High Power Contacts

Amphenol Aerospace's development of High Power Contacts is the foundation of our new High Power Products. The High Power Contacts allow for greater current carrying capacity, or amperage, and are able to withstand higher temperatures in the same sizes as current Mil-Spec style pin and socket contacts.Our Temper Grip Contacts which utilize a stainless steel napkin ring to prevent the beryllium copper tines from “relaxing” at higher temperatures and maintaining a greater area of true contact in all situations to decrease resistance, are rated for 220 amps and 200°C+ for Size 0 contacts. Our RADSOK Socket Contacts utilize a stamped and formed flat grid, uniquely twisted into a hyperbolic geometry to provide robust, high-density contact, are rated 250°C for Size 0 contacts.

The electrification of air systems and automobiles is not an idealistic technology of the future anymore; it’s here now. 

Next gen combat

Next Generation Ground Combat Vehicles

Whether it’s ground combat vehicles within the Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) family, such as the hybrid electric Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (eJLTV) and the Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV), or air vehicles such as electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) systems, the internal combustion engine continues to be phased out in favor of electric propulsion.

Electric aircraft technology is promising. But ground EVs are expected to make the biggest inroads in the near future, particularly military electric vehicles. Various militaries around the world have begun to invest in new electric and hybrid ground combat vehicle fleets, including pushing to retrofit existing internal combustion vehicles into hybrids.

And it’s not just powertrains that are changing; military ground combat vehicle cabins continue to be outfitted with further capabilities. The addition of onboard computer systems, advanced sensors, and more is transforming standard tactical vehicles into mobile command centers.

The technology is moving fast. Amphenol offers reliable, high powered connectors for manufacturers seeking electric mobility solutions as this crucial innovation in transportation technology continues to evolve.

 

EV Mobility Solutions require a Fast Charger

One of the central problems facing the mainstream adoption of EVs is the time it takes to charge them.

Current battery technology typically requires several hours to charge a standard multi passenger electric vehicle without at least 40kw of power. This requirement is even higher for electric air systems and more energy-intensive ground combat vehicles. This means high voltage charging systems are essential for the development of fast charging technology.

Amphenol offers several high amp and high voltage connectors capable of megawatt charging applications such as the Voltarius high voltage 38999 interconnect, rated at 1,000 volts per direct current at sea level.

Electric Vehicle Safety 

The immense power required to operate and charge electric vehicles requires safety considerations. One of the ways Amphenol connectors emphasize safety is utilizing deeper pins that interlock deeper with the receptacle. This means electric currents must travel a greater distance before they can cause a corona discharge, an important safety feature for high power applications such as eVTOL aircraft.

 

EV mobility

Air Mobility

Electric air vehicles are the next major innovation in air mobility, and eVTOL aircraft are leading the way. Utilizing features such as vectored thrust, tandem wings and advanced multicopter designs, these revolutionary aircraft have unique electrical assemblies and power requirements perfectly tailored for Amphenol’s suite of interconnect systems.
