High-voltage power connector offers space savings

Developer of innovative connector solutions, Hirose, has announced a high-voltage waterproof connector for harsh environment conditions including automotive applications like electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs). Featuring a compact, low-profile design, the HVH-280 Series offers space-savings of up to 40% when compared to competing connectors.

The miniature HVH-280 connector provides rugged, vibration resistant performance via a two-point lock mechanism that meets the strict requirements of the automotive industry. The IP6k9k rated two-position power and two-positon signal connector delivers 30A and 600V AC/DC with excellent EMI/EMC shielding performance. The HVH-280 high-voltage power connector has a wide operational temperature range of -40 to +120°C.

Offering IPXXB finger protection to JIS C 9020, the HVH-280 Series has an interlock design that prohibits hot-swapping to provide additional safety measures for operators. The HVH-280 Series is available in three keying variations.

"Instead of a traditional four-point screw lock, the HVH-280 Series is equipped with a robust two-point lock that results in size and height reduction while still exceeding strict automotive reliability standards," said Bill Kysiak, Product Marketing Manager for Hirose Electric USA. "Offering cutting-edge technology, Hirose delivers high performance connectivity for next-generation automotive applications."

The HVH-280 Series is also often used in industrial environments including process machining where high pressure washing is common.
