Single-pole high-power connectors for demanding high-reliability applications

Available now from Mouser, Amphenol's Rhino 38999 single-pole high-power
connectors are ideal for high-reliability applications, including vehicular,
aerospace, industrial, automation, mining, offshore and other harsh
environments.

The connectors combine the benefits of field-proven Mil-DTL-38999 Series III
circular connectors with hyperbolic contacts that extend the boundaries of
high-power connector technology.

The use of RADSOK contacts in Rhino 38999 connectors creates an electrical
interface that exceeds typical interconnect requirements. A hyperbolic
socket contact construction distributes normal forces over a high percentage
of the mating surface to ensure a smooth and even engagement force with
exceptionally high performance under vibration. The large surface area of
the socket contact also results in a very low contact resistance, enabling
much higher current ratings compared to other power contact designs, says
the company.
