This compact, energy-efficient connector is UL-qualified to 26A.

Amphe-OBTS is offered in a standard two-way 60VDC power configuration, a 60VDC two-way reverse gender, and a three-way 400VDC/250VAC connector. Standard current for the two-pole is 26A per contact, while the three-pole configuration supplies 16A per contact.

This new connector features a zinc shell construction with tin-nickel plating, bayonet locking, and 360-degree EMI shielding. It offers plug with screw termination contacts for field installation and a receptacle with crimp contacts.

This rugged, IP67-rated connector is UL 1977-certified, IEC 61984-certified, and IEC 60950-certified.

Amphe-OBTS has an operating temperature of -55°C to +105°C.
