligning hose connections that prolongs hose life, minimizes downtimes when the need to replace or remove the hose occurs and its minimal space requirements that allows for more compact designs. Each Multi-X plate comes with integrated NXC cartridges for easy installation. Use the NXC Hose connection nipples and ferrules to crimp the nipples directly onto the hose or convert your existing hose to NXC Plug-In with the threaded NXC Nipples.

Operation

The Multi-X is easily operated with one hand on the lever and one hand guiding the moving plate during both connection and disconnection. The ergonomical lever placed perpendicular to the hydraulic lines keeps the operators hands safe. The locking button secures the lever when connected and prevents unintentional disconnection. All Multi-X male plates are equipped with pressure eliminator nipples that make it possible to connect the plates also with residual pressure in the system. By puncturing the pressure, without spillage, it allows for a smooth connection even at a high residual pressure (up to 35 MPa).

The self-aligning NXC connection removes the torsion in the hose, a common issue when using ordinary fittings, making it easy to align and connect the plates.
