Raptor E-Flight high-power connectors from Amphenol now available from Powell Electronics

Aug 2022: Amphenol’s latest range of high-power, high-voltage connectors designed for high-voltage and high-current systems in E-Flight, E-VTOL and hybrid applications can now be sourced through Powell Electronics, the supplier of connectors and more for high-rel applications including defence, aerospace and industrial. The devices benefit from partial discharge free performance at an operating voltage of 2.0KV AC(rms) at 35.000 ft, making them ideal for applications such as batteries, generators, motors and power distribution units. Raptor connectors are also ideal for termination of screened HV power cables in aerospace applications.

Based on the successful and proven Amphenol Ltd Rhino series for ground power applications, but now re-engineered for aerospace applications and using the new TALON contacts from Ampheno, Raptor connectors are available in shell sizes 15 to 25 and benefit from many new features such as a very high temperature capability of up to +200°C, IP68 sealing, increased creepage and clearance distances as well as an anti-decoupling ratchet mechanism on both coupling ring and backshell, ensuring a reliable connection even under high vibrations. With superior EMC performance, Electroless Nickel plating and a high voltage insulation system the Raptor connector series ensures a reliable connection for high power e-flight systems.
