HV-Batteriemodule einfach und sicher miteinander verbinden
High voltage: Simple. Modular. Safe.

Plan HV storage modules simply and flexibly – and install them quickly, safely and securely.

There are special requirements on safety for HV applications. Flexibility in terms of space utilisation is often neglected in the development process of electric vehicles. In production lines, also, the ease of installation when connecting storage modules has been largely neglected until now.

Ideal space utilisation

This is different for the KOSTAL HV battery module connectors. Two connection versions have been developed:

  1. The first version covers a grid dimension of 35 to 120 mm and enables double plugging in one plugging procedure.
  2. Alternatively, with a cable version using the new PLK 14.5 x 1.8 mm in a single-pole receptacle housing a grid dimension of over 120 mm can be conveniently and securely bridged – and all this with a nominal current up to 250 A. With only low cooling capacity, the nominal current can still be doubled. With this KOSTAL provides a standardised interface for all requirements.

Easy assembly

To this end, the KOSTAL battery module connectors for HV applications are extremely easy to install:

  • Without assembly tools
  • Without removal tools
  • Increased tolerance compensation in comparison with screw connection

Safety first – IPxxB contact protection

HV batteries store enormous amounts of energy and because an HV battery the interior is never voltage-free. With the patented KOSTAL contact protection system inadvertent contact with the current-carrying components is avoided. A lethal electric shock during assembly and maintenance work is therefore ruled out.

Depending on requirements, the module connectors can be aligned horizontally or vertically. This results in the greatest possible flexibility when designing the package layout.
