TE Connectivity Introduces Connector Range

5 May 2017

TE Connectivity has launched a DEUTSCH autosport hermetic fuel tank connector range with aluminium shell, which reduces weight by 60 per cent.

The new connector replaces standard stainless steel materials with aluminium and goes into the wall of a fuel cell with a glass seal to stop any fuel escaping up the wiring loom.

“Complex fuel systems on today’s racing vehicles require many inputs into the fuel cell, whether it be for the lift pumps or sensors,” said Paul Webb, autosport global product manager at TE Connectivity.

He added: “The safety element of the hermetic connector means there is no margin for error, and the new method developed by TE allows the use of aluminium in this critical safety area, bringing large weight savings without compromising the seal.”
