SIDNEY, N.Y., 22 April 2016. Amphenol Industrial Products Group in Sidney, N.Y., is introducing the UPT power and signal quick-disconnect circular connector for heavy equipment, transportation, diesel engine, and electric vehicle applications.

Based on Amphenol's 26482 series I, the UPT features a plastic shell with a metal coupling system and crimp termination. This lightweight connector has a small footprint and is easy to install in the field once it has been crimped in the facility.

The UPT contact features three retention tines that can be inserted and ensure retention force. Used in buses, diesel engines, Class 8 trucks, trailers, garbage trucks, tractors as well as in construction equipment, industrial pumping and power generation, the UPT offers bayonet coupling for quick mating and reliability.

These RoHS compliant connectors are environmentally sealed and have an operating temperature range of -40 to 125 degrees Celsius. They offer jam nut and square flange mounts for 32-way and 48-way contacts.
