TE Connectivity's AMPSEAL 16 high-temperature connectors are now available. These new connectors provide greater temperature range and improved design options.

Compared to 125C for the standard AMPSEAL 16 connectors, the new high-temperature connectors provide 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. Differentiated with a new grey coloured housing, these high-temperature variants can be readily identified, and the four discrete colour polarisation keys assist in preventing miss-mating. Together with the fully assembled one-piece-design, the connectors are a cost-effective, easy to handle and simple to assemble product line.

“Meeting the needs of our customers is paramount and continues to be top of mind for us,” said Gary Emery, 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 are aimed at truck and bus, off-road, heavy-duty industrial, recreational and agricultural industries. They are also an excellent solution for on-engine applications, after-treatment systems and other high-temperature applications enhancing the design options throughout the vehicle or machine.
