DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS — March 27, 2017 — Hirose, a leader in the development of innovative connector solutions, has developed a single-pole 160 Amp in-line power connector that supports a wide range of power control and battery applications. The high-current EF1 Series power connector utilizes a crimp contact that offers a quick and secure one-step connection. The snap-in lock produces a secure, locking connection and eliminates the need for contact screws, ensuring a stable and consistent connection.

The EF1 Series has a highly reliable contact spring design with multiple contact points. This design feature lowers the contact resistance and increases the current flow.

The EF1 Series connector is available in DIN rail and panel mount versions. Assembly is simple, and standard commercial crimp terminals can be used with the applicable 38mm2 (AWG#2) conductor size cable. Four types of keying are available to prevent mis-mating when using multiple connectors.

“The EF1 Series combines high-current capability with quick and easy assembly to offer a simple, straightforward power connector solution,” said Rick van Weezel, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Hirose Electric USA. “By eliminating the need for screws, the EF1 eliminates the need for continued retightening, reducing maintenance time and cost, while increasing connector security and reliability.”

The robust EF1 Series is well suited for a wide range of power controllers, power inverters, storage batteries, medical devices, base transceiver stations, and robot controllers.

The EF1 Series has a rated voltage of 1000V AC/DC, a contact resistance of 0.5 milliohms, and an operating temperature of -25 degree C to 105 degree C.

Hirose’s New High-current Power Connector Simplifies Installation And Maintenance

DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS — March 20, 2017 — Hirose, a leader in the development of innovative connector solutions, has launched a new high-current power supply connector with a snap-lock mechanism that ensures a safe and secure connection. Available in panel mount and DIN rail versions, the snap-lock EM35M Series power connector reduces wiring procedures and eliminates screw loosening commonly found in buss bar applications.

Designed for manufacturing power control boxes, generators, fuel batteries, and more, the EM35M Series power connector supports up to 50 Amps with an AWG #8 cable. The 4-position (three-phase power source + ground) connector offers flexible and customizable keying options that prevent mis-mating of multiple connectors. The EM25M Series power connector uses up to two keys on the plug and up to three keys on the receptacle for a total of ten keying combinations.

As a safety measure, the connector’s mating sequence design ensures the ground contact is connected first when mating, and last when unmating, to provide a proper ground before power is applied. In addition, the female contacts have a protective cover that reduces exposure and potential damage during cable assembly and delivery. Crimp termination via a standard JIS tool provides quick and easy installation and maintenance.

“The EM35M Series reduces installation time and increases cost savings because it requires much less wiring and eliminates screw tightening. In addition, the crimp termination does not require a special crimp termination tool, saving substantial time compared to solder termination,” said Rick van Weezel, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Hirose Electric USA.

The EM35M Series connector is TÜV and UL certified. The power connector has a rated voltage of 500V AC or 500V DC, contact resistance of 1 milliohm maximum, insulation resistance of 5000 Megaohm minimum, and an operating temperature of -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C.

New 12g Sdi Connector From Hirose Simplifies Pcb Layout, Reduces Labor & Decreases Assembly Time

New 12g Sdi Connector From Hirose Simplifies Pcb Layout, Reduces Labor & Decreases Assembly Time

DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS — March 15, 2017 — Hirose, a leader in the development of innovative connector solutions, has developed a serial digital interface (SDI) compliant connector that supports high transmission speeds up to 12Gbps. The miniature BNC75 Series radio frequency (RF) connector features an optimized center contact design that simplifies PCB layout and supports SMT processing, decreasing labor and assembly time.

The BNC75 Series connector supports 3G, 6G and 12G transmission, and is available in thread-fastened and bulkhead versions. By supporting high-speed transmissions up to 12Gbps versus traditional SDI connectors, the BNC75 Series can reduce the number of 3Gbps or 6Gbps SDI connectors required in a design. This not only enables a drastic reduction in the size of a device, but also significantly decreases mating time and component costs.

The BNC75 Series helps reduce the size of broadcasting cameras, FA/commercial cameras, security cameras, medical equipment, and more.

The BNC75 Series meets the 12G-SDI connector standard, offering high frequency performance that exceeds requirements up to the third harmonics (18GHz). The RF connector has a taper-shape single terminal design that generates high impedance matching performance at 75ohms. The single terminal design minimizes signal reflection and improves frequency characteristics versus through hole technologies.

“The new BNC75 Series supports image data transmission equivalent to 12Gbps through a single line specified in the 12G-SDI standard. A unique terminal design offers higher frequency performance by eliminating impedance disruptions often found in existing technologies,” said Rick van Weezel, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Hirose Electric USA.

The ROHS certified connector has an operating temperature of -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C.
