Hirose develops low-profile waterproof wire-to-wire connector

Hirose has developed a low-profile waterproof wire-to-wire connector for demanding automotive, agricultural and construction vehicles.

Rated to IP67 / IP69K, the 2.2mm pitch ZE064W Series is resistant to temperatures up to 125°C.

A double-layer spring, three-point contact design ensures highly reliable connectivity in high vibration and shock conditions, which are commonly found in off-highway and transportation applications. A contact retainer prevents incomplete mating and offers a pull force strength of 50N. Mating keys prevent mis-mating when using multiple connectors.

The ZE064W Series connector provides heat resistance performance up to 125°C producing stable contact resistance for up to 3000 cycles, satisfying engine compartment heat resistance requirements.

Rated to 5A @250 VAC, the connector is designed for a wide range of automotive applications including automotive converter, inverter, battery, on-board charger, ECU and more. In addition to vehicle applications, the ZE064W Series is popular in industrial equipment.

The ZE064W Series operates in the environments from -40°C up to 125°C, has a rated voltage of 250V AC.
