Amphenol Low-Profile, Quick-Release RADLOK
Amphenol RADLOK is Low-Profile and has Quick-Release
Amphenol Industrial Global Operation introduced a low-profile, quick-release, high-power interconnect using Amphenol’s new R4 RADSOK technology. The new RADLOK product line provides low insertion and extraction forces with a high mating-cycle rating for high-power interconnects, making it perfect for frequent mating applications.
This high performance connection system features a versatile, low-profile, right-angle design, making it ideal for use in the automotive, heavy equipment, power/battery storage, hybrid-electric system, power interconnect, and factory automation markets. An integrated positive mechanical lock/release feature enhances cycle durability.
Amphenol’s cost-effective RADLOK product line can be used as a battery interconnect both internally (cell-to-cell) and externally (battery-to-battery or array-to-power storage units); in electric, hybrid electric, and fuel cell electric vehicles; as well as in servers connecting power to the board.
RADLOK employs Amphenol’s unique R4 RADSOK technology that lowers voltage drop, maximizes contact surface, and reduces temperature rise.
The connection system features a rugged, low-profile overmold design, making it impact-resistant. RADLOK is a preassembled one-piece overmold connector that helps to reduce end-user assembly costs. Color-coded for visual identification, the connectors are easy to install with a simple push and click.
These RoHS-compliant connectors have a maximum current rating of 400A, a maximum DC voltage rating of 1,000 V, and an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +125ºC. They are available in either crimp-on versions or integrated directly onto cable with customizable lug end configurations.
