HPS40-2 2+2


In cooperation with well-known OEMs, Hirschmann Automotive developed a future-oriented system:


the HIRSCHMANN AUTOMOTIVE PowerStar high-voltage connectors. The innovative solutions fulfill highest quality requirements and comply with global automotive standards.


The HIRSCHMANN AUTOMOTIVE PowerStar 40-1 and the new generation HIRSCHMANN AUTOMOTIVE PowerStar 40-2 are particularly impressive due to their optimized design and low weight. The connectors are watertight and fully efficient even at high temperatures – thus ensuring safe operation even under harsh environmental conditions. The systems are easy to assemble, have an integrated interlock and a circumferential shield transition for secure connection and disconnection.
