Compact Connectors Parcel Out The Power

Amphenol Industrial Products Group offers the versatile Amphe-PD series connection system that distributes high current dc power in a compact design. Designed to connect wire to wire, wire to board, and busbar terminations, the series distributes higher currents with less heat than similar-sized connectors on the market. Features include:

  • RADSOK technology
  • UL listed at 69A
  • CSA listed at 55A
  • Power contacts available up to 120A

 

Viable for use in datacenter equipment, robotics and industrial automation, the Amphe-PD series connectors are available in busbar mount, right angle, and vertical SMT compatible PCB mount, with wire terminations ranging from 12 AWG to 4 AWG.

The Amphe-PD features RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower t-rise, less resistance and lower mating forces.  The RADSOK terminal features a stamped hyperbolic contact with multiple beams for optimal current carrying performance.  This technology allows for more power in a smaller footprint. The connector series offers a dual position RADSOK in a TUV 'touch-proof' safe housing.  The 3.6mm connectors are UL listed at 69A and CSA listed at 55A.  These robust connectors are user friendly and support a 50A to 70A continuous duty rating. They meet RoHS and UL-94V-0 guidelines.

 

The Amphe-PD has crimp contacts in the plug and receptacle with a crimp barrel for up to 4AWG wire. Amphe-PD has an integrated latching mechanism for secure mating and features easy, tool-less assembly. For more details and specs, visit the Amphe-PD product page.
