Enhanced Connector Series from Amphenol Distributes High Current DC Power in Compact Design

Amphe-PD series transmits more power with less heat for high performance industrial and datacom equipment

Technical Specifications

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

Sidney, N.Y. July 2017 – Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, now offers a versatile 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 Amphe-PD series distributes higher currents with less heat than similar-sized connectors on the market.

Ideal 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 offering wire terminations ranging from 12AWG to 4AWG.  

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.

Delivery is 8 weeks ARO.
