Power Connector Suits Electric Vehicles

12 August 2016

The ePower-Lite is a plastic power connector series designed to be used in the hybrid electric vehicle market. The series offers 2-pole, 3-pole and 4-pole options. The robust plastic shell can withstand high temperatures up to 125 °C and provides dielectric protection for the connector. With the company’s RADSOK® technology, the connector features higher amperage, lower T-rise and voltage drop, and less resistance.

The compact, plastic shell structure is lightweight with a small footprint, and is field installable and repairable. ePower-Lite also includes a CPA to provide connector position assurance that it is mated. 

Features include plastic shell, light weight, and a compact design. The connector is IP 67 and UL 94V-0 rated, provides low mating and un-mating force, and provides 100 mating cycles minimum.
