AMP Power Lock Connectors have hermaphroditic housing and contact designs. The hermaphroditic housings are also modular in design and permit the clustering of connectors of the same series. Housings are made of impact resistant thermoplastic with stainless steel locking springs for contact stability. Terminals are available in strip and loose piece form with a material choice of silver, or gold plated copper. Contacts for Series I Connectors accept a wire size range of 18-12 AWG and contacts for Series II Connectors accept a wire size range of 10-6 AWG. Both insert easily into housings where integral locking springs provide positive retention.
AMP Power Lock Connectors can be adapted to most high current applications and may be used as free-hanging, surface mounted and thru-panel mounted connectors, or when posted contacts are used, they can be used on printed circuits.
Precision formed contacts are available in strip form for automatic machine application, providing maximum production and minimum assembly time.
