Amphenol, a manufacturer of both connectors and interconnect systems specifically for applications within military, commercial aerospace and industrial markets, has recognised a distinct trend towards increased power and voltage requirements within such applications as military, hybrid and electric drive vehicles, military aircraft and C4I base stations.

The company will be highlighting its latest circular and rectangular power connectors developed for applications with high power capability and comprehensive safety requirements plus full RoHS compliance. Designed to meet various specifications, these connectors allow reliable performance even at high current and voltage ratings whilst different housing materials offer a choice of aluminium for a high strength to weight ratio or stainless steel and aluminium bronze for their corrosion resistance. Furthermore, the use of RADSOK contacts creates an electrical interface that exceeds typical interconnect requirements via a hyperbolic socket contact construction which distributes normal forces over a high percentage of the mating surface to ensure a smooth and even engagement force with exceptionally high performance under vibration. The Rhino 38999 Series High Power Connector will be highlighted at the show.

Also exhibited will be standard and customised filter connectors including products for EMC and EMP protection for sensitive circuit applications covering C4I systems, military and civil aerospace, vetronics plus industrial and power distribution systems.

To meet current and future applications where reduction in connector size and weight is imperative, the company offers design engineers high-performance miniature sealed, filtered, lightweight and blind-mate connectors.

Various interconnection solutions will be displayed to address high-end military, aerospace, automotive, marine and industrial markets.
