The company has released a new line 600V AMP power connectors that can handle up to 50A, making it suitable for use in electric vehicles, material handling equipment, industrial trucks and forklifts, and power supplies.

The two-pole connectors employ a genderless mating design that allows a mated pair to be assembled with two identical mating halves, and are rated for up to 10,000 mating cycles. The AMP power connectors accept wire sizes from 6AWG to 12AWG.

The connectors are fabricated using an impact-resistant UL 94V-0 polycarbonate housing, which is keyed and color-coded to prevent mismating. The housing color also designates the recommended application voltage per industry standard.

The cold-headed contacts are made of silver-plated copper and are available in three sizes. They feature a self-cleaning design, which minimizes arcing by scraping corrosion from mating surfaces after each mating cycle.

Stamped and formed contacts are available in reel form and in loose piece. Automated termination machines can be used to apply the stamped contact to wire.

Pricing for the housings, cold-headed contacts, and stamped and formed contacts are 93 cents, 36 cents, and 25 cents, respectively, in quantities of 5,000 units.
