TE Connectivity (TE), specializing in connectivity and sensors for a variety of industries, recently introduced the PCON 12 one-position, 90-degree unsealed connector, which is designed to fit into tight spaces within heavy-duty vehicles.
The industrial technology company says every connection counts when it comes to the productivity and reliability across the industrial and commercial transportation market. And the PCON 12, part of its lineup of unsealed connectors for inside-cabin applications, is TE’s newest power connection solution for the tight, often hot spaces inside HD cabs.
“The PCON 12 connector is not only the newest addition to our extensive product portfolio of unsealed connectors for In-Cabin Applications, it continues our tradition of being a leader in accelerating electric mobility in commercial transportation,” said Girish Devendra Medh, product manager for TE’s industrial and commercial transportation business.
“Additionally, the PCON 12 is a simple, cost-efficient solution that meets customers’ high-power needs.”
Made out of flame-retardant material, the PCON 12 connector supports in-cabin power applications with a current carrying capability of up to 60 amps at 90 degrees C, TE said. Thanks to its 90-degree cable exit configuration, it can be used in extremely tight spaces inside the vehicle’s cabin.
The PCON 12 connector offers a one-position, unsealed power connection with positive and negative markings on each connector and can accept wire sizes up to 16 square millimeters to allow establishing high power connections. It also offers three polarization key mating configurations, which prevent polarity mismatches, as well as dual side-actuated snap-in locking features, which provide an audible “click” for an added layer of security.
The PCON 12 connector is designed for use within trucking, busing, agriculture and construction, and ATV/UTV vehicle manufacturers. The primary application for this connector is inside the cabin to supply power where needed, with polarity variants shown on the housings for positive and negative connections.
