Connector series

  • 21-Oct-2010 03:07 EDT


Amphenol Industrial offers a compact, lightweight connector series designed to eliminate bulky and space-consuming cable glands on motors, ac/dc inverters and converters, and other high-amperage equipment. The ePower 400A connectors are rated to 1000 V dc and feature integrated EMI shielding. The IP67-rated ePower family of connectors is specifically designed to meet the demanding needs of modern electrification programs in high-voltage and high-amperage applications such as power converters, hybrid-electric vehicles, heavy equipment electrification, two- and three-phase motors, and starter generators in the military and aerospace markets. Incorporating Amphenol’s RADSOK contact system to achieve higher current ratings, the connector series also lowers temperature rise and contact resistance, as compared to other contact methods, according to the company. RADSOK technology, an electrical terminal based on a hyperbolic grid configuration, enables lower insertion forces than standard contacts for easier mating.
