HUBER+SUHNER will demonstrate its cable and system portfolio for electric vehicles at IZB 2018, in Wolfsburg.
Swiss-based HUBER+SUHNER’s key highlight is the RADOX® High Power Charging (HPC) system. The technology allows the increase of the power-throughput of a charging cable to 500 kW and grants fast and effective charging – with charging times of less than 15 minutes (80% State of Charge). It also offers a smaller cable cross section compared to the traditional high-powered cable option due to its slim, flexible, lightweight, easy-to-handle benefits.
The company will also be showcasing its extensive RADOX® cable portfolio that offers high temperature performance in harsh automotive environments, and the compact design of the wide spectrum of cables means that they have excellent resistance to aggressive fluids, heat and abrasion.
Other solutions on display include the RADOX® anticapillary cable. Inside the conductor of the cable, a grease-like filling material prevents the capillary effect in the core, stopping liquids in the vehicle, such as oil, water or AdBlue, from being conveyed through the cable and damaging the electronics and sensors at the other end.
HUBER+SUHNER will also exhibit its high voltage distribution unit (HVDU) and the 2nd generation RADOX® automotive connection system (RACS).
“Our HVDU solutions are designed and manufactured to meet the special demands of the customer to assure an easy assembling process. They are already in use today in cars, trucks, buses and specialised vehicles, providing safe interconnections between all high-voltage components in the vehicle including motors, inverters, batteries, chargers, DC/DC converters and compressors,” said Frank Rothe, Head of Market Unit LF Automotive at HUBER+SUHNER.
By combining the HVDU with the RACS wire-to-device connection system, users can benefit from considerably smaller space requirements, with 360° electromagnetic shielding and excellent protection from the environment.
