    Smiths Connectors' Thermocouple probe is an ungrounded, thermally conductive probe used for the measurement of variations in temperature. This probe is ideal for applications such as thermostat testing, or any application in which accurate local temperature local temperature data is needed. The Thermocouple probe’s unique design insures that the wires are internally fixed. This is done to prevent the two thermocouple wires from becoming dislodged from the plunger head cavity. This result is increased durability, which extends the service life of the probe.

    A Switch Probe is a spring contact probe and receptacle combination that is normally open, and after a designated travel the switch probe closes. The most common use for switch probes is in the cable harness testing industry. The switch probe is used to verify the correct location of a terminal in a connector while checking the retention force as well. Switch probes also verify the presence of nonconductive components such as caps for connectors or devices on a circuit board. Smiths Connectors offers three standard sizes of switch probes.

    INNOVATIVE MODULAR DESIGN The EasyPower Series is part of the Transformer range, a comprehensive series of high density, modular connectors for all on-board power applications within the rail market. The Transformer’s modularity enables customers to design their own solution by supplying the elementary components of the whole connector. It employs a unique do-it-yourself system based on the building block principle. The connector is suitable for any applications requiring the transmission of very high currents such as power distribution, intercoaches and bogies. HIGH RELIABILITY The EasyPower Series is available in 1 to 4 pole versions, supporting up to 700A per pole and a voltage rating of 3600V. The EasyPower connectors can be supplied in a straight version, that allows for the easy mounting on the roof or under the car’s floor. A straight version with a shunt is also available to facilitate mounting between two cars. The connector uses the Smiths Connectors’ High Power Contact (HPC) technology in aluminum or copper that allows for more contact points to reduce overheating and to achieve low mating force during the connection. In addition, three contact sizes only are covering the cross section cables from 25mm² to 240mm², with consequent reduction of supply chain and cabling costs. IDEAL FOR RAIL INDUSTRY The EasyPower Series range is compliant with the main railway standards: NF F 61-030, EN 50647 and dEN 60373. The connectors also conform to EN 45545 fire and smoke standards and are made of plastic materials following NF F 101/102.
