TE Connectivity introduces 48 Volt connector portfolio for automotive manufacturers.

End-to-end connector portfolio addresses the need for pre-qualified connectors that meet the requirements of new 48 Volt electrical systems.


BENSHEIM, Germany – August 18, 2020  – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, introduced its new  end-to-end portfolio of connectors pre-qualified for the specific application requirements of new 48 Volt vehicle electrical systems. The portfolio consolidates TE’s proven and reliable connectors into a single catalog, making it easier for customers to find and purchase the parts they need.


In order to address increasing electrical power demands as well as meet stricter CO2 emissions regulations, many vehicle manufacturers have announced intentions to develop vehicles based on two voltage (12V / 48V) electrical systems. TE’s portfolio has been designed to address the specific connector requirements of these new systems, including the ability to accommodate the wire sizes nec­essary for the main powertrain and high-power side aggregates, while offering a pin-pitch that provides the necessary clearance and creepage distance in accordance with DIN 60664-1. In addition, all of TE’s connector systems are sealed and have locking safeguards to prevent accidental un-mating while meeting automotive specifications for robustness.


“We believe our customers will find this portfolio of 48V connectors highly valuable when searching for connector components that meet their 48V application requirements,” said Boris Ketscher, product manager at TE. “Our portfolio of sealed 48V ready terminals and connectors covers all the standard 48V current ranges, including bolt-down integrated power terminals, supporting wire sizes up to 120mm2, large crimp-termination sealed connectors, as well as smaller highly robust connectors, supporting the 48V system side aggregates.”
