Heavy Duty Connector Has Explosionproof Design

Aug. 25, 2014
Amphenol Industrial Products Group offers a heavy duty connector series that is explosion proof and certified for use in IECEx Group 1 mining hazardous locations.

Amphenol Industrial Products Group offers a heavy duty connector series that is explosion proof and certified for use in IECEx Group 1 mining hazardous locations.  Based on Amphenol's Star-Line series, the Amphe-Mine EX product line is made up of environmentally sealed plugs and receptacles and provides outstanding performance in harsh environments.

Ideal for use in underground mining explosive environments and applications, petrochemical refineries, land and offshore drilling systems, this rugged connector series is certified to the latest IECEx standards including Group 1 mining applications in Australia and ATEX certificate Zone 1 standards.

These compact environmental connectors offer exceptional mating properties and come in high grade 316 stainless steel. Their design provides outstanding performance in explosive-proof automatic and process control systems as well as in instrumentation systems.

Used in power distribution for underground mining machinery, data transmission and acquisition for underground communication systems and in motors, Amphenol's Amphe-Mine EX is threaded, flameproof and fabricated to prevent the mixture of explosive gases and the electrical circuits by means of tighter tolerances in mated junctions. The Amphe-Mine EX series offers the industry's broadest range of backshell arrangements and contact inserts for power (up to 1,135 amps at 1,000 V/AC or DC), signal (up to 143 contacts) and mixed power control applications.  All contact inserts are interchangeable and reversible to suit specific needs. Solder, crimp and pressure terminals are available.

These rugged connectors offer a full range of hardware styles including the use of flameproof rated cable glands.  They feature high quality copper contacts with silver plating (gold plating available as an option) as well as a hard anodic coating. Composite inserts for power, control and instrumentation services available.

Amphenol's Amphe-Mine EX series features RADSOK technology that offers higher current ratings (up to 25% higher than standard contacts) with lower mating forces as well as high reliability, low contact resistance, high mating cycles and a self-cleaning design.

Pricing for the Amphe-Mine EX starts at $250 per unit.  Delivery is 8 weeks ARO.
