Hybrid and Electromobility
Both hybrid vehicles and electric cars require connector technology that is capable of safely and reliably withstanding electrical, thermal, and mechanical loads. Guaranteeing the technical excellence of the components is just as important as providing affordable, flexible processing technology. To ensure that high electric currents of up to 1,000 VDC can be transmitted throughout vehicles reliably and efficiently, Hirschmann Automotive worked with renowned OEMs on developing two pioneering systems: the HIRSCHMANN Automotive PowerStar (HPS) high-voltage connectors and the HPS distributor system.
Application Areas in Vehicles
The HPS connectors are used to connect all ancillary units, such as air-conditioning compressors, tankless water heaters, converters and all on-board chargers available on the market. The HPS distributors enable efficient power distribution for the expansion of in-vehicle high-voltage networks. The HIRSCHMANN Automotive PowerStar In-Line Connector is a safe separating point that enables the flexible design of in-vehicle high-voltage electrical systems.
