Connector’s New Design Reduces Mating Mistakes

To ensure safety during operation, Amphenol Industrial Global Operations developed a connector designed with 90- and 120-color and keyway positions of different polarity that helps reduce mating mistakes. The Amphe-SP3 features the company’s RADOSK technology that uses a hyperbolic, stamped grid configuration to create a large, coaxial, face-to-face surface area engagement, which maximizes heat dissipation and reduces failures. In turn, there’s low voltage drop and low temperature rise, as well as lower insertion forces. Thus, the single-pole plastic connector suits environmental high-power applications for smart grid power, industrial UPS, hybrid/electric vehicles, control systems, factory automation, etc. Maximum operating voltage is 600 V ac with a contact resistance of 5 MΩ.
