New cables are highly flexible as well as robust
These new cables meet ISO 6722-1 and LV112-1 standards as well as the new IVECO specification (No. 11-847).
“Flexibility can have its disadvantages, including compromising durability and sturdiness,” said Marc Moser, Product Manager Automotive at HUBER+SUHNER. “The automotive market needed a cable solution that was both flexible and robust, and that is why we have created these new high flex battery cables.”
The stranding is based on individual wires with OD of 0.21mm, which will help improve the flexibility of the cable compared to standard battery cables. HUBER+SUHNER’s flexible but robust cross-linked insulation material (REMS) allows cables to keep flexing performance even in the lowest temperatures where other jacket materials, such as PVC, would get very stiff.
These new cables have excellent resistance to high and low temperatures, UV rays, weathering, motor oil, fuels and hydrolysis. They are also flame retardant, resistant against battery acid, oils and other automobile fluids, and easy to strip and process.
HUBER+SUHNER’s new high flex battery cables also comply with EU-directive 2000/53/EG on end of life vehicles and are free from lead, mercury, cadmium and chrome VI.
