Amphenol Amphe-EX EXM-A02 | ATEX & IECEx Connectors

Zone 1 & Zone 2 Hazardous Areas | Explosion Proof

The Amphe-EX range of hazardous area connectors, manufactured by Amphenol, is designed for use in ATEX and IECEx rated hazardous locations and potentially explosive atmospheres.

AMPHE-EX connectors are equipped to handle signal, power, RF or fibre optic requirements, even in the most onshore or offshore harsh and hazardous environments.

AMPHE-EX offers a complete array of insert patterns, ranging from 2 # 20 contacts, up to 79 # 22D contacts.

In addition there are several connector shell variations available including panel mount receptacle types.

Amphenol is able to provide RJ45 connections and fibre optic termini into an ATEX and IECEx approved interconnect solution.

Chemical Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, Petrochemical Refineries, Land and Offshore Drilling Platforms are just a few of the areas where these hazardous area connectors will provide increased performance.

AMPHE-EX connectors are made from machined aluminium components, and plated in a hard anodic coating designed to withstand extreme environments. Double-lead acme threads allow for a self cleaning mating action that does not clog under adverse conditions of ice, snow, mud or sand.

The materials and design features of the Amphenol AMPHE-EX range have been selected to satisfy the stringent requirements of the Military and Aerospace industries. These connectors combine electrical and mechanical capabilities that equal or exceed many of the parameters established by the Military specification MIL-5015.

Connector specification

High Tensile Strength Aluminium: Bar Stock components precision machined, with points of impact designed for extra strength.

Hard Anodic Plating: All machined aluminium parts are finished with a hard, scratch resistant coating per Mil-A-8625, Type III. (300 days salt spray performance).

Easily Accessible Wire Terminals: Conductors are readily terminated to contacts. Cable housings are slipped over conductors after terminating. Eliminates cumbersome handling and seating of inserts with conductors attached.

Large Wire Spacing: Ample wire space is provided in cable housings and hardware.

Cable Options: Cable gland terminations available to allow variety of cable types including unarmoured, armoured and sheathed cable built to the IEEE-45, UL1309, IEC, BS, DIN and JIC standards. Flexible cables like SOOW-A, W, G-GC and DLO constructions can also be used with the AMPHE-EX series connectors. For Cable Gland information, ask for Amphenol Cable Glands and Cord Grips catalogue # 12- 055.

Insert Variations: A broad variety of inserts are offered ranging from 2 # 20 awg, up to 79 # 22D awg contacts. Numerous hybrid inserts available that offer combination copper and Coax/Twinax. In addition, Fibre Optic and RJ45 options available.

Amphenol Industrial Products Group is pleased to provide web users with 3D STEP and IGES files of their EX connectors – ask T&D for details.
