As the market leader and innovator of top-performing motorsport products, TE Connectivity (TE) has a long history of engineering innovative solutions that reliably perform on the track, one of the world’s harshest environments for technology.
Its experts work closely with their customers to develop custom solutions that help meet the performance challenges which race teams face every weekend on the track – regardless of whether the track is made of asphalt or gravel.
TE’s DEUTSCH Autosport and Raychem product families offer high-performance connectors, wire, heat shrink moulded parts, and boots that are designed to set the global standard for motorsport interconnect solutions and help give top teams the edge to excel.
TE’s DEUTSCH AS Hermetic Series connectors are designed to provide leak-free connections in the harshest environments. The Hermetic ranges include AS Micro Hermetic series, AS Micro Hermetic jam-nut series, the AS Hermetic fuel tank series, and the Aluminum Hermetic Fuel Tank series. These connectors are intended for use in autosport applications where sealing integrity is required, including fuel and pressurized systems.
Designed for very high-risk applications like fuel and pressure systems, TE recently released its DEUTSCH autosport hermetic fuel tank connector range which replaces standard stainless steel materials with aluminum to achieve a 60 per cent weight savings. Designed for the professional motorsport industry, the fuel tank connector goes into the wall of a fuel cell with a glass seal to stop any fuel escaping up the wiring loom.
