Single-Pin Connector Ups The Amps, Drops The T-Rise

Single-Pin Connector Ups The Amps, Drops The T-Rise

Amphenol says its new Rig-Lok single-pin connector series has a higher amperage rating and lower T-rise and insertion/removal forces versus other available rugged connectors. The connector’s 1/4-turn reverse bayonet locking coupling allows for audible, tactile, and visual confirmation of secure mating. Double-dead front, finger-proof inserts help protect the pin and socket, and enable users to offer standard and reverse service within the same connector package. Rig-Lok, which comes with various alternate keyway options, prevents inter-mating of different circuits with the panels on which they’re used. Two shell sizes allows for termination of wires ranging from 4/0 AWG to 777 MCM cable. Amperage rating maxes out at 1135 A at 2500 V dc. The device’s corrosion resistant plating with a hard-coat anodized finish can withstand 300 days of continuous salt spray. Moreover, a ruggedized, overmolded coupling nut creates a better grip for users when in harsh environments, such as oilfields.
