Yazaki has teamed with the SAE J1772 Working Group to define a standard connector interface for charging batteries from the utility grid on its next generation of plug-in electric vehicles. Design features for the connector include a compact size; crush-proof design; support of up to a 70 A charge rate; and safe, touch-proof contacts. The connector was designed for more than 10,000 insertion cycles. Yazaki supplies high-voltage products for many hybrid vehicles on the road domestically and in Japan and offers improved material selection, component integration, size reduction, and enhanced designs for manufacturability.
