TE Connectivity introduces the PCON 12 one-position 90-degree unsealed connector, a unique and new power connection solution, as part of its comprehensive product portfolio of unsealed connectors for interior cabin applications.
Constructed of flame-retardant material, the connector is an excellent solution for supporting in-cabin power applications with a current-carrying ability of up to 60A at 90C. Due to its 90-degree cable exit configuration, it can be employed in extremely tight spaces inside the vehicle’s cabin.
The connector provides a one-position, unsealed power connection with positive and negative markings on every connector and can receive wire sizes up to 16mm2 to facilitate establishing high power connections. It also provides three polarisation key mating configurations, which stop polarity mismatches, as well as dual side-actuated snap-in locking features, which give an audible 'click' for an extra layer of security.
“The PCON 12 connector is not only the newest addition to our extensive product portfolio of unsealed connectors for In-Cabin Applications, it continues our tradition of being a leader in accelerating electric mobility in commercial transportation,” said Girish Devendra Medh, product manager for TE’s industrial and commercial transportation business. “Additionally, the PCON 12 is a simple, cost-efficient solution that meets customers’ high-power needs.”
The connector is idea for application within trucking, busing, agriculture and construction, and ATV/UTV vehicle manufacturers.
