The Amphenol Industrial ePower series of connectors are designed for the demanding requirements of hybrid, electric vehicles, and utility truck electrical systems. The connectors are ideal for systems operating at 800 VDC to 1000 VDC with a 200 A to 500 A rating. The product incorporates the patented RADSOK® technology for higher amperage, lower T-rise, less resistance and mating force. It offers a 40% smaller footprint than three EMI shielding cable glands and easier operation of termination with shielded cable by a washer compressing the shield to the inside surface of the shell. The connector series covers 2 or 3 power contacts. As an example, one ePower 400 A connector can replace three conventional connectors, saving space and cost.
