Delphi Harsh Environment Series (HES) Terminals

The Delphi Harsh Environment Series (HES) terminals are designed for application in all industry standard terminal cavity sizes and for performance in harsh environments which include commercial vehicles, construction, agriculture equipment and other specialty vehicles. They are available in three sizes:

  • 1.0 mm (size 20)
  • 1.6 mm (size 16)
  • 2.4 mm (size 12)

Because HES terminals provide excellent performance and value, they are an optimal choice when selecting a standard cavity terminal. The HES terminals provide numerous advantages compared to industry standard terminals.

Benefits

  • Contact (terminal) performance
    • Higher current ratings compared to existing systems
    • Stainless steel sleeve provides stability and protection to contact interface area
    • Overlapping wing design provides exceptional strain relief and larger outside diameter cable range capability
    • Tin in crimp area results in superior crimp stability over life
    • Crimps designed to accommodate a wide range of cable sizes
  • Terminal design improves insertion force
  • Validated to SAE J2030 and various other customer specifications

Typical Applications

Delphi Harsh Environment Series terminals are designed for use in the following industries:

  • Agriculture
  • Commercial vehicle
  • Construction
  • Marine
  • Other harsh environment applications

They are well suited for use in harsh environment pass-through applications where space is limited. They can be tailored to meet individual customer specifications.
