A New Connector for 42V Automotive Electrical System 2001-01-0724
14V/42V dual voltage system is being introduced. Wiring harness is one of the important components in the 42V system, but it has a lot of subjects to be solved. Among these subjects, we focused on arc discharge phenomenon which occurs while unmating connectors. This paper describes the influence of the arc discharge on connector terminals, and the very promising solution, which is a new type of connector for 42V automotive electrical system.
