HUBER+SUHNER, a leading supplier of high voltage connectivity solutions for electric vehicles (EVs), has today unveiled its RADOX EV-C Multi-Core cable system which has been specifically engineered for use with auxiliary devices within Electric Vehicles (EVs). Designed with the growing trend of electrification in mind, the new EV-C Multi-Core cable system is the latest addition to the RADOX EV-C family, extending the HUBER+SUHNER EV offering beyond standard high voltage power supply.
EV manufacturers need solutions which power not only the vehicle drivetrain, but also electric systems on board. The RADOX EV-C Multi-Core cable system is designed to connect auxiliaries such as electric air conditioning, e-compressors, e-power steering, cabin heaters and e-turbos, that have been integrated into the vehicle architecture.
To optimise cost and time efficiency, the RADOX EV-C Multi-Core uses the same thread interface as the RADOX EV-C Single-Core. This eliminates the need for special interface preparations. Instead, designers can adapt 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.”
With a cable system that is validated to automotive standards, the RADOX EV-C Multi-Core guarantees a safe and reliable high voltage connection for vehicles including trucks, buses, lorries and passenger car applications.
“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.”
