Because of its unique design, this new robust, mixed connector is perfect for devices and systems where space is at a premium, such as 3-phase electric motors, hybrid or electric vehicles, motorcycles, scooters, as well as material handling systems to name a few. 

The Amphe-RXS incorporates Amphenol's RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower t-rise, less resistance and lower mating forces. These power terminals can range in size from 2.4 mm to 5.7 mm (up to 120 A continuous), while its signal terminals can range from size 22 to size 16. 

The all-in-one connection system can accommodate a variety of easy locking solutions ranging from plastic lock tabs to small screws.   Lever locks or large jack screws, which are bulky, complex and often unreliable, are not needed due to the lower mating forces of the RADSOK.

The cost-effective Amphe-RXS offers a variety of custom options to meet the needs of any user including; sealing methods, crimp/solder or PCB mountings, as well as shielding or blind mating.  The connectors can also be overmolded with leads for a value added solution.

Technical Specifications

  • Uses RADSOK technology with power terminals ranging from 2.4 mm to 5.7 mm (up to 120 A continuous)
  • Signal terminals can use the high vibration AHVB technology and range from size 22 up to size 16
