Amphenol Industrial's Amphe-RXS
November 20, 2015
The Amphenol Industrial Products Group now offers a connection system that incorporates both power and signal contacts in one connector. Amphe-RXS uses Amphenol's RADSOK® terminals as power contacts and either standard or high vibration (AHVB) signal terminals to produce an all-inclusive connector.
Because of its unique design, this new robust, mixed connector is perfect for devices and systems where space is at a premium, such as 3-phase electric motors, hybrid or electric vehicles, motorcycles, scooters, as well as material handling systems to name a few.
The Amphe-RXS incorporates Amphenol's RADSOK® technology for higher amperage, lower t-rise, less resistance and lower mating forces. These power terminals can range in size from 2.4 mm to 5.7 mm (up to 120 A continuous), while its signal terminals can range from size 22 to size 16.
The all-in-one connection system can accommodate a variety of easy locking solutions ranging from plastic lock tabs to small screws. Lever locks or large jack screws, which are bulky, complex and often unreliable, are not needed due to the lower mating forces of the RADSOK®.
