Connectors provide environmental sealing

25 June 2014 Interconnection

Amphenol’s new A Series environmentally-sealed connectors are suitable for heavy-duty applications in harsh environments, including agricultural, alternative energy, automotive, marine and military equipment. They represent a balanced price-performance option and are fully compatible with existing industry-standard products. The A Series is field-serviceable, enabling fast diagnostics and saving down time.

The interconnects feature Amphenol Sine Systems RockSolid contact technology and their design incorporates an integral latching system to ensure definitive electrical and mechanical connection. The RoHS-compliant thermoplastic housings have excellent dielectric/mechanical properties and are highly durable, with extended UV resistance. Protection against environmental ingress is provided by an advanced sealing system consisting of a front and rear silicon multi-sealing perimeter.

Four different ranges are available within the A Series product line: the AT, ATP, AHD and ATM series, which together offer a wide choice of plug and receptacle styles, number of positions, contact sizes, AWG sizes and voltages. A number of optional modifications are available to meet special application requirements, including the AT strain relief series which offers specially designed wire cavities to protect each individual wire seal, eliminating stress on the rear seal and meeting IP67 sealing requirements.
