Eaton provides stamped battery terminals for ICEs and electrics

Sept. 7, 2023
Eaton claims stamped battery terminals perform better than diecast or forged terminals and save weight depending upon the application.

Intelligent power management company Eaton has announced its Power Connections business is now offering stamped battery terminals for both electrified and internal combustion passenger vehicles and on- and off-highway commercial vehicles. In a press release, Eaton said its stamped battery terminals offer several benefits, including greater energy cycling performance compared to diecast or forged terminals and weight savings that vary depending by application.

“Each of our battery terminals surpass industry standards and can be uniquely customized to customer specifications,” said John Romain, product management director, Power Connections, Eaton’s Mobility Group. “Our Power Connections technologies leverage decades of experience designing innovative electrical components for the mobility industry.”

The stamped battery terminals are customizable and compatible with SAE, DIN, IEC, and JIS battery post configurations. Additionally, Eaton’s tools are designed to be flexible enough to adapt to the changing needs of customer routing requirements.

“We also employ finite element analysis, which predicts real-world physical behavior by testing CAM models, to ensure our products meet the quality standards our customers expect,” Romain explained. “Our stamped battery terminals are also ideally suited for commercial vehicle applications that use large gauge cables because it takes more force to pull the terminal free from its post than traditional diecast or forged terminals.”
