The strength of the currents used in snow guns makes the force required to plug and unplug connectors very high; occasionally it may be necessary for two people to carry out disconnection.
However, the application of X-Contact technology in the industrial plugs and sockets used by TechnoAlpin makes it safer and easier to work with TechnoAlpin products by halving the amount of force required for plugging and unplugging. Consequently, it is much easier for snowmaking staff to handle the snow guns, even with the high current levels.
