Produced from brass, tinned brass, nickel-plated steel, copper-plated steel, phosphor-bronze and many other materials including clad and inlaid alloys, ETCO EV connectors’ part sizes can range from 0.004-0.090 in. thick with ±0.0005-in. tolerances, depending upon the material and configuration. The firm currently produces 1800 standard automotive parts that meet IATF 16949:2016, SAE J2031 & 2032, and ISO 9001:2015 standards.
