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.
