ITT Interconnect Solutions is launching a new connector series developed to drive forward increased specifications in many new and future customer products. Trident High Voltage connectors are aimed at applications such as electric vehicles and industrial devices that require robust and secure interconnects able to handle high power and high voltage in a small form factor.
Based on ITT ICS's Trident Neptune connectors, the new Trident High Voltage series has a robust and shielded metal housing that is fully RoHS-compliant, yet is claimed to be 10 per cent smaller than comparable interconnects, saving both space and weight. Trident High Voltage connectors feature a new insulator body design that enables them to cope with an operating voltage of 500V (AC and DC) and a maximum operating current of 34A (for wire size 4.0mm2 at 20degC). Safe and reliable, Trident High Voltage connectors are fully VDE certified with 6kV rated impulse voltage. When mated, they remain sealed to IP67 against dust and water ingress up to a depth of 1m.
Applications include robotics and industrial automation, hybrid and electric vehicles, construction vehicles and agricultural machinery. Further details are available in an Applications Note that is freely downloadable from www.ittcannon.com.
