TE Connectivity: PCON High-Power Terminals

April 27, 2020

TE Connectivity (TE) recently announced its new PCON terminals. Leveraging TE’s extensive connector terminal expertise, these high-power terminals combine high current capability with a smart and robust design for high vibration resistance.

“PCON high-power terminals are specifically designed to support the increased connectivity requirements in high-voltage interconnection systems of hybrid and all-electric vehicles,” said Gautham Kadhirvel, product manager, TE Connectivity. “Our new line of PCON terminals are highly suited to high-voltage interconnection systems for hybrid and electric vehicles powertrain and auxiliary applications.”

TE’s new line of terminals, PCON 12, PCON 18 and PCON 21, have a common body design optimized for maximum vibration resistance while minimizing mating forces. Each is available with 90° and 180° mating directions and accomodates wire sizes ranging from 5 mm2 to 95 mm2 supporting continuous currents up to 400 Amps. In addition, the PCON terminals are designed to accept touch-safe protection features integrated into the tab housing according to IEC 60529 IP2XB and UL-finger standards for EV powertrain applications therefore enabling safe and easy assembly and maintenance.
