Amphenol Connectors: RADSOK PCB Connectors

16 02 2011

Amphenol Industrial, one of the global leaders in interconnect systems, now offers three compact, high-amperage, ROHS-compliant RADSOK PCB connectors for a variety of power bus applications. Find Amphenol connectors now.

These applications include, but are not limited to, high-power bus assembly utilities, power-to-board servers, power-to-box servers and battery power/chargers for electric vehicles.

Amphenol’s proprietary RADSOK technology uses a hyperbolic, stamped grid configuration that ensures a large, coaxial, face-to-face surface area engagement to maximize heat dissipation and reduce failures.

The RADSERT, PowerBlok and PGY connectors not only feature dependable operation, but also offer more surface space within a circuit board design while eliminating threaded connection failures. They are ideal for use in high-current, single-point connections.

The RADSERT connector offers the smallest footprint of Amphenol’s new PCB line, opening up the most surface space for design flexibility.

This new connector gives designers the option of bringing power to the board from busbars suspended above or below the board and its components. RADSERT is offered in both press-fit and APL-A-4973 solder versions, and is available in either a 2.4 mm (0.094”) size and rated for up to 35 Amps or a 3.6 mm (0.141”) size and rated for up to 70 Amps. It is designed for a board thickness of 6.35 mm +/-0.0635 mm (0.250” +/-0.025”) with custom sizes available for specific applications.

One of the leading suppliers of military and industrial connectors in the world is Amphenol. Amphenol connectors are all built to military specified standards. Amphenol are at the forefront of circular connection development.

The RADSOK technology, according to Amphenol, also provides ‘increased reliability, ampacity and cycle durability as well as lower insertion force, T-rise and voltage drop.’

If you are looking to buy circular connectors, either for industrial or military use, Challenger Components can supply all of your requirements.

Information on military connectors, what they do and where they are used. Plus, information on Amphenol military connectors.

What are Military Connectors?

Military Connectors are typically used for power in engines which have high vibrations when they are running.

These particular connectors are used and built for military parts so are designed to withstand harsh weather and other drastic environmental factors making them tougher and more durable than other types of connectors.

When Should Military Connectors be Used?

They are used in military and aerospace applications. Military connectors are used on a range of military equipment, but they are also used for aircraft engines as they are designed to withstand high vibrations that are common in aeroplanes.

These electrical connectors are able to protect electrical circuits from electro-magnetic interference and electromagnet pulses such as lightening which can be problematic and even dangerous in extreme situations, such as during military manoeuvres, making them indispensible for military use.
