Sensata Technologies announced new custom-designed high-voltage junction box solutions for charging commercial electric vehicles.

The product was driven by the need for fast charging and electric vehicle manufacturers requiring systems that can handle higher charging power levels, according to the Swindon, U.K.-based company, with six U.S. offices.

“Sensata’s unique capability to design all the safety critical components of the solution — like contactors, fuses, control boards and software — in-house was instrumental in securing new strategic agreements with industry leaders for our custom power management and protection solutions, which help simplify our customers’ production processes,” Brian Wilkie, vice president of Heavy Vehicle & Off-Road at Sensata Technologies, said in a release.

The company did not identify which electric truck manufacturers it reached supply agreements with. — Transport Topics
