Based on Amphenol’s 26482 series I, the UPT features a plastic shell with a metal coupling system and crimp termination. This lightweight connector has a smaller footprint and is easy to install in the field once it has been crimped in the facility. The UPT contact features three retention tines that can easily be inserted and ensure retention force.

Used in buses, diesel engines, Class 8 trucks, trailers, garbage trucks, tractors as well as in construction equipment, industrial pumping and power generation, the UPT offers bayonet coupling for quick mating and reliability.

These RoHS compliant connectors are environmentally sealed and have an operating temperature range of -40° C to +125° C. They offer jam nut and square flange mounts for 32-way and 48-way contacts.

Amphenol’s UPT contacts are available in either gold or tin. Multiple back shell sealing accessories are available upon request.
