HVIL (High Voltage Interlock) is a safety feature that uses a low voltage circuit to monitor the integrity of the high voltage circuit, designed to protect those who may come into contact with the high voltage system of an electric vehicle.
The main electrical components in the electric vehicle (EV) high voltage interlock system are the HVIL connector and the MSD (Manual Service Disconnect) connector.
Metabee HVIL connectors family features a wide temperature and wire range and multiple keying options for many electric vehicle applications. Assembly is simplified with a lever assist for low insertion force.
Metabee HVIL connectors provide a robust design that optimizes package size and plug and header selections to create multiple wire harness assembly routing options. The touch-proof HVIL connectors and headers are engineered with 90-degree and 180-degree plugs and feature an integrated internal HVIL function and EMI shielding.
