Connectors for automotive electronics

31 July 2019 Switches, Relays & Keypads

TE Connectivity’s HDSCS connector series is designed to meet the rigorous demands of the commercial vehicle industry and off-road applications that require high standards of performance. Made from a rugged UL94 V-0-rated thermoplastic, the connectors have an integrated secondary lock with a ‘poka-yoke’ feature that can be used for inline or flange-mounted applications in a wire-to-wire or wire-to-device configuration.

Rated to IP67 and IP6K9K (when used with a backshell), HDSCS connectors are available in 5 housing sizes with 4 keying options. They are offered in arrangements ranging from 2 to 18 positions. Solutions for CAN bus architecture are also available. Accessories include backshells, protection caps, cavity plugs and fixing slides.
