The latest high vibration brush terminal series from Amphenol offers zero fretting and is ideal for harsh environments

20 August 2015

Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, now offers a revolutionary high vibration brush terminal series designed to withstand harsh environments. It provides a superior electrical connection with 14 to 70 points of contact per mated pair by intermeshing two small wire bundles together.

The brush-like terminal technology is made up from multiple strands of high tensile strength wire bundled together on each side of the contact which is hooded for protection.  These compact size 22 signal terminals can accommodate up to 16 gage cable or a PCB tail and are rated up to 5 A continuous. 

Amphenol’s high vibration brush (AHVB) is designed to withstand vibrations of at least 53.8 grms at 8 hours per axis and 2,000 Hz. It is an innovation that can be used for all signal applications including in-lines, sensors, fuel systems, and control modules. It is ideal for on-engine applications and fixed positions where high vibration fret resistance and environmental performance is critical to function. 

Perfect for use in the heavy equipment, mining, medical and mass transit markets, the AHVB terminal series exhibits zero fretting and can handle up to 100,000 mating cycles. It has low insertion forces (70% up to 90% lower than traditional connectors), resulting in smaller footprint, higher I/O counts and less maintenance with levers and screws. The AHVB connection systems are rated IP67 when mated and are designed to pass SAE J2030 validation.
