Similarly to the automotive market, the transportation market is advancing in the areas of safety, connectivity, and efficiency. However, despite many similarities, it has higher performance requirements and must abide by more stringent government regulations on emission reduction.
First, commercial and recreation vehicles are often exposed to higher levels of environmental forces, including vibration, dust, water, debris, and temperatures. Second, to address the evolving emission regulations, powertrain components are designed to be more efficient, in turn driving complexity in the electrical system and requiring higher component reliability. These two factors drive the demand for more robust connection systems designed specifically with the market’s unique conditions in mind.
