Sidney, N.Y. – Amphenol Industrial Products Group releases SurLok Plus, a high current cabling system designed for energy storage in commercial and residential battery storage systems as well as electric and hybrid electric vehicles.
SurLok Plus, used by inverter and power supply manufacturers, is optimized for battery pack connections from 50 A to 400 A using a touch-safe interface. The cabling system is designed to accommodate dimensional constraints and features a right-angle RADSOK pin-and-socket connector. The patented RADSOK contact technology is said to significantly increase amperage, while reducing insertion force, temperature rise and voltage drop. RADSOK contacts provide a large contact area, while using the tensile strength properties of the flat, high conductivity alloy grid for the high normal forces required for conductivity, said Amphenol.
The cabling system is available in an unsealed configuration or IP67-rated, which offers environmental sealing to protect the system from the elements.
Availability: Four to six weeks ARO.
