Distributor TTI Europe, is now stocking the new DuraEV battery charging and discharging connectors from Amphenol FCi (ACS).

They are suitable for both portable and fixed e-mobility battery applications in two-wheelers and three-wheelers. These hybrid connectors, which support 2-power and 4/6 signal pins, employ a patented contact system capable of carrying a continuous current of up to 70A.

The charging and discharging connectors are IP67-sealed in both mated and unmated conditions to prevent the ingress of dust and moisture – the DuraEV connectors come with an IP cap for the socket side and an optional IP cap for the plug side. In addition, the connectors are rated for 10,000 mating cycles and at temperatures from -20°C to +90°C.

The Poka-Yoke mechanism employed by the DuraEV connectors helps eliminate mis-mating errors, and the first mate last break (FMLB) power sequencing supports safe plugging. Finger protection helps ensure safe, manual handling during everyday use. In addition, the positive latch and connector position assurance (CPA) feature ensures easy mating and un-mating and provides secure locking.

“In recent years, the e-bike battery connection problem during charging and discharging has been well-documented with common issues including connector oxidation, water ingress, mis-mating and contact wear,” explains Dermot Byrne, Industry Marketing Director - Transportation at TTI Europe. “Amphenol’s DuraEV connectors enable e-mobility manufacturers to provide a robust, safe and reliable solution for both the e-bike and its owner.”
