Connectors

Connectors provide a separable electro-mechanical interface between two subsystems, typically a device or two wire harnesses.

We offer a broad range of off-the-shelf and custom designed connectors that improve system integrity to all network devices, while supporting a full range of applications and environmental conditions. Our engineers will work with you to custom design and manufacture electrical components and parts to fit your needs.

Yazaki understands the evolving market requirements and employs consulting and engineering services for our customers in electrical power and data distribution.  We offer leading design and manufacturing techniques along with advanced materials to deliver connection systems that are optimized for weight, size, cost and performance. Our connectors provide enhanced reliability, built-in scalability, simplified assembly, and reduced development cycles at a competitive price.

High-Speed Connectors

Yazaki’s high-speed connectors are developed to meet the increasing demands of consumers and their desire for richer in-vehicle multimedia experiences. Our products expand connectivity, enable faster information access and improve occupant safety, and are continually evolving to meet a variety of data requirements, including:

  • Increased information transfer capacity
  • Increased number of interacting nodes
  • Node location in any vehicle area
  • Faster data transmission rates


Our options span a full spectrum of frequencies, and are engineered with the insight we’ve gained by designing complete and integrated high-frequency networks.

A leader in high voltage connection system development since 1990, Yazaki draws on extensive experience in wire harnesses, connectors and battery posts/terminals. Yazaki has developed components for high voltage applications, electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV), working with customers that include Toyota, DaimlerChrysler, Honda, GM, Ford and Nissan.

Yazaki meets customer needs with technologies that include EMI shielded connection systems; "last-mate/first-break" safety features (assures system is not "live" until connection is made), high voltage/low current systems (utilize standard terminal system), and conductive and inductive charging systems.
 
Today, every hybrid electric vehicle on the road contains at least one Yazaki high-voltage product. Click here to learn more about Yazaki's hybrid and electric vehicle products.
