Custom Power Connector Development
Methode’s engineering team can design and prototype application specific connector housings and interconnection capabilities.
Methode was asked to design a connector for charging a robot battery that integrates power and signal contacts, with low mating force that can be blind-mated without human intervention. The connector is also designed to survive over 3,000 charge cycles and still maintain connection integrity.
Methode was tasked with designing an 800VAC, blind-mate panel-mount connector that included thirteen contacts, each rated for 150A.
Methode was approached to create a solution that would replace a customer’s existing expensive power connector that was overheating.
