High-voltage Applications

High-voltage Applications

Trends such as the electrification of vehicles and other alternative drive technologies place new demands on plug connector systems. Here, it is not only the technical excellence of the components which plays an important role, but also the affordable and flexible processing technology. In collaboration with renowned OEMS, Hirschmann Automotive developed a forward-looking system – the HIRSCHMANN PowerStar high-voltage plug connectors.

The highest quality standards and innovative engineering solutions, taking into account global automotive standards, are a matter of course. The compact design and the use of the most modern and flexible processing technologies allow our products to be efficiently fitted into a confined space, while taking into account the cost situation.

HIRSCHMANN PowerStar 40-2

The HIRSCHMANN PowerStar 40-2 is particularly impressive due to its optimised design and low weight. The high-voltage plug connector is also fully efficient at high temperatures and water-tight according to IP6K9K, which ensures reliable operation even in tough ambient conditions. It is easy to configure, has an integrated interlock and circumferential shielding transition for safe connection and disconnection. The contact system HCT4 is an in-house development of Hirschmann Automotive. Upon request, device connections can be implemented in different variants and even space-saving multiple connections are possible. Of course, the high-voltage plug connectors meet the global standards of the automotive industry.
