Power Series PCB Contacts

TE Connectivity's Power Series connectors provide a durable, quick connect/disconnect means of transmitting "power" levels of current and voltage (15-275 A, 600 V AC/DC). This product family is primarily comprised of one and two-pole (battery) connector housings, snap-in contacts and accessories. Housings are offered in various colors, and the two-pole housings have different polarization configurations. The assorted colors identify a different keying configuration and only like color housings will mate. This feature can be used to help identify different voltage ratings. Contacts are either cold-headed or stamped and formed, depending upon the connector series. AMP power series connectors are divided into eight series, based upon approximate current-carrying capability.


  • Eight series based upon approximate current carrying capability: 15 to 275 ampere rated
  • Voltage rating: 600 V AC/DC
  • Hermaphroditic (genderless) housings and contacts reduce inventory
  • Modular, single-pole housings are stackable in four directions
  • Polarity (+ and -) molded into two-pole housings promotes proper wiring
  • Mechanical keys help prevent two different color housings from mating together
  • Stamped and formed, open barrel contacts (6 - 20 AWG) on reels for automatic and semi-automatic termination
  • Loose piece, cold-headed contacts (6 AWG - 300 MCM) for manual termination
  • Printed circuit board (pcb) contacts available in the 15/30/45 A series
  • AC/DC power supplies and charging systems
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Material handling equipment (i.e. forklifts)
  • Electric vehicle (i.e. golf carts and sweepers)
  • Industrial equipment
  • Amateur emergency radios
