The electrification of the power train requires the usage of high current connectors at various different system components such as batteries, inverters, electric motors or power distribution units. Modularized manufacturing processes and service requirements support the need for removable connections. This led to the development of an integrated high current connector family that is applicable for passenger cars but also fulfils the requirements of heavy-duty applications including a uniform mounting and safety concept. Based on the patented 3-zone high current HICCON II contact system for 35mm2 and 50mm2 cables, straight and angled 2- and 3-pole connectors were designed, manufactured, tested and applied.
