Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, introduces a new generation of industrial power connectors for use in harsh industrial, commercial, data centre applications. The IP44 and IP67 rated Amphe-309 provides safe and reliable portable electrical connections for the most extreme environments.

The device

Ideal for use on construction sites and in commercial and agricultural installations as well as in the lighting and audio power industry, the Amphe-309 has a current rating from 16 A up to 125 A, and a maximum operating voltage of 690 VAC or 250 VDC, with low-voltage options as well. These easily recognisable and interchangeable devices feature a colour-coded system that matches amperage and voltage requirements, making them ideal for use in the field.

Extreme climate use

Used in extreme climates (both indoor and outdoor), these devices are available in a variety of designs from a simple plug to flexible customer-created combination units.

Amphe-309 is designed to withstand vibration, impact, dirt, moisture, corrosive elements as well as wash-downs. ATEX certified options available.

Amphenol’s Amphe-309 current range covers all clock positions in use and offers low profile, watertight, heavy duty and ATEX solutions. Each connector features a positive locking feature to stop accidental withdrawal or insertion of the pin while under load.
