To help industrial and commercial transportation (ICT) manufacturers make the transition to electrification, TE Connectivity (TE) has developed its Hivonex connector and charging solutions. The portfolio provides a one-stop shop of modular, scalable products designed to withstand the harsh environments ICT vehicles operate in.
One of the key products in the portfolio is the new PowerTube connector series, which is a suitable choice for handling the large electrical loads found in EVs. The PowerTube connector series is comprised of modular and scalable connectors designed to handle large electrical loads. These connectors are manufactured to adapt to various designs and hold up to intense environmental demands.
Other products in the portfolio include the IPT-HD Power Bolt Connector, a bolted solution aimed at the motor control unit (MCU), E-axle, and E-motor applications that will withstand extreme temperatures and engine-level vibrations.
TE’s charging inlets were built specifically for ICT vehicles, and can be customized in various ways, including cable exit directions, LED charging indicators and weatherproof covers.
The HVA HD400 accessories connector is TE’s solution for high voltage accessory applications virtually anywhere within the vehicle, such as HVAC, heaters, hydraulic pumps, and electronic power steering. This solution is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures (-40°C to +140°C) and transmission-level vibrations, meets IP68/IP6K9K ratings and features a thoughtful design that allows two or three conductors in the same interface.
“TE’s Hivonex connector and charging solutions are guided by decades of engineering experience and expertise,” said Sebastien Dupre, director of product management for the E-mobility product portfolio at TE. “The Hivonex connector and charging products are designed to enable our customers’ vehicle designs to be relied upon in extreme environments – empowering safe connectivity, supreme scalability and high voltages of power for those operating in the field.”
