Interconnection


In-line power connectors

30 January 2019 Interconnection

Hirose has introduced the EF1 series to meet the requirement for smaller yet higher-performing power connectors for industrial applications. The EF1 series consists of a DIN-rail mount type in-line receptacle and plug, and a panel mount type in-line receptacle and plug which both accept high-power crimp contacts with the capacity to handle up to 160 A current rating.

The connector design allows the crimped cable to be inserted into the connector housing in a quick and user-friendly, one-step operation. The crimp contact can be easily terminated to the cable with a standard market commodity JIS C 9711 hand-tool.

The snap-in lock provides a positive tactile sensation to confirm correct mating engagement and secure connection. The unique shape of the internal spring contact and contact points allows the optimum contact force to maintain a highly reliable stable connection.

The housing features four different mating keying styles to prevent incorrect mating when multiple connectors are used. The connectors are available in a red colour to define the plus or minus connection. Suitable applications are power controllers, inverters, storage batteries, medical devices, BTS and robot controllers.
