APD one-way connectors

ITT Interconnect Solutions grows its line of APD circular connectors with the new APD one-way finger-protective device. The connector ensures user safety and offers IP69K sealing to withstand elements in harsh environments, making it suitable for use in the transportation and automotive industries.

"As the need to move away from fossil fuels to alternative energy sources grows, there is an increased focus on hybrid and electrical vehicles (HEVs). Safe connectors suitable for use in high voltage and maximum power applications are required, and the APD one-way connector effectively meets those needs," said Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions.

The APD one-way finger protective connector is easy to use and features a plastic cap that protects the user's fingers. The connector receptacles mate with standard APD one-way plugs and incorporate ITT ICS' proven APD contact, crimp and coupling nut system. Pin contacts are available with standard crimp and additional screw or bolt terminations. The connectors suit cable cross-sections from 16mm? to 50mm?.

Voltage rating for the APD one-way connectors is to 400Vdc in mated condition, and the connectors are capable of handling voltages to 630Vdc based on normative regulations (the connector must not be mated or unmated under load). Current rating is to 245A at 25C.
