Contributing weight-saving initiatives of automobiles

With thin and aluminum electric wires, it contributes to reduction of weight of automobile harness.aluminum_advantages

9715 Series are wire branching connectors that are compatible with aluminum electric wires which have attracted attention by weight reduction of automobiles s as well as copper electric wires commonly used in automobile harnesses.Aluminum electric wires and copper electric wires have different conductivities, so it is necessary to use wires of one size up to pass the same electric current through the aluminum one. (e.g. In order to pass the same electric current through an aluminum electric wire as the one through 0.5 sq copper electric wire, 0.75 sq of aluminum wire should be used.) The aluminum wire of one size up weighs only 60%* of the copper wire, which contributes to weight saving of automobiles.
*The weights vary depending on the size of wire coating.
