High-current IP68 / X9K waterproof connectors can carry up to 125A

Offering a current capacity of up to 125A, Hirose Electric's EV1 high-current waterproof connectors are IP67 water resistant in their unmated state (EV1-62RA-3SB, EV1-62RA-2SB), and IP68 / X9K water resistant when mated. The use of a special rubber component for the internal seals enhances oil and water resistance. Contacts can be crimped using readily-available JIS standard tools (JIS C 9711). The EV1 staggered panel flange design saves space. The lightweight shell is constructed of an aluminium alloy. The EV1's highly reliable contact structure allows for a high current capability, guards against vibration to the contact and decreases contact resistance. The metal shell enhances EMI shielding. Contact and connector design protects against accidental electrical shock using IEC 60601 test procedure, says the company.
