Hirose have introduced the EV1 series to meet with the increased demand for waterproof, high powered connectors offering advanced reliability for industrial equipment. The connector range consists of panel mounted plugs and receptacles that have the capacity to handle up to 180A current rating.
The overall size of the EV1 series has been designed with space saving in mind, the plug shell and receptacle housing are low profile. The panel flange on each connector features an innovative staggered design to save space on the panel. The connectors are securely fixed to the panel with M6 bolts.
The connector plug accepts cables with a conductor size of 20mm2 - 26.6mm2 . The cables are terminated to unique power crimp contacts which are quick and easy to terminate using standard JIS crimping tools. The power crimp contacts have a plastic tip to provide finger protection for safety (Test finger IEC 60601).
The receptacle can accept a 3mm thick BUS bar connection which is secured with standard M6 bolts. Cable can also be used which is terminated to the connector using a standard crimp contact and washer. The receptacle features unique contacts with crown shaped multiple contact points to decrease contact resistance and to resist against vibration. A plastic cover surrounds the rim of the contact to provide finger protection for safety.
(Test finger IEC 60601).
The waterproof structure of the connector is IP68/IPX9K compliant. This is achieved through strategically placed oil and weatherproof gaskets to prevent any water intrusion. An excellent shielding structure is provided through the secure connection of the cable, shell and panel for EMI prevention.
