Amphenol Raptor Connectors

Raptor is Amphenol LTD’s new range of connectors engineered for High Voltage and High Current systems in E-Flight, E-VTOL and hybrid applications.
Raptor is designed to provide partial discharge free performance at an operating voltage of 2.0KV AC(rms) at 35,000 ft, making it ideal for applications such as batteries, generators,
motors & power distribution units.
 
Raptor connectors are ideal for termination of screened HV power cables in Aerospace applications and the design of this range is based on the industry renowned proven Rhino series for ground power applications. Raptor has been re-engineered for Aerospace and using the new TALON contacts with a higher temperature capability up to 200°C.
With IP68 sealing, an anti-decoupling ratchet mechanism on both coupling ring and backshell, ensuring a reliable connection even under high vibration. With superior EMC performance, Electroless Nickel plating and high voltage insulation system the Raptor connector series ensures a reliable connection for high power e-flight systems.
 
As an authorised partner, Ex-El Group can assist with the integration of Amphenol’s entire range of connector products to your application.
