Industry standard HV connectors - any interest?

Hi all,

Early next year I will be buying some ridgy-didge high voltage connectors from Amphenol.

I plan on getting some for battery to inverter connections, but they do three phase motor connectors as well.

Pricing is about US$50 each for the plugs and $16 each for the shrouded receptacles. These are IP67 rated plugs, and 6k9k when plugged in (i.e. put underwater-able).

It doesn't get much cheaper with numbers, but the shipping and telegraphic transfer is a killer.

Quick follow-up - the company will do the oxygen-free crimping for you. So if you are interested in some of these, make sure you order it with a pre-set length of 35/50/70 mm2 cable.

I'm going to order 5 sets of 50 mm2, 2-pin, 90 degree HVSL1000 plugs and receptacles to match. If anybody needs one get in touch and I should have a spare to sell.

Cheers,
