Higo mini B panel mount connector enables smart cable management in e-bikes
With the growing number of electrical connections, e-bikes are surrounded with more and more cables to make it all happen. For one of our customers in the e-bike industry, this generated the need for smart cable management.
That is why Higo has developed a special panel mount connector to be used on a distribution unit with display. This distribution unit is the central location to which the controller, lighting and brakes are connected on the bottomside. On top of this unit, the display is mounted.
This effectively reduces the number of cables going from the front of the bike backwards. Also from a durability point of view, this is an interesting connector solution. When the display breaks from a fall for instance, you simply disconnect the display and replace it with a new one. With the traditional system, you most likely have to replace the display and all the different cables connected to it.
In general, this panel mount connector can be used on any type of device or accessoire that already integrates connectors or where connectors need to be integrated. The specifications of the mini-B panel mount connector are the same as the mini-B signal connector.
