Rugged connectors for harsh environments with vibration and caustic fluids offered by Amphenol
SIDNEY, N.Y., 8 May 2014. Amphenol Industrial Products Group in Sidney, N.Y., is introducing the Tru-Loc rugged connector family for applications in harsh environments where high vibration and caustic fluids are present.
Tru-Loc connectors have 1.5-millimeter socket contacts with Amphenol RADSOK technology and rugged, compact, thermoplastic construction. Offered in a 2-way, 4-way, or 6-way plug and receptacle in-line system, Tru-Loc is rated to 13 Amps continuous (with 16 gauge cable).
It is designed to perform in demanding environments such as under valve covers on diesel engines to mate to fuel injectors. It can withstand vibrations to 32 Grms, and the interfacial seal is molded out of a fluroelastomer material to withstand exposure to many chemicals.
This Tru-Loc series has an operating temperature range of -40 to 125 degrees Celsius, with higher temperatures rated to 150 C available. Tru-Loc has an IP67 rating when mated. The connector’s stamped and formed terminals are RoHS complaint and can crimp to a variety of wire gauges.
Tru-Loc can be designed by Amphenol’s engineering team to mate to a device, splitter, sensor, as well as become a pass through connector, or be tailored to customer specifications upon request.
