Connectors fulfil LV215 requirements

Amphenol IPG’s ExcelImate S HVSL 800 connector fulfils the requirements of the LV215 industry standard for electric vehicle applications. HVIL contacts, in conjunction with a double- secured locking system and IP69K standard tightness, ensure maximum safety, especially in harsh environments. This smaller version of the HVSL 1000 ExcelImate Plus series was specially developed for power transmission in inverters, rack power distribution units (PDUs) and batteries.

The connectors are available in two and three- pole versions for conductor cross-sections from 35 to 50mm2 and come in an orange- coloured thermoplastic housing with contacts made from a silver-plated copper alloy. They can withstand a rated voltage up to 1,000V at a rated current up to 180A and work reliably in a temperature range of -40 to 125°C. Their robust reliability makes them ideal for applications in e-mobility.
