The Surlok Plus quick connect and locking system includes the features for high end battery systems to ensure safety and proper operation. The connectors use Amphenol’s low profile, quick mating RADSOK technology that significantly increases amperage, while reducing insertion force, temperature rise and voltage drop. It has a quick lock and press-to-release design and the connectors are IP67 rated in 5.7mm, 8.0mm, and 10.3mm sizes.

The connector system is aimed at electric vehicles, materials handling, hybrid electric vehicles, and in energy storage for commercial and residential battery storage systems as an alternative to common compression lugs.

The cost-effective connectors offer industry-standard crimp, screw, and busbar termination options, eliminating the need to purchase special torque tools and are easy to install.  SurLok Plus is optimized for battery pack connectors from 50 A to 400 A (sizes 5.7mm to 10.3mm) using a touch-safe interface.This high current cabling system is IP67-rated and comes in an unsealed configuration and sealed version offering excellent environmental sealing to protect the system from the elements. 

Delivery for the SurLok Plus is 8 weeks ARO.
