HIROSE ELECTRIC has successfully developed a high contact reliability connector with a -40°C to 140 °C operating temperature that maintains the highest performance in vibration environments, including on-board powertrain.
High heat and vibration relief performance required
While the shift to hybrid cars and EV (electric vehicle) is gaining momentum worldwide, the motors and inverters used in these eco-cars are always subject to problems of heat generation and vibration. In addition, the lifespan of a car, which was said to be 10 years and 100,000 kilometers, is increasing rapidly, so vehicles need to be able to be operated safely for a long period of time. Therefore, automotive connectors must also be tough enough to withstand the high heat and vibration conditions of powertrains for long time spans.
Pursuing vehicle quality that withstands heat and vibration
The market needs of heat resistance and vibration resistance were used as criteria for our products. Such criteria was taken into account through repeated research and development. HIROSE have developed a product that satisfies the high quality required for in-vehicle connectivity. A unique floating structure solves the problem of contact failure caused by vibration. Therefore HIROSE have developed a small, easy-to-assemble connector with outstanding performance in vibration environments. That product is the Board-to-Board floating connector FX26, designed to withstand heat and vibration.
