The newly re-launched HBB series of single pole high power 300A and 500A circular connectors from Smiths Interconnect offer a compact, lightweight and ruggedized heavy duty connector designed for use in all types of harsh environment applications, including electric motor drives, military ground vehicle turret systems, rail transport and industrial applications.  Now assembled by Aerco, they are available with low MOQs and short lead-times.

It is compliant for heavy-duty circular electrical connectors for harsh environments, the connectors feature the best electrical performance and high levels of shock and vibration immunity due to the use of Smiths Interconnect’s hyperboloid contact technology. The ultra-low resistance and smooth and light wiping action of the hyperboloid contacts results in low fretting fatigue/corrosion and long contact life with minimal degradation in performance. The hyperboloid contact design ensures this high degree of immunity to shock and vibration, guaranteeing electrical continuity in all circumstances. Contact resistance figures as low as 0.03mΩ keeps resistive losses and generated heat at a minimal, facilitating maximum transmission performance.

Target markets include military and commercial aerospace, including UAVs, military and commercial ground vehicles, industrial and oil & gas. Applications include electric motor drives, turret systems, military communications, mobile weapon, radar, battery and intelligent power management systems.
