Amphenol’s Upgraded Power Mount Connectors Provide More Secure Connection

October 2011 – Sidney, N.Y.- ( – Amphenol Industrial, a global leader in interconnect systems, has improved its Traction Motor Power Connector (TMPC) to include a color-coded power mounting flange with built-in locking keys to prevent the contact cable from slipping during use.

These new single-pin connectors are ideal for power distribution equipment and traction motor power supply applications.

Utilizing patented RADSOK technology, the TMPC allows for higher amperage, lower T-rise and insertion/removal forces than any other connector on the market. The increased amperage allows for more current to go through a single connection, increasing the efficiency of the power to the end use application.

The thermoplastic molded panel mounting flanges on the connectors have four mounting holes that allow users to bolt the connector directly to an aluminum or stainless steel panel without the need for mounting boards, further eliminating the need for additional mounting fixtures.

These square connectors meet the NEC AC/DC requirements and are designed to be used with IEEE Type P drilling cables ranging from 313 MCM to 777 MCM with contacts rated at 1,500 A. The connectors also feature color-coded mounting bases and cable side boots to help prevent cross mating while allowing for easier electrical phase identification.

The TMPC connector series features Hypalon molded insulation boots and covers that are resistant to oil, mud and sea water.

Pricing for the TMPC starts at $250 a mated set. Delivery is 6-8 weeks ARO.
