Ideal for rugged, high vibration applications found in the heavy equipment and mining markets, these sealed, thermoplastic connectors are field installable and repairable, eliminating the need for costly, non-repairable splices.  The connection systems also feature clip slots for a variety of harness mounting solutions.

The size 8 system is rated to 70 amps continuous with the Radsok terminals and has a contact retention of 156 N. The size 12 system is rated to 35 amps continuous with the Radsok terminals and has a contact retention of 133 N. The ATHD series is RoHS compliant and has an IP67 rating.  Standard machined and stamped and formed contacts are also offered for both sizes with a variety of platings.  The size 12 system has special stamped and formed contacts that will crimp to 16 gage cable where less amperage is needed.

Both the size 8 and size 12 power contacts can perform up to 100 mating cycles and have an operating temperature range of -55 degrees C to 125 degrees C.  They each have an operating voltage of 1,000 VAC and dielectric withstanding voltage of 1,500 VAC.  Insulation resistance for each connector is 1,000 M Ohm.

Additional styles and custom solutions, including resin for higher temperatures up to 150 degrees C and seals for harsh fluid applications, are available upon request.
