Honda offers renewable energy accessories
Honda Connectors is announcing the introduction of a series of locking power connectors and accessories for the renewable energies industry.
The RZM series has been developed for use in photovoltaic panels in solar battery applications.
Connectors are TUV certified as standard, with UL accreditation currently being obtained.
The company said that the RZM series connectors are easy to assemble and connect.
They also incorporate additional safety features including a friction locking mechanism, and are robust enough to withstand harsh environments.
The connectors are suitable for use with 2mm2, 3.5mm2 and 4mm2 wiring.
Honda's photovoltaic panel connectors, rated at 20A, feature a simple construction, designed for durability and reliability.
The two-piece design crimp connector is IP67 rated and requires a high mating for force >89N.
Honda has also developed a range of accessories to complement its RZM photovoltaic panel connector series.
Included are hold-down fixtures, junction boxes and customer specific cable assemblies.
Honda Connectors is supplying 34mm Express card kits and host connectors.
Four ruggedised connectors from TE Connectivity designed for military, aerospace and space applications, are now available. TE’s Mezalok, MULTIGIG RT 2-R, CeeLok FAS-T and Fortis Zd series high performance interconnects provide high-speed, reliable and lightweight, robust solutions in harsh environments.
The ODU MINI-FLAKAFIX series is designed for connecting PCBs across larger distances and at any angle or changeable angles.
ODU has added the MEDI-SNAP EMC to its range of push-pull circulator connectors. The new shielded plastic connector is lightweight and cost effective, can be autoclaved and sterilised and offers reliable protection against accidental contact.
Warwick University successful launched its WUSAT-2 satellite earlier this month. The student-run project, which has now built and launched a small 10 x 10 x 10cm CubeSat satellite into space, relies on miniature connectors from Harwin to provide the vital interconnect used in experimental equipment carried by the satellite.
