TE Connectivity has introduced AMPSEAL 16 high-temperature connectors. These new connectors provide greater temperature range and increased design options.

Compared to 125C for the standard AMPSEAL 16 connectors, AMPSEAL 16 high-temperature connectors provide for a 20% increased temperature range of up to 150C. They also offer a higher flammability rating of UL94 V-0 and two sealing options for SAE and ISO wires. Distinguished with a new grey coloured housing, these high-temperature variants can be easily identified, and the four discrete colour polarisation keys help stop miss-mating. In combination with the fully assembled one-piece-design, the connectors are a cost-effective, simple to handle and easy to assemble product line.

“Meeting the needs of our customers is paramount and continues to be top of mind for us,” said Denis O’Sullivan, product manager at TE Connectivity. “Our new AMPSEAL 16 high-temperature connectors offer a simple and reliable solution that enables customers to manage, purchase and efficiently stock supply chain.”

The connectors, targeted for truck and bus, off-road, heavy-duty industrial, recreational and agricultural industries, are an excellent solution for on-engine applications, after-treatment systems and other high-temperature applications increasing the design options throughout the vehicle or machine.
