With the global drive to protect the environment and conserve energy, alternatives to fossil fuel are spearheading the demand for advanced, alternative energy vehicles. After years of development, manufacturers are continually looking for ways to ensure the quality and safety of hybrid and electric vehicles—especially for vibration and shielding performance. To meet this demand, TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced the new IPT-HD power bolt high-voltage connector
Complying with ISO & LV standards, TE’s IPT-HD power bolt 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 1- ,2- and 3- position, the connector can be used in environments exposed to extreme temperatures (-40 to +125 degrees Celsius) and excessively high engine-level vibrations.
“Providing our customers with products that help their vehicles operate safely and efficiently in harsh environments continues to be top of mind for us at TE,” said Kimmy Jin, product manager at TE. “Our new IPT-HD power bolt high-voltage connector is a reliable solution for alternative energy vehicles with its enhanced EMC performance, increased assembly efficiency and broader range use in applications.”
With an ever-increasing demand for flexible assembly options for a wide range of diverse applications, the IPT-HD power bolt series comes in 50 mm² and 70 mm² conductor cross-sections, with a 95 mm² option available soon. In addition to the traditional integral wiring harness assembly and an easy machining process for mounting holes, the IPT-HD power bolt connector series provides a separate, single wiring harness for increased assembly flexibility.
The IPT-HD power bolt high-voltage connector is widely used for a range of applications in demanding, high-current, high-vibration environments such as bus, truck, agricultural, construction, and passenger vehicles.
