SIDNEY, N.Y., 2 July 2008.Amphenol Industrial in Sidney, N.Y., is introducing a 5015-style, reverse-bayonet coupling connector series called the Amphe-Power GT with audible, tactile, and visual indication of attachment.
The GT connectors offer a coupling cover for damage protection and gripping for harsh-environment connector applications like military functions, wind power generation, and agricultural appliances.
The GT series features more than 12 different shell styles; high shock and vibration resistance; and a rugged, waterproof construction to IP67. The reverse-bayonet coupling allows for at least 2,000 matings in the field without extra tools via a quarter-turn mechanism.
Options include solder or crimp termination, gold- or silver-plated contacts, military or commercial finishes, Neoprene or Viton inserts in addition to low smoke/flame retardant inserts, a set of back-end fittings, aluminum or stainless steel components, and more than 250 layouts.
Amphe-Power GT connectors are interchangeable with Veam-style connectors. Neoprene and low smoke/flame retardant inserts have an operating range of -55 to more than 125 degrees Celsius, while the Viton inserts exceed that range by operating from -50 to more than 200 C.
