Tyco Electronics has introduced the AMP Power Series 120 power connectors that are rated at 120A, 600V when using AWG 2 wires and are suitable for material handling equipment, electrical vehicles, electric utility vehicles, power supplies, rechargeable batteries and telecommunications equipment.

They employ a genderless housing design and are available as a two-pole battery connector or a single-pole general-purpose connector. The genderless design mates two identical connector halves so that only one housing part number is necessary.

The connectors use an impact-resistant, UL 94V-0 polycarbonate housing and silver-plated copper contacts that are suitable for up to 10,000 mating cycles. They also feature a self-cleaning capability that minimizes arcing by scraping corrosion from mating surfaces after each mating cycle.

The two-pole version is available in blue or gray while the single-pole is available in blue, black, white, green, or red. The single pole version allows stacking into multi-pole configurations with visual color-coding to match wires.
