HVH-280 Series, Low Profile, up to 125°C Heat Resistant, Robust, Power Connectors
HIROSE Electric Co. Ltd, a world-class manufacturer in connectors, has introduced the HVH-280 Series power connectors for automotive applications.
The HVH-280 Series are low profile connectors with a 3-point high pressure female contact design that enables a high current capacity of 30A. There are two versions available which are waterproof or non-waterproof.
The series is designed with heat resistant materials to withstand severe temperature environments; the non-waterproof version can withstand temperature ranges up to 125°C and 120°C for the waterproof version. With this heat resistance capability the connector satisfies the needs of severe automotive requirements.
Along with heat resistance, the HVH-280 Series includes features which allow a reliable insertion of the contact and the provision of strong vibration resistance. The non-waterproof version is equipped with a retainer which ensures that the contacts are correctly assembled into the connector housing. The waterproof version comes with a CPA (Connector Position Assurance) which makes an accidental unmating of the connector impossible. Only by intentional activating of this CPA with a tool like e.g. a screwdriver, the main locking mechanism will be operational again.
