Amphenol launch new connectors for hybrid vehicles and drive systems

27 09 2011

Amphenol Industrial, an established market leader in industrial connectors and interconnect systems, have unveiled a new ePower Energy Storage Connector.

The connectors feature Amphenol’s patented RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower contact resistance and easier mating.

They are designed specifically for use within electrification programs in hybrid vehicles and drive systems that require compact connectors operating at high amperage and high voltage levels.

They can be used in a huge variety of applications such as hybrid electric vehicles, power converters, heavy equipment electrification and starter generators. They also operate at 800 VDC to 1,000 VDC.

The new connectors can accommodate two small gauge signal contacts for HVIL (High Voltage Interlock Loop).

This is mainly due to the fact that they are available in two – and three – pin power configurations ranging from 100A through 500A per contact, and the fact that they have a 40% smaller footprint than three EMI shielding cable glands.

The release follows hot on the heels of two other new products which Amphenol have recently produced.

The new Amphenol Max-M12 connection system is perfect for construction machinery and equipment, agricultural machinery and equipment and harsh environment sensors, controllers, actuators and switches.

In contrast, the Amphe-BTS is a compact, energy-efficient connector which is specifically constructed to adhere to the requirements which have been established by the next generation of base stations.

The Amphe-BTS also provides 360 degree EMI shielding with grounding fingers.

It incorporates a specially designed locking system that guarantees strong vibration and shock resistance.

The release of such products reaffirms Amphenol’s position as one of the most important names in the world of connectors.

They continue to search for new ways to use connectors within practical and efficient applications, producing innovative ideas in the process.
