Amphenol Industrial Products Group now offers a medium amperage connection system that is rated to up to 70 A of continuous current. The ePower-Lite has an operating voltage of 800 VDC.
Designed for the hybrid and electric vehicle markets, these connectors feature a lightweight plastic shell and compact design to provide both weight and space savings in vehicle architecture.
The ePower-Lite features 2-way, 3-way and 4-way systems with optional HVIL and EMI shielding for safety and performance.
Amphenol's ePower-Lite connector series is built to meet the demanding needs of medium voltage and medium amperage applications. It incorporates 3.6mm terminals with Amphenol's patented RADSOK technology to achieve higher current ratings, lower insertion forces and lower temperature rise and contact resistance. Due to the low insertion force, no mechanical assist is required.
These touch-proof connectors are RoHS compliant and can be used for charging, for accessory power or anywhere a sealed medium power connector is required. The ePower-Lite can be mated a minimum of 100 times.
This connector series has a UL 94V-0 flammability rating, an IP67 rating and an operating temperature range from -40°C to 125°C.
