Easy-to-install reverse bayonet coupling 

A new reverse bayonet coupling connector from Amphenol Industrial Operations is easy to install in the field, making maintenance effortless. The GTC-E Series, based on Amphenol’s GT Reverse Bayonet Coupling Connector Series, is ideal for use in rail and mass transit, heavy equipment, machine tools, and factory automation applications.

Amphenol GT Reverse Bayonet CouplingThis reliable new connector features a UL94-V0 hard plastic insert, and an easy-to-install and easy-to-remove crimp contact that uses industry standard crimp tooling to make on-site repairs and maintenance simple.

The connector’s rugged design can withstand the harshest environments while supplying high current power and signal. The GTC-E series includes a quick positive coupling that allows for fast mating and un-mating of connectors, an audible and tactile indication of full coupling for safety, and crimp termination that provides a stronger, more reliable termination method than soldering.

The connector features high shock and vibration capabilities making it suitable for high power connections. For higher amperage, lower t-rise, less resistance, and lower mating forces in a smaller footprint, RADSOK socket contacts are available.

The GTC-E Series has an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C. It can withstand up to 500 mating cycles.
