High voltage connector designed for EV battery applications
TE Connectivity has introduced its AMP+ HVA 1200 HV Terminal and Connector System. The product is a significant addition to TE’s range of high voltage connectors for hybrid and all-electric vehicles. With the new AMP+ HVA1200 HV terminal and connector system (HVA 1200) automotive manufacturers benefit from a high performance interconnection system for their next-gen vehicles.
With a voltage rating of up to 1,000V and a current carrying capability of 100A at 85°C, the HVA 1200 connector system is specifically designed to ensure a safe and reliable connection between the charging interface, the on-board charger and the battery.
The system features a single header and two plugs deployable in both straight and right-angle connector applications. At its core is a newly designed PCON 12 HV terminal supporting a wire range from 5.0-16.0mm².
For maximum flexibility the header can be mated with 90- and 180° plugs. In addition, the system features critical built-in and UL-certified finger protection for HV touch safety.
“We are excited to be introducing our AMP+ HVA 1200 HV terminal and connector system to the market. We expect OEMs and device manufacturers to welcome its smart design for HV safety, performance, flexibility as well as ease-of-assembly,” said Sandra Kraft, Product Manager at TE.
"The compact packaging, UL-certified molded-in touch safety, together with its high modularity and flexibility, makes it a complete and robust solution for high voltage interconnections enabling next-generation mobility.”
