SIDNEY, N.Y., 4 Nov. 2015. Amphenol Industrial Products Group in Sidney, N.Y., is introducing the compact universal plastic power connectors for power converters, hybrid electric vehicles, battery management systems, heavy equipment electrification, starter generators, and 2- and 3-phase motors.

The connectors are available in two sizes and offer continuous power with 200 amps. These 2- and 3-pole connectors feature a plastic shell structure and small footprint. They are field installable and repairable.

The connectors include Amphenol’s RADSOK technology for high amperage, low voltage drop, less resistance and lower T-rise. RADSOK’s twisted grid configuration allows for 50 percent more current to pass through the same size pin to achieve the smaller package size, while providing increased reliability, cycle durability and lower mating forces, company officials say.

These connectors are touch proof with high voltage interlock loop and include EMI shielding. Amphenol’s connectors meet an IP67 rating when in a mated condition and can withstand a minimum of 500 mating cycles.
