HUBER+SUHNER has today announced the commercial launch of the RADOX® EV-C connectivity solution to provide the automotive industry with a superior solution, strengthening its footprint in the growing global e-mobility market.
HUBER+SUHNER developed the innovative cable gland to provide hybrid and electric vehicles – particularly trucks, buses, construction and special vehicles – with a safe and reliable connection that is suitable for the most demanding applications, including high temperatures, current peaks, extreme mechanical loads and harsh environments.
“Previously, vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers often had to source cables, connectors and high voltage distribution units separately from different suppliers and then assemble them together. HUBER+SUHNER is revolutionising this process by offering the end-to-end interconnected system including high voltage cables, the High Voltage Distribution Unit (HVDU) and the latest innovation, RADOX® EV-C,” said Robert Weirauch, Product Manager at HUBER+SUHNER.
“The RADOX® EV-C is proven to operate under severe conditions and provides a consistent level of performance over the life span of the vehicle,” continued Weirauch. “As with all of our high voltage products, we have created these with our customers’ priorities in mind.”
The solution utilises proven RADOX® technology from HUBER+SUHNER, which uses electron beam crosslinking process for the cables. This achieves notable improvements in the thermal, mechanical and chemical properties of the cable insulation. Merging this cable technology with the new EV-C gland will provide the best-in-class connectivity solution for demanding heavy duty applications.
“The HUBER+SUHNER RADOX® EV-C has been validated both internally and externally according to automotive high voltage standards. It is offered in seven sizes ranging from 16 to 120 mm² in five main variants, providing wide configuration flexibility for our customers and their specific needs,” concluded Weirauch.
