TE Connectivity (TE) announces the launch of its DEUTSCH Autosport Heavy Duty (ASHD) 3-Way Connector. The new connector was designed for the growing hybrid market in motorsports, in which racecars use three-phase motor/generator systems.
To ease application in three-phase motor/generator systems, the ASHD 3-way connector fills the gap between existing ASHD 2- and 4-way connectors and uses the same shell. The connector has three 4 AWG power contacts with 200 A current-handling capacity and two data contacts for safety loop solutions to help allow safe handling. The new connector will also accommodate 16 mm2, 25 mm² and 35 mm² wire diameters.
