Hermetically sealed and intrinsically safe, TE Connectivity AMP+ high voltage contactors provide fast and reliable switching of the high voltage battery to the vehicle system in hybrid and electric vehicles. The AMP+ high voltage contactor 500-500L offers 900 VDC and 500 Amps continuous current carrying capabilities in a compact package. Capable of 2000 Amp interrupt at 320 VDC.
Evolved from fighter jet technology, AMP+ high voltage contactors reliably provide current switching capability in harsh and explosive operating environments with no oxidation or contamination of contacts during long periods of non-operation. 12kV of isolation between open contacts increase battery system robustness. The AMP+ EVC 500 is designed with an optional built micro-controller or timer based coil economizer; the AMP+ EVC 500L is designed with a 12V coil requiring no external economizer. Both are available with an optional auxiliary switch to monitor contact position.
