Amphenol Industrial's IP67-rated ePower 400A connectors are suitable for mechanical, electrical, chemical, and thermal energy storage systems and can operate from 800 to 1000 V dc with integrated electromagnetic interface shielding. The lightweight, compact connectors meet high voltage and amperage electrification needs and replace up to three conventional connectors to conserve space. The series features Amphenol's Radsok technology to improve current ratings and reduce contact resistance. Other benefits include a 40% smaller footprint, lower insertion forces, and easier mating. Connectors are available in two- and three-pin power configurations from 100 to 500 A per contact, can accommodate two small gauge signals, and can be used in power converters, hybrid electric vehicles, heavy-equipment electrification, two- and three-phase motors, and starter generators.
