The Neptune connectors are suitable for use in oil exploration, convention centres, factories, production platforms, communication shelters, portable power equipment and geophysical trucks and skids.

They are rugged, high-performance connectors that pair an aluminium housing with Amphenol’s Radsok contact technology to provide increased amperage and voltage in a compact and lightweight package.

At 50 per cent smaller in size and weight than competitive models, the Neptune series connectors are ideal for fast and easy interconnections to modular power equipment in most modular power applications.

Amphenol’s new IP68-8-rated connectors, which feature a dielectric strength of 1,800V, are available with plugs and receptacles from 30A through 400A at 600V.

The interconnects incorporate Amphenol’s Radsok system, an electrical terminal based on a hyperbolic grid configuration that enables lower-insertion forces than standard contacts, while increasing available amperage and voltage.

Neptune’s precision-machined aluminium components are high tensile-strength bar stock, finished with a hard coating to 40 points on the Rockwell C scale.

They are heat resistant to 750F (399C).

Operating temperature for the connector is -67F to +225F.

The Neptune line is compatible with armoured and sheathed cable built to IEEE-45/UL1309, IEC, BS, DIN and JIC standards, as well as unarmored cables and flexible cables, including S, SO, SOOW-A, W and G-GC.

Cable housings with ample wire-space slip over the conductors after termination, eliminating cumbersome handling and seating of inserts with conductors attached.

The nickel silver-alloy plated contacts are interchangeable and reversible to suit specific needs.

Optional gold plating is available.

Conductors are readily terminated to easily accessible pressure-wire terminals.

Neptune connectors are resistant to 60 Gs, exceeding Mil-STD-167-1 vibration standards.

The new connectors feature double-lead Acme threads for easy coupling, eliminating the long setup and tear-down when replacing equipment.

The machined contacts are designed for longer life and mating cycles.

All receptacles are supplied with threaded environmental dust caps.

Plugs feature a mechanical clamp backshell and sealing grommets, with optional covers also available.
