AMP Power Series Connectors Overview

AMP Power Series connectors provide a durable, quick connect/disconnect means to transmit "power" levels of current and voltage (15-275 A, 600 V AC/DC). This product family is primarily comprised of single-pole and 2-pole (battery) connector housings, crimp snap-in contacts and accessories. Housings are offered in various colors. Two pole housings have different polarization configurations. The different colors identify a different keying configuration and only like color housings will mate. This feature can be used to help identify different voltage ratings. Contacts are either cold-headed or stamped and formed, depending upon the connector series. AMP power series connectors are divided into eight series, based upon approximate current-carrying capability.
