Heilind Electronics, a global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for Amphenol Industrial Operations, is now stocking the manufacturer’s ePower series of connectors. Featuring IP67-level sealing, these environmental connectors are designed for hybrid electric vehicles and other demanding electrical systems.
ePower connectors incorporate RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower T-rise, less resistance and reduced mating force. Each connector features a 500 to 1,000 Vdc rating and accommodates currents of 200 to 700 A. Additionally, because it covers two to three power contacts, a single ePower 400 A connector can replace three conventional connectors — ultimately saving both space and cost.
Another key feature of the ePower series is its strain relief architecture. A washer compresses the jacketed cable shield to the inside surface of the shell, resulting in simplified termination. Integrated EMI shielding and superior vibration resistance add to the robust performance of the connectors.
The ePower connector series is used in both the military-aerospace and industrial market segments, in applications like power converters, hybrid electric vehicles, heavy equipment, two- and three-phrase motors and starter generators.
