Electric Vehicles

For cutting edge technology, either for speed, for future transportation, or both, then you need to specify products that deliver quality performance now. Demand a lightweight and reliable connector that performs under severe conditions of vibration & shock, high temperature and humidity.

Lightweight & Reliable Connectors

Specify Harwin for modern motorsport & EV applications requiring minimum added weight and maximum reliability, even under the stress of severe vibration, shock, heat and humidity.

  • Many years experience supplying the Motorsport & EV industry
  • Lightweight & reliable interconnects with small PCB footprints
  • Certified to EN9100D / AS9100D

Featured Projects

  • Project: Sockets for Insulated Metal Substrate (IMS) PCBs on EV Power Module.
  • Challenge: IMS PCB boards, commonly used for heat dissipation, need to be kept electrically isolated, so standard through board sockets are unsuitable. A standoff socket on top was required for easy assembly in consideration of Design For Manufacture (DFM).
  • Solution: Bottom entry Sycamore Contact assembled in an inverted orientation for an SMT PCB Socket with the solder connections kept away from the lower layers of the assembly. The final assembly is easy to mate with the opposing PCB and terminal pins, making it fast and simple to produce and replace.
  • Project: EV Charging Station for public parking bays
  • Challenge: Rugged design required for long term environmental exposure such as heat, cold and humidity with easy maintenance and board spacing being important factors.
  • Solution: Archer Kontrol delivered the right level of performance and quality, capable of long-term consistent durability and cost-effective specifications – and at the right mated height.
