Amphenol's APC Series circular connectors with plastic housings feature a three-stage ACME thread and a 2-way bayonet design for quick connection. The connectors' simple and innovative design significantly reduces installation time and contributes to robust protection - yet APC connectors are very cost effective.
Designed by Amphenol for use in industrial power and signal applications, the circular connectors with stamped and molded contacts are suitable for a wide range of applications, including manufacturing equipment, factory automation, agricultural machinery, material handling equipment, communications equipment, HVAC, lighting and signage, and rail and transportation vehicles and systems.
The APC Series' three-stage ACME thread, combined with the 2-way bayonet design, provides a quick and secure connection even under high forces. The ACME thread is an American thread form whose geometry enables the transmission of motion and high forces with high efficiency.
The lightweight, corrosion-resistant connectors feature a rugged design for harsh environments and are rated for 500 mating cycles. The APC series is ROHS compliant and can withstand up to 30A of current and has an insulation resistance of 500M at 500V DC. The connectors feature a self-locking mechanism and are IP67 rated when mated. They also meet UL 94 V-0 flammability, are UV resistant and have F1 classification.
