Amphenol’s enhanced power connector series features low profile, high current carrying capability

The Amphe-PD connector series is ideal where space is limited, such as in rack mount applications

ENDICOTT, NY, August 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Amphenol Industrial Operations, a global leader in interconnect systems, has enhanced its Amphe-PD series with two low-profile bi-directional power connectors that have the capability to carry high current. The 5.7mm Amphe-PD Mini and 5.7mm Amphe-PD Gen2 can be used to transfer power from a PSU/PDU to a CPU, GPU PCB.

Technical specifications

  • Can carry up to 150 A at 500 V DC
  • Offers wire terminations ranging from 6AWG at 2AWG
  • Uses proven RADSOK™ technology

The 5.7mm Amphe-PD Mini is designed to carry up to 120A at 500V DC. These connectors are available in busbar mount, right angle, and vertical SMT compatible PCB mount.

The Amphe-PD Gen2 5.7mm can carry a maximum current of 150A at 500V DC. They are available in black and red with a plastic housing and are available in a vertical SMT compatible PCB mount.

Both connectors offer wire terminations ranging from 6AWG at 2AWG and can transfer power from a wire harness to a circuit board or other power application.

Both connectors in this enhanced power connector series feature a small footprint, making them ideal for use in energy storage racks, data center equipment, servers, 5G, HPC and electrical appliances where space is limited. They can accommodate a reflow solder or an interference fit termination on the circuit board.

These 5.7mm connectors feature RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower T rise, less resistance and lower mating forces. This technology allows more power in a smaller footprint.

The connectors also offer a mechanical locking feature which locks the connector in the mated position.

The 5.7mm Amphe-PD Mini and 5.7mm Amphe-PD Gen2 are RoHS compliant and are available in UL-94 V0.
