4-way connector handles up to 500VDC and 34A

June 21, 2011 // By Julien Happich
ITT Interconnect Solutions has developed a high voltage connector series which can conduct ten times more VDC than standard APD interconnects. The new APD High Voltage connector can handle operating voltages of up to 500VDC and operating current of up to 34A while remaining cost effective and highly reliable.

The APD 4-way high voltage series suits automotive applications such as power distribution boxes, controls and junction boxes and also electric and hybrid vehicles. Increased voltage capacity has been made possible 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 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. The connector is fully VDE certified.
