ERICH JAEGER develops data connectors


Feb 4, 2019




In the not-so-far future, trailers will face a few new challenges: They will be equipped with cameras and sensors which will transmit signals to the driver conveying information on the vehicle’s environment and condition. Of course, this requires connections and plugs between towing vehicle and trailer which are able to cope with digital data. ERICH JAEGER – the expert for trailer connectors – is already working on developing solutions for this future.

The High-Speed Interface data connector

To this end, the company presents a design study for a data connector: Based on the proven 15-pin system according to ISO 12098 for commercial vehicles, the ERICH JAEGER designers developed a connector system for the quick transmission of digital signals. It features two shielded 2-pin data lines with a transmission rate of 1 Gbit/s. These data lines are surrounded by 12 power pins for cables with a diameter of 1.5 and 2.5 mm², which can supply power to consumers in the trailer.

New connectors based on a proven system

As the development of the data connector system is based on the proven 15-pin system by ERICH JAEGER, it also features the respective advantages: The extremely tough socket housing is easy to install and watertight according to IPX9K both plugged in and out.

Features of the HSI data connector:

  • Two shielded 2-pin data lines
  • Transmission rate of 1 Gbit/s
  • 12 power pins up to 20 Amp
  • Watertight both plugged in and out
  • Easy installation
  • Robust socket housing
