JAE has a long history of supplying high-quality connectors to the traditional automotive industry, while at the same time serving the growing electric vehicle market.
Demand for electric vehicles is growing rapidly around the world, not only due to tightening international environmental regulations, but also driven by consumer demand for better performance and greater driving range. People now want to drive electric cars and are willing to pay more for it.
A large number of battery cells are installed in new EV models, and the connector will distribute power to the battery, as well as monitor and manage the power supply unit. Another incremental market is basic charging facilities. Various international charging standards mean that there is a large demand for EV charging guns from car to grid and car to home.
From charging ports to battery junction boxes to electric motors, JAE connectors are used in all critical areas of EVs. Inside the car, JAE offers high specification compact connectors.
For EV charging, JAE has been developing connectors for home and public charging stations for many years in all major international regions. The battery cells installed in EVs and PHEVs are composed of many electronic devices, including battery modules and battery management systems (BMS) that detect battery status at all times. JAE has developed a wide range of automotive connectors that can be used to connect components in each module.
For connectors on battery modules, multiple key options are required to prevent mis-mating during installation. There is also a requirement for a low back height due to limited interior space. AE has developed a variety of automotive connectors that meet these requirements. EV technology is still in the early stages of development.
Future market growth requires a fresh mindset from all players to drive innovation and make e-Mobility more attractive to enter the mass growth phase. The miniaturization of all components, including connectors, will be very important, which means reducing the number of cables in electric vehicles, while simplifying maintenance of vehicle systems. The electric vehicle industry has a very fast growth curve and is an extremely dynamic and innovative industry. JAE will continue to be a core supplier.
