The Amphenol HP series offers 25 amp rating in a secure-locking, compact housing, and meets all the current safety standards. The series offers a 3-pole connection, with a pre-mating earth connection and compact design. Two secure chuck cable strain clamps are supplied, one for 5-7.5mm cable diameter; one for 7.5mm-15mm. Locking is by the twistlock principle with metal latch.
Cable connectors have screw terminals (max. wire size 2.5mm), panel connectors have 'Faston' 4.8 × 0.5mm 'spade' terminals. HP panel connectors have plain mounting holes.
The series has two variants, the A (inlet) and B (outlet) types. Both are similar but have different keying to prevent mismating and are different colours. This means it is impossible to produce a short circuit with correctly wired connectors.
Type F is for power inlet, and is colour coded blue (equivalent in function to IEC 60320 C13 cable female and C14 panel male). Type FG is for power outlet and is colour coded grey (equivalent in function to IEC 60320 type F panel female and type E cable male).
Note:- Cable connectors will only mate with their corresponding panel connector type. e.g. Mains Input cable connectors will only mate with Mains Input panel connector (both blue). Mains Output cable connectors will only mate with Mains Output cable connectors (both grey).
