. Description

Bernier designed the POW connectors specially for equipments asking high current supply in harshenvironments.

MIL-DTL-38999 type connector with compact design, offering extended safety power range and signal contacts for data transfers & communication

Very Easy and Ergonomic Quick connection and disconnection system.

Our high-performance POW connectors with IP2X contact protection offer a current carrying capacity of up to 1000A and a contact resistance <5mΩ (depending on connector size)

In addition, our high-current connectors can be individually adapted to our customers’ applications and optimally designed for the specific requirements to create durable plug-in connections. 

. Applications



 Power Connectors

. Contact Technology 

The contact line used in POW connectors presents Mechanical and Electrical characteristics allowing electrical supply of equipments working under severe conditions and with many connections. It has been developed to optimize electrical contact due to a contact surface which is equivalent to the cable cross section and a weak insertion effort.

4 sizes of connectors: 300, 400, 600 and 700* – *Continuous Maximum Current Rate (EIA-364-70) (300 : 120 A | 400 : 300 A | 600 : 600 A | 700 : 1000 A)

2 types of configurations: Single power pole or Mixed power and signal.

3 types of shells: aluminum (standard), Stainless Steel and Plastic (options).


POW series include a circular single pole modular connector, high current handing capability inside a small size design. Used for electrical power supply & distribution architecture.

With its easy mating and quick release mechanism, the POW series is designed for mass production in terms of optimizing the connector behavior and guaranties a high reliability; it has both electrical and mechanical characteristics.

Easy to assemble and customized according to specifications.

Two configurations of the connector are available: at 90° and straight for panel and cable to cable applications. Possibility to have a 360° feature EMI/RFI shielding and sealed to IP67.

. Connector Technology

The metallic and watertight shells complete to bring the necessary toughness for the required high level reliability. The POW serie construction includes also the «Finger protection» function for user giving an exceptional ability to adapt to a multitude of applications and environments.


. Développement

POW connectors are appreciated for their flexibility to fit customer specifications.
Our Design team is able to propose versions answering to your needs. Reinforcements can be applied in case of use in harder climatic, ergonomic and electromagnetic conditions.
Caps and backshells can also be improved to bring a better ergonomics on your configuration.
