PowerLoad™ Backup and Integrated Drive Connectors

High-Vibration, High-Temperature Tolerant Power Distribution Connector Series for High-Altitude Aircraft Applications

PowerLoad™ is a high-vibration, high-temperature resistant connector series designed for high altitude aircraft power distribution applications. An innovative combination of low-resistance contacts and a one-piece composite thermoplastic insulator with aggressive contact cavity isolation results in a reliable high-current solution that optimizes wire-to-contact termination and weight reduction in power distribution cables. Designed for use in integrated drive generator and backup generator applications, PowerLoad is available in three- and six-contact layouts for both multiphase and high-frequency power systems. Removable wire-sealing grommet and wire separator allow for easy rear release of contacts and improved sealing of tape-wrapped wire.

  • PowerLoad 28-6 layout connector is rated at 500 volt at 50,000 ft. with a current of 45 amps per contact with 3 phase power in parallel at high frequency
  • Available configurations include a high-vibration self-locking coupling nut plug, panel-mount receptacle with stub-ACME mating threads, and bulkhead feed-thru for firewall applications
  • Aluminum class connectors are rated to 200°C operating temperature; passivated stainless steel designs rated to 230°C
