Connector and Cable Assembly Supplier

Automotive

The trend in the automotive industry is clear: Vehicle electronics content is increasing rapidly, resulting in a need for robust, reliable, standardized, and affordable interconnects. Intelligent bus systems are replacing simple cable connections; intelligent distribution boxes are replacing simple ignitions. ABS systems, airbags, and satellite navigation are becoming standard equipment. Integrated information systems, computerized motor control management, and optoelectronic displays, along with other active safety systems, such as forward collision avoidance, lane departure warning, and blind spot detection, enhance safety, performance, and comfort. Refined diagnostic instruments and radio-telemetrics will enable mechanics to diagnose, and possibly even solve problems, without even seeing the vehicle in person. As the electronics in the family car become more and more sophisticated, the variety of connector types being designed into vehicles is growing rapidly: sealed, unsealed, RF, I/O rectangular, and high-voltage/high-current connectors all have a place in today’s automotive designs. Includes 1.0mm, 1.5mm, 2.8mm, 4.8mm, and 6.3mm, wire-to-wire latching design, bulkhead and other automotive connectors,
