New Ampseal high temperature connectors

As an extension of its Ampseal 16 series, TE Connectivity (TE) announced that its new Ampseal 16 high temperature connectors are now available. The new connectors offer greater temperature range and increased design options, the company said.
Compared to 257°F (125°C) for the standard Ampseal 16 connectors, Ampseal 16 high temperature connectors allow for a 20% increased temperature range of up to 302°F. (150°C). They also have a higher flammability rating of UL94 V-0 and two sealing options for SAE and ISO wires.
Differentiated with a new gray housing color, the high temperature variants can be easily identified and the four discrete color polarization keys are designed to prevent miss-mating. In combination with the fully assembled one-piece-design, Ampseal 16 high temperature connectors are a cost-effective, easy to handle and easy to assemble product line, TE Connectivity said.
Ampseal 16 connectors are engineered to provide reliability and performance on the engine or transmission, under the hood, for motor controllers, solenoid interfaces, on the chassis, or in the cab. The rectangular, thermoplastic housings offer a wide operating temperature range and silicone rear wire and interface seals are designed to allow the connectors to withstand conditions of extreme temperature and moisture.
