Solutions for CO2 Emission Reduction
The automobile industry is working hard to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by focusing on vehicle weight, fuel consumption and improved electrical efficiency.
Vehicle manufacturers are redoubling their efforts in lightweight construction to further reduce fuel consumption. Increased requirements to application areas such as body, drive systems, chassis and on-board electrical systems due to higher temperatures and vibrational loads demand improved and innovative terminal and connector systems. TE provides solutions that help to meet the challenges of the evolving 48 Volt E/E architecture, downsized engines, miniaturization of electrical systems and the substitution of copper to aluminum wire. Leading products include:
Power Relay F7 A Latching
Relays consume up to 10% of a vehicle’s electric power, the power relay F7 A latching offers considerable energy saving potential within the vehicle. The relay is a bi-stable single-coil version with a permanent magnet used in power outlets, start-stop and energy management applications.
