Amphenol Intros RoHS-Compliant Circular Connectors
Star Line circular connectors.
Sidney, NY — Amphenol Industrial Operations, is offering a RoHS-compliant version of its Star-Line EX circular connectors and has reduced or eliminated the ozone depleting substances from them. Certified for use in Zone 1-llc hazardous environments, the connectors are typically used in harsh applications such as onshore and offshore oil drilling, petrochemical refineries, aircraft re- fueling stations, paint spray booths and in other manufacturing and production environments.

The electrical connectors provide quick and safe interconnections to modular equipment and eliminate the need for hard wiring to terminal blocks enclosed in junction boxes. Their lightweight, rugged, aluminum connector housings are precision-machined from

high-tensile-strength bar stock and finished with a hard anodized coating to 40 points on the Rockwell C scale. Stainless steel and brass housings are also available.

The company's RoHS-compliant Star-Line EX connectors have a dielectric strength of 1800V and heat resistance up to 750°F (399°C). In addition, the company states that it offers the industry's broadest range of backshell arrangements and contact inserts for power (up to 1135 amps at 1000V), signal (up to 143 contacts), and mixed power and control applications, which are interchangeable and reversible to suit specific needs. Contacts are made from copper with standard silver plating, and are available with optional gold plating.

The company will continue to offer the standard non-RoHS compliant version of these connectors for customers who are not restricted by RoHS compliance requirements.
