More Voltage and Power is the Answer
At Amphenol Aerospace, we have an extensive history of providing high-voltage and high-power solutions. Our legacy dates back to the Second World War when our Sidney plant produced the Scintilla Magnetos that powered advanced radial aircraft engines with high-voltage electrical energy.
Nowadays, we continue to focus on providing interconnect solutions, but with different products and applications, such as our High Power 38999 and High Voltage 38999 connectors, HVDC, custom busbars, and more. We remain dedicated to developing connectivity solutions for electric powertrains that propel evolving technologies like electric and hybrid-electric military vehicles and all-electric urban air mobility aircraft. The electrification of everything is underway, and power and voltage requirements are only going to continue to grow as this technology matures.
As electrified technology continues to scale at a rapid pace, it’s crucial that today’s interconnect solutions are up to the task. At Amphenol Aerospace, we’ve determined more voltage and power is required to support next-generation power requirements.
Imagining an Electrified World
The International Energy Agency (IEA) anticipates renewable energy to account for approximately 80 percent of global electricity demand in the coming decade. As renewable energy sources continue to grow and the world shifts toward electrification, military and aerospace technology is no exception. Governments, militaries, and corporations view this technology as a beneficial way to reverse the effects of climate change, as well as a force multiplier and a catalyst for strong economic growth. The market for electric aircraft and electric military vehicles is projected to grow substantially, with estimates reaching approximately $30 billion and $17 billion respectively by 2030, as new innovative technologies such as hybrid-electric tactical vehicles and electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft take to the roads and skies.
Meanwhile, consumer electric vehicles have begun to take off. Just about 17,000 EVs were on the road globally in 2010. By 2021, there were more than 16 million.
It's important that interconnect components keep up with the swift pace of electrified innovations. At Amphenol Aerospace, we believe that more voltage and power is critical to meeting the voltage and power requirements of this evolving technology. Our connectors can reliably and safely facilitate high currents and high voltages, and we're committed to delivering powerful and reliable interconnectivity solutions for electric applications as we move into the transformative decades ahead.
Power Connectors for Next-Gen Electric Applications
Upcoming electric technologies throughout the military, aerospace, and commercial industries are going to revolutionize defense, passenger vehicles, and air travel in the coming decades. Amphenol Aerospace’s high-power and high-voltage connectors and contacts are designed to meet power requirements for even the most power-intensive electric platforms.
Electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) Aircraft
eVTOL technology is slated to revolutionize urban air mobility. These nimble, all-electric aircraft are poised to remake transportation in urban areas while delivering lower emissions and faster arrival times. They are also power-hungry platforms. Our high-voltage and high-power connectors and contacts are uniquely positioned to meet these extensive power requirements.
Electric and hybrid-electric military vehicles
It’s not just consumer vehicles going electric; the military is pursuing electrification on a mass scale too. Several promising programs are in the works, such as the electric Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (eJLTV) and Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV), as militaries around the world begin to position themselves for an electric future. At Amphenol Aerospace, we embrace this future with a suite of products ready to meet next-generation military vehicle power standards.
Just like internal combustion engines need to be refueled, electric powertrains need to be recharged. And as more vehicles and infrastructure become electrified, megawatt charging stations will play a crucial role in providing high-speed charging for the large-capacity batteries that power electric systems. Amphenol Aerospace's high voltage and high-power connectors can be relied on to facilitate the extensive power transfers and thousands of volts of direct current needed to operate the latest charging technologies.
