Single Connector with new Six-terminal signal splitter

Tuesday, Nov 10, 2015

Amphenol Industrial Products Group now offers a signal splitter featuring six-terminal inputs that allow for higher combinations of functions in a single connector. The Tru-Loc splitter helps to reduce the number of connectors needed in an application.

Amphenol's new splitter receives power and signal from one cable and splits it into two equal, yet separate, sets of power and signal as output, saving money and space while allowing additional functionality.

Made from thermoplastic material and capable of operating in environments up to 150°C, the Tru-Loc splitter is ideal for use by OEMs in several markets. These include industrial automation, process control, power generation, diesel, LNG & gas engines, automotive sensing, cycling (electronic gear shifting) as well as the industrial internet markets.

These splitters are employed in CANbus Networks: CAN-high, CAN-low, ground or shielded, I/O power, low amperage power distribution as well as sensor harnessing. They feature 120 Ohm ±10% of controlled impedance between two sets of contact pairs perfect for multiple sets of sensors in the same network.  The mating plug connectors feature Amphenol's RADSOK socket contacts.

The Tru-Loc splitters offer up to 13 A current capability per contact and dielectric withstanding of 1,600 VAC rms. Amphenol's six-terminal signal splitter has an operating temperature range from -40°C to 150°C.
