Amphenol Industrial's Amphe-PD
July 26, 2017
Amphenol Industrial now offers a versatile connection system that distributes high current DC power in a compact design. Designed to connect wire to wire, wire to board, and busbar terminations, the Amphe-PD series distributes higher currents with less heat than similar-sized connectors on the market.
Ideal for use in datacenter equipment, robotics and industrial automation, the Amphe-PD series connectors are available in busbar mount, right angle and vertical SMT compatible PCB mount offering wire terminations ranging from 12AWG 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. The connector series offers a dual position RADSOK in a TUV ‘touch-proof' safe housing.
The 3.6mm connectors are UL listed at 69A and CSA listed at 55A. These robust connectors are user friendly and support a 50A to 70A continuous duty rating. They meet RoHS and UL-94V-0 guidelines.
The Amphe-PD has crimp contacts in the plug and receptacle with a crimp barrel for up to 4AWG wire. Amphe-PD has an integrated latching mechanism for secure mating and features easy, tool-less assembly.
