High Power Connector Design with EnerbeeFollow article
The EnerBee connector family from Hirose delivers high-power and secure locking for industrial power sources. Named after the tiny, yet energetic insect, the EnerBee name represents the shared concept of this product family - compact size with high-end performance. In addition to its high-current capability and superior performance, the EnerBee family of connectors delivers robust solutions for the most demanding applications in industrial power supply and power sources.
The compact design of the Enerbee family maximises PCB space and gives greater design flexibility. Secure locking is guaranteed by the robust positive locks that give a clear tactile click when mated. This confirms the connector is fully engaged guaranteeing complete electrical and mechanical connection. The centre locks prevent uneven locking and cable entanglement which is common with side locks. Safe connection is ensured by the polarization keys that prevent incorrect insertion of the mating half connector.
The DF60 and DF22 series both feature a multi-point contact. These unique contacts with independent springs to allow movement to ensure superior vibration resistance and contact points to guarantee a secure connection.
In addition, the DF33C, and DF22 series can be potted. This is a process to protect mounted components from moisture, dust and dirt. The lower part of the connector housing is sealed to prevent potting material wicking into the connector body.
The Enerbee is a comprehensive range of connectors suitable for applications including robots, industrial controllers, automotive devices, medical, servers, servo amplifiers, smart meters, gaming equipment, motors, IoT (Internet of Things) devices and many others.
