The latest range of high-power, high-voltage connectors from Amphenol can now be sourced through distributor Powell Electronics.

They are designed for high-voltage and high-current systems in E-Flight, E-VTOL and hybrid applications and power distribution units.

Raptor connectors are also ideal for termination of screened HV power cables in aerospace applications.

Based on the successful and proven Amphenol Rhino series for ground power applications, but now re-engineered for aerospace applications and using the new TALON contacts from Amphenol, Raptor connectors are available in shell sizes 15 to 25.

They benefit from many new features such as a very high temperature capability of up to +200°C, IP68 sealing, increased creepage and clearance distances as well as an anti-decoupling ratchet mechanism on both coupling ring and backshell, ensuring a reliable connection even under high vibrations.

With superior EMC performance, Electroless Nickel plating and a high voltage insulation system the Raptor connector series ensures a reliable connection for high power e-flight systems.
