Amphe-Power Connectors
with RADSOK Technology
SL-391-4
®
® Socket cylinder within female contact has several equally
spaced longitudinal beams twisted into a hyperbolic shape.
As male pin is inserted, axial members in the female half
deflect, imparting high current flow across the connection
with minimal voltage loss.
The hyperbolic, stamped grid configuration ensures a
large, coaxial, face-to-face surface area engagement.
Ideal for crimp termination applications requiring repeated
mating cycles and high current with a low milli-volt drop.
The RADSOK® Design
RADSOK® technology is based
upon a stamped and formed flat
grid, uniquely twisted into a
hyperbolic geometry to provide
robust, high density contact to the
mating pin contact. Most pin and
socket technologies rely upon
spring (beam element) properties
of the contact elements, which
tend to weaken over time. Unlike
most other pin and socket solu-
tions, the RADSOK® also utlilizes
the tensile strength properties of
the flat, high conductivity alloy
grid. This provides the high normal
forces required for conductivity
while also providing large conduc-
tive surface area. Correspondingly
low voltage drop and low tempera-
ture rise are also achieved while
maintaining low insertion forces.
The RADSOK® (RADial SOcKet) High Amperage, Low Insertion
Force Electrical Terminal provides value to your purchasing,
engineering, quality and manufacturing objectives.

Standard RADSOK® socket
contacts for Amphe-Power® connec-
tors are available in sizes 0, 4, 8 and
12 crimp or solder. Specific sizes can
often be produced more economically
than other fastening solutions. Amphe-
nol can tailor the contact design to
exact customer needs.

Standard and Custom-Developed Solutions
In addition to the various standard sizes of RADSOK components, custom-
developed solutions are also available. See the new RADSOK® products
that have been developed on the special pages at the end of this brochure.
Amphenol has the global design, engineering and manufacturing resources
to provide RADSOK® sockets pressed into busbars, crimped to cables,
assembled into connectors, assembled into customer or Amphenol de-
signed specialized electrical devices, or as stand-alone components.
Amphenol also manufactures a full compliment of mating pin contacts for
any application.
Steady-state current capacities for standard RADSOK products range from
50 amps to over 1000 amps.
Standard contact plating is typically Silver (Ag) although many other plating
specifications may be used for your application.
Amphenol connectors with RADSOK® contacts are offered with a variety of
positive-locking features (HiLokTM and SurLokTM) that insure and maintain
fully-mated connections.
Sealing (SealtacTM) and high voltage hot break options are available within
the RADSOK® itself or within a very wide range of IP rated connector
housings to provide environmental protection to the contact area.

HIGH RELIABILITY
Unique RADSOK® design and construction technology create
an electrical contact interface that exceeds typical intercon-
nect requirements. Applications in aerospace, medical,
industrial, automotive, mining, offshore, and other harsh
environments depend on high reliability of the Amphenol
RADSOK® technology.
LOW CONTACT ENGAGEMENT/SEPARATION
FORCES
The hyperbolic lamella socket contact construction distrib-
utes normal forces over a high percentage of the mating pin
surface. This creates a smooth, even engagement effort.
This force distribution also contributes to excellent perfor-
mance in vibration applications with resistance to typical
fretting corrosion.
LOW CONTACT RESISTANCE
The large interface area between the socket lamella and pin
surface result in very low contact resistance, enabling the
RADSOK® contacts’ high current ratings compared to tradi-
tional power contact designs.
HIGH MATING CYCLE DURABILITY
RADSOK® contacts with typical silver plating finishes have
demonstrated survival of 20,000 mating cycles. Specialized
plating and contact lubricants can extend cycle life to
200,000 matings or higher. Even with continuous exposure to
harsh environmental abuse (salt, sand, and high humidity),
RADSOK® contacts have been tested to maintain low contact
resistance beyond 10,000 mating cycles.

Current
Based on single conductors in free air. Wire cross-section

HIGH RELIABILITY
Unique RADSOK® design and construction technology create
an electrical contact interface that exceeds typical intercon-
nect requirements. Applications in aerospace, medical,
industrial, automotive, mining, offshore, and other harsh
environments depend on high reliability of the Amphenol
RADSOK® technology.
LOW CONTACT ENGAGEMENT/SEPARATION
FORCES
The hyperbolic lamella socket contact construction distrib-
utes normal forces over a high percentage of the mating pin
surface. This creates a smooth, even engagement effort.
This force distribution also contributes to excellent perfor-
mance in vibration applications with resistance to typical
fretting corrosion.
LOW CONTACT RESISTANCE
The large interface area between the socket lamella and pin
surface result in very low contact resistance, enabling the
RADSOK® contacts’ high current ratings compared to tradi-
tional power contact designs.
HIGH MATING CYCLE DURABILITY
RADSOK® contacts with typical silver plating finishes have
demonstrated survival of 20,000 mating cycles. Specialized
plating and contact lubricants can extend cycle life to
200,000 matings or higher. Even with continuous exposure to
harsh environmental abuse (salt, sand, and high humidity),
RADSOK® contacts have been tested to maintain low contact
resistance beyond 10,000 mating cycles.

The Amphe-Power® Family of Connectors
For High Power Applications
The Amphe-Power® Series consists of three of the time-tested and reliable families of
Amphenol Industrial Connectors, all of which are MIL-5015 styles, medium to heavy
duty cylindricals. These series, enhanced with RADSOK® sockets, can now handle up
to 50% higher amperages. Current Amphe-Power® product lines support from 50A to
1000A continuous duty.
AMPHE-POWER® P-LOK
AMPHE-POWER® GT
AMPHE-POWER® 5015
Rapid mating with a push-pull, spring loaded coupling system -
audible & tactile confirmation of full mating.
Environmental sealing to IP67 specification levels - front and rear
O-ring seals and gaskets as well as compression grommets
designed to seal on the cable jacket.
Neoprene inserts are bonded to the connector shell for ease of
assembly.
One piece keyed aluminum shell, finished in black hard-coat
plating - provides a strong industrial grade connector, engineered
for a long service life.
Reverse bayonet coupling connector with an audible, tactile and
visual full mating feature.
Heavy duty, rugged shells with a wide variety of backshell options.
Inserts available in Neoprene or Viton.
Waterproof construction and available with over-molded coupling
nut for added damage protection and increased gripping surface.
Variety of plating options including non-cadmium zinc cobalt (black
or green), non-conductive colorized anodic plating.
Durable, field proven cylindrical connector derived from MIL-5015
family.
Threaded coupling connector with resilient Neoprene inserts,
single key/keyway polarization.
Styles include: solid shell for general, non-environmental applica-
tions; pressurized style for use on pressurized bulkheads or
pressure barriers; environmental resisting style with strain relief;
lighter weight and shorter environmental resisting style.
