Amphenol Sine A Family | AT Series™ — High-Performing & Cost-Effective Thermoplastic Connectors:
AT Series™ connectors are a high-performance, cost-effective solution able to be used in a variety of interconnect applications: Heavy Duty, Transportation, Marine, Diagnostic, Military, Alternative Energy and Agricultural. They contain superior environmental seals and seal retention capabilities.
The connector design incorporates an integral latching system that ensures a definitive electrical and mechanical connection. Connector housings are manufactured with a thermoplastic material that is not only durable, but has excellent UV resistance, dielectric/mechanical properties and environmentally RoHS compliant. The sealing system is comprised of a front and rear silicone, multi-sealing perimeter against environmental ingress. Contacts are derived from quality copper alloy to ensure an electrically-reliable connection. AT Series™ connectors are compatible with other existing standard products industry-wide.
Current Capacity: Size 16, 13A (max)
Wire Range: Size 16 contacts will accept wire ranges of 14 thru 20AWG
Temperature: Operating temperature range: -55°C to +125°C at rated current
Dielectric Value: Meets or exceeds 1500 volts minimum
Drop Test: Shall not become detached or loosened when placed at 750mm and dropped to concrete eight times
Shock: No latch disengagement or discontinuity shall be the result when subjected to 50 g’s in each of three axis (X, Y & Z)
Vibration: Continued continuity without degradation to mechanical or physical attributes following vibration. (max acceleration 20 g’s at Sine sweep of 10-2000Hz)
Connector Terminal Retention: When subjected to a direct pull, contacts achieve a minimum pull-out force of 25 lbs.
Connector Retention: A mated connector subjected to a pulling force by the exiting wire bundle at 25 lbs. times the number of contacts to a maximum of 100 lbs. applying load for 30 seconds
Thermal Shock: Subjected to 10 cycles at -55°C to +125°C with no cracking, chipping or other damage detrimental to the normal operation of the connector
Insulation Resistance: 1000 megaohm minimum at 25°C
Mating Cycle Durability: Following 100 cycles of connection engagement and disengagement, degradation either mechanical or electrical is not evident
Contact Millivolt Drop: Size 16 contacts with 16AWG conductor - 100 mV drop max at 13A test current
Water Immersion: A mated connection, properly wired, placed in an oven at +125°C for 1 hour, then placed immediately in a depth of water of 1 meter for 4 hours without loss of electronic performance
