FXP Power Connector

FXP Connector Series - Lighter, smaller and more electrical capacity

The FXP Series is the rugged power connector for all mission critical power applications on rolling stock. Designed according to the latest European standard EN 50467 which includes requirements for fire and smoke compliancy EN 45545-2, IP66 and IP68 rating. By allowing multiple combinations with just ten variants this connector series saves weight, space and contains more electrical capacity up to 650 amps, 4000 volt.

The Railway market’s trend on weight reduction, dimension restrictions and electrical increasing capacity is creating a strong demand for creative solutions. TE Connectivity has developed the FleXible Power (FXP) Rail Power Connector Series providing a lighter, smaller connector series with enhanced electrical capacity against prior generations.
