Amphenol Industrial Global Operations, a global leader in interconnect systems, has expanded its Starline EX and Amphe-EX series of connectors to offer a higher level of corrosion resistance for use in harsh environments.

Designed for hazardous ATEX and IECEx applications, the rugged connectors are designed with ‘exceptional’ mating properties and are available in high grade 316 stainless steel.

Used in oil and gas offshore platforms, FPSO turret mounting equipment, marine environments and natural gas processing equipment, Amphenol’s Starline EX and Amphe-EX are threaded, flameproof and fabricated to prevent the mixture of explosive gases and the electrical circuits by means of tighter tolerances in mated junctions.

Approved for Zone 1 rated applications, both the Starline EX and Amphe-EX connectors eliminate hard wiring to terminal blocks enclosed in junction boxes and provide quick and safe interconnections to modular equipment.

Pricing for the Starline EX starts at $400 per mated set. Pricing for the Amphe-EX starts at $300 per mated set.
