Description:

Amphenol Aerospace’s Temper-Grip socket contact series is a high-current technology designed for use in high-temperature applications and is available with most Amphenol connectors. Temper-Grip contacts can increase ampacity by up to 40 percent, allowing you to increase the value of your system or potentially downsize your cable size and the space you occupy on your panel. Temper-Grip contacts will far outlast the temperature extremes of the standard connectors they can go into and are perfect for any high-temperature custom connector applications. Contact Amphenol for any connector applications exceeding 392 °F (200 °C). 

Features & Benefits:

High-Temperature Capability:
For use in high-temperature (392 °F/200 °C+) applications, the Temper-grip socket has been tested to maintain current capability in high-temperature situations where standard mil-spec socket contacts can begin to relax                 

"Napkin-Ring" Technology:
Proven design utilizing 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.

Currently Standard Product In:
High Power Series, MGT-5015, Tri-Power D38999, D38999 Series 3 (size 8 cavities only), Contact Amphenol for Availability In other product lines
