Innovative FR cables and connectors for electric vehicles

Pinfa:   Hitachi Cable has developed what it says are the smallest compact connectors available for the demanding requirements of high power wiring in hybrid and electric vehicles, to be combined with the company’s special heat resistant cables (rated ISO6722 class D at 150°C and class F at 200°C). The former uses “halogen and heavy metal free” materials based on an ethylenic copolymer with metal hydroxide flame retardants to ensure self-extinguishing and low smoke for the insulation and sheath. The latter is fluorine resin cable Fluonlex ®. The connectors use a specific spring mechanism whereby high spring force is applied after inserting the connectors, and a single spring for multiple terminals, thus minimising size and improving vibration resistance.        News release
