The growing innovation of vehicle functions increases the number of signal connections in the automotive modules and harnesses. This accounts for the necessity for larger connectors and more terminal connections which leads to weight- and space problems in most vehicles, which eventually causes higher CO2 emissions. Hence, TE presents here the Automotive Miniaturization Portfolio for sealed and unsealed Applications. The focus will be on the NanoMQS and MCON 0.50 Portfolio which are the miniaturized connector systems specially developed to save space and weight, while maintaining the same robustness requirement from Automotive OEMs.
Miniature Automotive Terminals and Connectors
The number and complexity of electronically controlled vehicle functions are growing at a rapid pace which in turn, creates a need to save space. In addition, manufacturers need to ensure that components meet ultra-high levels robustness and reliability when deployed in harsh high-vibration, high-temperature automotive environments. Supporting a blade size of 0.5mm and a wire range of 0.13mm² – 0.35mm², TE Connectivity's (TE) portfolio of miniaturized automotive connector systems are designed to meet the most stringent OEM specifications such as LV214 and USCAR while enabling space saving of up to 50%.
