Buying into AGV innovation

Mouser Electronics is now stocking TE Connectivity’s HDC floating charge connectors for autonomously guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for a variety of warehouse automation applications.

The connectors feature a size-reduced hybrid design and floating system that enables AGV/AMRs to correct mating positions automatically. The floating design provides a 0.5mm tolerance.

The hybrid power and signal design comprises two 250V, 80A power pins with a rated impulse voltage of 4.0kV and four 60V, 10A signal pins with a rated impulse voltage of 1.5kV. The hybrid design also reduces package size, space consumption and weight requirements, easing vehicle miniaturisation in tough industrial environments. Offering up to 30,000 mating cycles, the connectors offer a reliable solution.

From a safety and regulatory standpoint, the connectors provide finger-touch protection. Each connector is UL1977, TUV and CE certified. The devices are also EN61984, IEC60068, IEC60512, IEC60529, IEC60664- 1, EN61373 and ISO6988 compliant.

Options include male/female inserts, male/female power contacts and male/female signal contacts.
