Huber+Suhner has revealed its Radox EV-C Multi-Core cable system which has been especially engineered for usage with auxiliary devices within EVs. Created with the growing trend of electrification in mind, the new cable system is the latest addition to the RADOX EV-C family, extending the company's EV offering beyond the standard high voltage power supply.
The cable system is intended to connect auxiliaries such as electric air conditioning, e-power steering, e-compressors, cabin heaters and e-turbos, that have been incorporated into the vehicle architecture.
To optimise cost and time efficiency, the system employs the same thread interface as the Radox EV-C Single-Core. This removes the necessity for special interface preparations. Instead, designers can adjust one type of interface for use with both single and multi-core connections.
“Huber+Suhner is already well-established for developing high voltage solutions for EVs. But we were keen to push our innovation further to provide a solution that connects other high voltage systems on-board,” said Robert Weirauch, Product Manager of Connection Systems, Low-Frequency Division at Huber+Suhner. “By utilising the same design principle as the Single-Core cable system we have further simplified high voltage connections, delivering a system that allows for effortless integration in the vehicle.”
“Our Radox EV-C Multi-Core cable system comes with a simple to use gland socket, helping to reduce assembly time significantly,” added Weirauch. “It is also compatible with other Huber+Suhner EV products such as RADOX cables and modular high voltage distribution unit (mHVDU), offering the ultimate one-stop shop and a complete high voltage connection system.”
