TE Connectivity has introduced a new IPT-HD power bolt high-voltage connector for hybrid and electric vehicles.
Complying with ISO & LV standards, the company says the high-voltage connector offers a new shielding design, providing low-contact resistance and thicker options for conductor cross-sections used in MCU, E-axle, E-motor applications for renewable energy vehicles operating in harsh environments. Even after the vibration with one-, two- and three-position, the connector can be used in environments exposed to extreme temperatures (-40 to +125 degrees Celsius) and excessively high engine-level vibrations, the company says.
The IPT-HD power bolt series comes in 50 mm² and 70 mm² conductor cross-sections, with TE adding a 95 mm² option will be available soon. In addition to the traditional integral wiring harness assembly and machining process for mounting holes, the IPT-HD power bolt connector series provides a separate, single wiring harness.
