A very important characteristic of the original connection terminal is its flexibility. Especially when used with battery cells arranged in mobile applications. A variety of material handling machines, electric vehicles.
Important, if used, non-genuine Connectors, for example, from a single piece of sheet metal at case of vibration and shock risk of damage to the internal connection terminals of cell.
How to calculate the maximum current for a given terminal connector?
The important parameters for the calculation are the cross-section of the terminal connector x the width of the terminal connector.
See recommended current load per 1mm2
4A/1mm2 - permanent
6A/1mm2 - short term up to 1h
8A/1mm2 - peak max 1 min
The load capacity of the terminal connector is not linear!
The load capacity decreases with increasing cross-section of the terminal connector.
