TE Connectivity’s Micro Motor Connectors for Servo Motors Answer Calls for More Compact, Cost-Effective and Reliable Solutions
DARMSTADT, Germany – July 12, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, helps servo motor manufacturers keep up with motor connectivity trends by offering a wide range of connectors and associated components for different types of electric motors. TE’s product line spans proven, standard connectors and customized cable assemblies, through to the latest sensor and magnet wire innovations.
“Major trends in motor connectivity focus on miniaturization, reduction of installation times, cuts in costs of both installation and operation, and improvements in reliability,” says Wenbo Zhou, product manager for motor connectivity in EMEA for TE. “Our engineers continually find ways to address and even stay ahead of these trends, and one example of this is our micro motor connectors for small size servo motors.”
The company’s latest micro motor connectors include two small and robust rectangular plastic connector solutions for compact motors that can reduce motor assembly time by 30 percent, as well as a nine-position encoder connector and a 4+2 power and brake connector, especially suitable for harsh industrial environments.
“Combining power and brake into one connector enables a smaller footprint in conjunction with a higher degree of protection (IP67) and enhanced vibration and shock resistance,” said Zhou. “The combined power and brake connectors are more compact than existing dedicated power or brake solutions. Plus, the flexibility offered by the encoder connectors and power and brake connectors facilitate convenient and easy motor installations in the field.”
TE’s micro motor connectors are compatible with commercially available cable, have a high temperature rating for power and brake – 125 degrees Celsius – as well as a high voltage rating of 380 V, and they are certified to TUV and UL standards. TE’s recent acquisition of the Intercontec group and global presence increase its ability to provide integrated connectivity solutions for motor makers around the world.
