The PS2 connector range consists of panel mount plugs for the battery module side and panel mount receptacles for the system rack side.
The PS2 features signal contacts with a current rating of up to 5A and power contacts of up to 300A. The signal contacts are crimp style which are easily inserted into a separate crimp housing which is then inserted into the main connector body. The power contacts are easily connected to the cables using a standard crimp contact and standard (M8) screw. Alternatively the power contacts can be connected to a BUS bar.
The power contact structure features multiple springs in a crown shape to decrease contact resistance and achieve high current capability. Furthermore the impact of vibration is reduced and reliability is guaranteed in harsh industrial environments.
A sequential mating structure is utilised to ensure correct mating of the connector. The longer signal contacts make the first mating contact, followed by the power contacts and finally the standard signal contacts to
complete the mating process and ensure safety.
The connector body has a unique floating structure. Each side of the connector body has indentations that can accept a floating screw. The clearance between the floating screw and panel absorb panel mounting
misalignment in X and Y directions up to + 2.5mm.
Ideal applications are storage battery applications where maintenance efficiency is needed.
