Amphenol Industrial has announced that its Epower 400A connectors are IP67 rated and suitable for energy storage systems including mechanical, electrical, chemical and thermal.

The IP67-rated Epower 400A connectors are rated 1,000-volts DC and feature integrated EMI shielding.

These connectors meet the needs of modern electrification programs that require high voltage and high amperage.

Epower connectors are economical as they can replace up to three conventional connectors, saving on space and cost.

The lightweight and compact connector series features Amphenol’s patented Radsok technology that attains higher current ratings and lower contact resistance in comparison to other contact methods on the market.

With a 40 per cent smaller footprint, Amphenol’s Epower range of connectors offer more power in less space with the Radsok contact system, an electrical terminal based on a hyperbolic grid configuration allowing lower insertion forces and easier mating.

This system eliminates the need to run wires through bulky cable glands in a traditional three-phase motor assembly, resulting in a user-friendly, reliable connection with minimal maintenance issues.

The new connectors are available in two- and three-pin power configurations ranging from 100 to 500A per contact and can accommodate two small gauge signal contacts for high voltage interlock loop (HVIL).

The Epower connectors operate at 800V DC to 1,000V DC and can be used in a variety of applications including power converters, hybrid electric vehicles, heavy equipment electrification, two-and three-phase motors and starter generators.

The IP2X-style sockets are available in crimp, lug or bus bar termination, while cable plugs feature IP2X-style crimp pins and can accommodate shielded wires.

Wire sizes from 50 to 95mm can be used with the Epower connectors that feature an all-aluminium shell, strain relief for the jacketed cable incorporated into the shell and high vibration resistance.
