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 mm ² / PE 25 mm ² / AC 6 mm ².
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 mm ² 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 .
