ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects, and cable assemblies, has developed a new high-voltage connector series that features a robust and shielded metal housing that is fully RoHS compliant. Based on ITT ICS's Trident Neptune connectors, the new Trident High Voltage Series is 10% smaller than comparable interconnect solutions, saving both space and weight. The Trident High Voltage Series connectors feature a new insulator body design that is rated for operating voltage up to 500V (AC and DC) and maximum operating current of 34A (for wire size 4.0mm at 20degC). The rugged and reliable Trident High Voltage Series connectors are fully VDE certified and rated for 6KV impulse voltage. When mated, they remain sealed in conformance with IP67 against dust and water ingress up to a depth of 1m. "We designed the Trident High Voltage Series connectors for harsh environment applications that require robust and secure interconnects able to handle high power and high voltage in a small form factor interconnect," said Russell Paik, worldwide director of product management at ITT Interconnect Solutions. Applications include hybrid and electric vehicles, construction vehicles, agricultural machinery, robotics and industrial automation.
