Enhanced connector series
05 October 2017
Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, now offers a versatile connection system that distributes high current DC power in a compact form. Designed to connect wire to wire, wire to board as well as busbar terminations, the Amphe-PD series is said to distribute higher currents with less heat than similar-sized connectors on the market.
Suitable for use in datacenter equipment, robotics and industrial automation, the new connector series is available in busbar mount, right angle and vertical SMT compatible PCB mount offering wire terminations ranging from 12 to 4AWG.
The Amphe-PD features RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower t-rise, less resistance and lower mating forces. The RADSOK terminal features a stamped hyperbolic contact with multiple beams for optimal current carrying performance. This technology allows for more power in a smaller footprint with the connectors offering a dual position RADSOK in a TUV ‘touch-proof’ safe housing.
The 3.6 mm connectors are UL listed at 69A and CSA listed at 55A. They are user-friendly and support a 50A to 70A continuous duty rating. They meet RoHS and UL-94V-0 guidelines and have crimp contacts in the plug and receptacle with a crimp barrel for up to 4AWG wire. They also have an integrated latching mechanism for secure mating and features easy, tool-less assembly.
