SIDNEY, N.Y., 30 Aug. 2016. Amphenol Industrial Products Group in Sidney, N.Y., is introducing the ePower-Lite line of medium-amperage power connectors for hybrid and electric vehicle applications, as well as other medium-power applications.

The connectors are rated to 70 amps of continuous current and have operating voltages of 800 volts DC. These connectors feature a lightweight plastic shell and compact design.

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 features 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way systems with optional HVIL and EMI shielding for safety and performance. The connectors are built to meet the demanding needs of medium-voltage and medium-amperage applications.

The connectors have 3.6-millimeter terminals with the Amphenol RADSOK technology for high current ratings, low insertion forces, and low temperature rise and contact resistance. Due to the low insertion force, no mechanical assist is required. The ePower-Lite can be mated at least 100 times.

This connector series has a UL 94V-0 flammability rating, an IP67 rating, and an operating temperature range from -40 to 125 degrees Celsius.
