IP67 power connectorsAmphenol Industrial Global Operations expanded its ePower connector series to include the IP67-rated ePower 200 for use in smaller scale electromechanical systems with a 200-A current limit as well as in power converters, motors for hybrid electric vehicles and high current electrical systems in utility trucks and other heavy equipment vehicles. The connectors feature integrated EMI shielding and the company’s RADSOK technology that attains higher current ratings and lower contact resistance in comparison to other contact methods on the market. This new connector operates at 600 V DC with a 200 A rating. In the growing energy storage market, where space is at a premium and budgets are often limited, these ePower connectors can replace up to three conventional connectors, according to the company. The ePower 200 is available in two- and three-pin power configurations with a current rating of 200 A per contact and features IP2X style sockets available in crimp, lug or bus bar termination, while cable plugs feature IP2X style crimp pin and can accommodate shielded wires. This new connector also includes an all aluminum shell, strain relief for jacketed cable incorporated into the shell and outstanding vibration resistance as well as two signal terminals for last mate-first break HVIL purposes.
