ITT's new APD 4-way High Voltage Series connector conducts ten-times more VDC than standard APD interconnects
SANTA ANA, CA - ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects, and cable assemblies, has developed a high voltage connector series, which can conduct ten times more VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) than standard APD interconnects in the same form factor. The new APD High Voltage Series connector can handle operating voltages of up to 500VDC and operating current of up to 34A. The cost effective and highly reliable APD 4-way High Voltage Series connector suits automotive applications such as power distribution boxes, controls and junction boxes as well as electric and hybrid vehicles.
Smaller and lighter than other similar interconnects currently on the market, ITT's APD 4-way High Voltage Series has identical dimensions and layout compared to a standard APD 4-way connector.
The increased performance and high-voltage throughput is achieved with no weight or size increase to the end product. The increased voltage capacity is accomplished by adjusting the design of the insulator body and by improving the air and creepage distance. Impulse voltage is rated at 3.5kV and operating current up to 34A for wire size 4.0mm2. The APD 4-way High Voltage Series connector is bayonet mated and rated to IP67, increasing to IP69k when using individual wire sealing. Other product features include 3.5kV rated impulse voltage. ITT's APD 4-way High Voltage Series is fully VDE certified.
Additional applications include agricultural machinery, industrial automation and robotics. Further details are available in an Applications Note downloadable from: www.ittcannon.com
