Industrial Products Group
Manufacturing connectors since 1932, we take pride that the Amphenol Industrial Products Group is the undisputed leader in interconnect systems for harsh environment applications. Such applications require a high degree of engineering sophistication and precision manufacturing capability. Innovations like our RADSOK® contact technology can provide roughly 50% more current through the same size pin. Connectors utilizing this RADSOK® technology will outperform similar products in the market hands down.

The Amphenol Industrial Products Group (AIPG), a division of the Amphenol Corporation, is the leading manufacturer of cylindrical connectors in the world. Amphenol Industrial's product lines consist of rectangular, standard miniature, fiber optic, EMI/EMP filter, and a variety of special application connectors.
