Customer case

  • A manufacturer of track mowers was looking for a high power connector to charge the lithium-ion battery.
  • High current carrying capacity and minimal contact heating were important requirements in order to optimize the current flow and increase the lifespan of the battery.
  • The company wanted a connector, which is compact in size but has durable, robust housing components, which reliably withstand rough everyday use.

The customer relies on the Schaltbau LV80/120 connector because it has:

  • High-quality, solid power contacts for a permanently high
    current carrying capacity
  • Integrated locking against shock and vibration, strain relief and
    contact locking
  • Up to 4 signal contacts for monitoring the charging process
    via CAN / Bus communication
  • Mechanical durability > 5,000 cycles for multishift operations
    and daily charging
  • Flammability and fire protection
  • Temperature resistance from –30 °C up to +130 °C.
