ev high voltage cable connectors

Properly terminating HV cables and wires is an integral part of EV system safety. As an additional service, Ampere EV’s technicians will cut, terminate and isolation test all HV cables and wiring for our customers.

  • Cables Cut & Terminated to Specified Lengths
  • Isolation Tested for Safety & System Integrity

Termination of the low voltage wiring harness is extremely time consuming and there are numerous potential points of failure. Ampere EV eliminates the need for builders to endure this process and have a wiring specialist on staff. We can deliver a custom-length, fully-terminated, and tested wire harness for your low-volume OEM, series production, fleet or classic car/hot rod conversion that is built to your specifications. This service provides time savings and confidence that when each connector is plugged in, your low voltage electrical system will perform flawlessly.

  • Wires Cut & Terminated to Specified Lengths
  • Connections Tested for Plug-&-Play Simplicity

While not every fleet or classic/hot rod conversion may require cabin heat, Ampere EV is aware that most builds will require this creature comfort. This is why we offer a Cabin Water heater as an optional feature. Its operation is built into the VCU and controlled via the GUI or a CAN-enabled interface. The kit includes a 400V water heater, water pump and water reservoir, and is controlled by the VCU through the touchscreen or converted analog switches.

  • Replaces Engine Heat Source
  • Integrated into Atom Drive System VCU & Junction Box
  • Touchscreen Controls

Another comfort feature that may not always be required in some builds, AC is nevertheless expected in series production builds, fleet vehicles operating in hot climates, and in high-end classic car conversions. Our 400V AC compressor integrates seamlessly with our Atom Drive EV Conversion System and is controlled by the VCU through the touchscreen or converted analog switches.
