TE Connectivity introduces new hybrid and electric mobility products to meet the unique needs of the commercial transportation market

High voltage accessory connectors and charging inlets designed specifically for ultra-rugged applications while addressing safety and reliability requirements

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – October 5, 2021 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in innovative connectivity solutions for Industrial and Commercial Transportation (ICT), is introducing three new products for the hybrid and electric commercial transportation market. As the world quickly shifts away from internal combustion engines towards hybrid and electric mobility, the ICT market is key to meeting worldwide goals of electrified transport, lowered emissions and a cleaner planet. TE is taking major steps in the electrification revolution by offering a new trio of products squarely aimed at helping ICT customers meet the challenges of tomorrow.

The new IPT-HD power bolt connector performs exceptionally well when exposed to extreme temperatures (-40oC to 125oC) and, thanks to its low contact resistance design, can withstand excessively high engine-level vibrations. The IPT-HD power bolt high-voltage connector features a new shielding design that complies with ISO and LV standards, as well as thicker options for conductor cross-sections used in MCU (Motor Control Unit), E-axle and E-motor applications. To support diverse applications and increased assembly flexibility, the IPT-HD power bolt series can support up to 3 positions, as well as 50 mm² and 70 mm² conductor cross-sections with a 95 mm² option available soon. Furthermore, the IPT-HD power bolt connector series provides a separate, single wiring harness to help simplify the assembly process.

TE’s new ICT charging inlets are designed specifically for the rigorous requirements of industrial and commercial vehicles and are the optimal choice for fast and secure charging. These charging inlets are modular and highly customizable with various design options including cable exits to the left or right side. Capable of 10,000 mating cycles and charging at 250 VAC (at 32 A) and 1000 VDC (at 200 A), these charging inlets feature larger cable sizes than what is used in the Automotive market – DC 70 mm² / PE 25 mm² / AC 6 mm². Safety features include an integrated actuator for end position sensing, integrated PT1000 temperature sensors for enhanced temperature monitoring and optional protective flaps to help keep out dust and moisture. With an LED charging indicator option available, end users can easily distinguish when the vehicle is actively charging. Kits and pigtail cable assemblies (in 1.5 m or 3 m lengths) are available to help ease supply chain and manufacturing worries.

The HVA HD400 high voltage accessories connector is TE’s new solution for high voltage accessory applications virtually anywhere within the vehicle. This versatile connectivity system is designed for use in applications such as HVAC, heaters, hydraulic pumps and electronic power steering. The compact and adaptable design allows for either 2 or 3 conductors in the same interface, handling 2.5, 4 and 6 mm² LV216 conductor cross-sections single-core cabling (multi-code and ISO cabling are in development). The HVA HD400 connector can perform reliably in extreme environments and can handle up to 1000 VDC and 60 A (at 80°C). Other features include an operating temperature of
-40°C to 140°C, dust and water ingress protection rating of IP68 and IP6K9K, contact position assurance (CPA) and the ability to withstand transmission-level vibrations.

“The road to electrification is complex and shifting in real time” said Sebastien Dupré, product manager at TE Connectivity’s Industrial and Commercial Transportation business unit. “We are prepared to evolve with our customers. To show our commitment, we are excited to introduce these three new products that address safety and reliability, and most importantly, provide the rugged designs needed to enable high performance in the extreme conditions unique to the ICT market.”

TDK Magnetic Sheets For EMI and NFC Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and TDK

Today’s dense, complex designs can be extremely challenging from an EMI perspective. Re-designs of PCBs to eliminate problems can be expensive and time consuming, and a manufacturing solution can be preferable. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Chris Burket of TDX about Flexield noise suppression sheets, which may be just what your design needs to get EMI under control.
