Amphenol Industrial Products Group 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 12 AWG to 4 AWG.
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 3.6 mm connectors are UL listed at 69 A and CSA listed at 55 A. These robust connectors are user friendly and support a 50 to 70 A 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 4 AWG wire. Amphe-PD has an integrated latching mechanism for secure mating and features easy, tool-less assembly.
