APD connectors from ITT ICS are sealed to IP69K and vibration proof to overcome transportation challenges



APD series transportation connectors from leading global connector manufacturer and supplier ITT Interconnect Solutions are specifically designed to overcome the harsh environments commonly found in heavy transportation applications. Sealed to IP67/IP69K (with individual wire sealing) and vibration resistant, ITT ICS's APD transportation interconnects include a wide range of 1- and 2- way high power and 4-way high voltage interconnects up to 51-way interface connectors, plus special sensors and PCB-type versions. A broad variety of layouts extends the range of possible end applications. Electrical specifications cover requirements up to 48VDC and up to 240A power. APD transportation connectors also provide a flexible platform for customised solutions. Manufactured from materials which are resistant to diesel, oil and brake fluids commonly found in heavy vehicles and agricultural equipment, APD connectors feature a proven bayonet locking system to cope with high vibration encountered in such applications. For ultra-heavy duty usage, the APD 19/51 way additionally offers a secondary locking feature for easy contact installation and guaranteed contact alignment. All APD connectors are colour-coded and have mechanical keying for ease of use. Examples of transportation applications include:

  • 1-way APD High Power - engine control unit; inverter box DC/AC
  • 4-way APD - air conditioning, cooling and heating systems, control units for video walls, high tension distribution boxes
  • 19-way APD - diesel engines in tractors
  • 51-way APD - cabin interface in agricultural machinery including tractors
Although originally designed for the transportation, off-road and special vehicle markets, APD interconnects are also a proven choice for military and industrial applications which demand a small, lightweight harsh-environment solution.
