    Understanding High Voltage Connectors: Usage and Safety Considerations

    Some test equipment requires a boosted commercial 100VAC to generate high voltages. In electric vehicles, the voltage of the inverter and battery circuits rises as the motor voltage rises. Familiar high-voltage equipment includes X-ray machines (diagnostic X-ray imaging equipment). The X-ray tubes used in medical X-ray machines and analyzers are vacuum tubes that must be replaced after a certain amount of time in operation. the X-ray tubes and the high voltage power supply are connected via high voltage connectors to ensure easy interchangeability. For this reason, high voltage connectors are commonly used to connect high voltage devices used in medical, scientific and analytical equipment to improve their ease of use and reduce maintenance.

    This article will describe the types of high-voltage connectors that are safe and reliable for use in high-voltage circuits and precautions for their use.

  2. High Voltage Connector- Insulation Resistance Test

    HV Connector Harness

    Whether it is a high-voltage electrical connectors, or low-voltage electrical connectors, insulation resistance, dielectric strength (also known as electrical strength) and contact resistance are to ensure that the electrical connectors can work properly and reliably the most basic electrical parameters. Usually in the technical conditions of the electrical connector product quality consistency inspection A, B group of conventional delivery inspection projects are listed in the clear technical specifications and test methods. These three tests are also an important basis for users to identify the quality and reliability of electrical connectors. 

    In addition, with the rapid development of electronic information technology, a new generation of multi-functional automatic testers are gradually replacing the original single-parameter tester. The application

    Principle of High Voltage Interlock Loop and Troubleshooting

    There is no doubt that new energy vehicles are one of the popular development directions in the passenger car field at present. New energy vehicles are significantly different from traditional fuel vehicles. In particular, pure electric vehicles will not be able to perceive their working condition and judge the safety status of the vehicle through obvious shaking, smell, heat and other ways like fuel vehicles. Therefore, other approaches are needed to ensure the safety and reliability of the vehicle during operation. High-voltage insulation detection and high-voltage interlock loop are essential technical solutions.

    At the same time, in order to ensure that the high-voltage

    HVIL System in Electric Vehicles

    In the high-voltage circuit of an electric vehicle, the main electrical component of the hvil system is the high-voltage connector. However, the manual maintenance switch (MSD) is a human-operated element that serves as the electrical interface for circuit turn-on/break-off.

    On the one hand, it initiates the protective measure of safely disconnecting the high-voltage electricity when the circuit of the high-voltage system is disconnected, or its integrity is damaged. On the other hand, it is used to confirm the integrity of the entire high-voltage system.
