Amphenol® Amphe®-GT Reverse Bayonet Connectors for Power Applications
Amphenol introduces the new Composite GT series of connectors, with full worldwide approval from a major server manufacturer, for use as the environmental server power connector. Featuring a high-performance composite plug shell, coupling nut, receptacle, and hardware, this GT meets all of the specifications for high power process control and server applications.
Additional features include the RADSOK High Amperage Socket Contact Technology, enabling increased current ratings to 120A on individual contacts.
The RADSOK (RADial SOcKet) High Amperage, Low Insertion Force Socket Contact provides value to your purchasing, engineering, quality and manufacturing objectives. RADSOK technology is based upon a stamped and formed flat grid, uniquely twisted into a hyperbolic geometry to provide robust, high-density contact to the mating pin contact. Most pin and socket technologies rely upon spring (beam element) properties of the contact elements, which tend to weaken over time. Unlike most other pin and socket solutions, RADSOK also utilizes the tensile strength properties of the flat, high conductivity alloy grid. This provides the high normal forces required for conductivity while also providing large conductive surface area. Correspondingly low voltage drop and low temperature rise are also achieved while maintaining low insertion forces.
Compression (setscrew) wire termination to the 4/6AWG or 8/10AWG conductors allows easy field replacement of pin or socket contacts, or complete plug and receptacle assemblies, without requiring specialized tooling.
