Connectors on the Move

Key factors to be taken into account when designing automotive connectors.

phase of the connector, it is essential to validate a sealing solution with accelerated aging tests, mainly based on stringent automotive standards (including EN 60529, an international ingress protection rating standard).

Depending on the application, assembled or directly overmolded gaskets can also be integrated to ensure a seal with the counterpart. In the design Connectors fitted with pressfit terminals made by Axon’ Mechatronics are designed to be inserted directly into a PCB with no soldering.

Watertight connector sealed with a gasket. Axon’ Mechatronics’ connectors are rated to IP68 or IP69, depending on customers’ requirements. They are designed, for example, for engine sensors, stop and start systems or AdBlue systems.
