Connector from Amphenol Withstands Harsh Environments

Tru-Loc ideal for use in automotive, heavy equipment and rail applications

Sidney, N.Y. April 2014 – Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, now offers a connector family with 1.5 mm socket contacts featuring Amphenol’s RADSOK technology.  Tru-Loc’s rugged, compact, thermoplastic construction makes it ideal for use in harsh environments where high vibration and caustic fluids are present.

Offered in a 2-way, 4-way or 6-way plug and receptacle in-line system, Tru-Loc is rated to 13 Amps continuous (with 16 gauge cable).  It is designed to perform in demanding environments such as under valve covers on diesel engines to mate to fuel injectors. It can withstand vibrations up to 32 Grms, and the interfacial seal is molded out of a fluroelastomer material to withstand exposure to many chemicals.

This cost-efficient Tru-Loc series has an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C, with higher temperatures rated to 150°C available upon request. Tru-Loc has an IP67 rating when mated. The connector’s stamped and formed terminals are RoHS complaint and can crimp to wire gauges ranging from 0.8-1.3 mm².

Tru-Loc can be designed by Amphenol’s engineering team to mate to a device, splitter, sensor, as well as become a pass through connector, or be tailored to customer specifications upon request.
