It will showcase its state-of-the-art ultra-fast RADOX® HPC High Power Charging system alongside its antenna solution for autonomous driving
Pfäffikon, 9 May. HUBER+SUHNER, leading manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, will present its quality power solutions to combat the demand for fast charging systems in the most harsh and demanding environments at the Electric & Hybrid Technology Expo Europe 2018, in Hannover, May 15-17.
The state-of-the-art RADOX® HPC (High Power Charging System) for electric vehicles allows to increase the power-throughput of a charging cable to 500 kW and so grants fast and effective charging – with charge times of less than 15 minutes (80% State of Charge). At the same time, it offers a smaller cable cross section compared to the traditional high-powered cable option as they are thin, flexible, lightweight and easy to handle.
“Currently, charging times are lengthy and disruptive for everyday life. Many charging spots offer an average output of 7-50 kW, with full charging taking more than three hours. But with our HPC cable offering, charging currents of up to 500 kW are possible and take as little as 15 minutes,” said Max Göldi, market manager HPC at HUBER+SUHNER. “The RADOX® HPC is designed to be fast-charging, light-weight and easy to handle making it the go-to product for electric vehicle drivers to turn to and the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe is the perfect place to showcase our EV solutions.”
Also on display will be the high voltage distribution unit (HVDU) and the RADOX® automotive connection system (RACS) 2nd generation. The HVDU is fully customisable and assures power distribution between all high voltage components within every electric vehicle, land, water or air – even in demanding and harsh environments such as snow ploughs, street sweepers and trucks. By combining the HVDU with the innovative RACS wire-to-device connection system, users can benefit from considerably smaller space requirements, with 360° electromagnetic shielding and excellent environment protection.
Another innovative technology at the show will be the injection moulded radar antennas for autonomous driving. With a conformal antenna design and low loss distribution network, the antenna is perfectly positioned to aid the rollout to autonomous vehicles. HUBER+SUHNER will showcase a live demonstration of this technology directly at the booth.
Max Göldi, Market Manager HPC at HUBER+SUHNER, will present a demo of the RADOX® HPC high power charging system on 15 May at 3pm local time at booth 382.
All the products will be presented at the HUBER+SUHNER at the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo Europe 2018 exhibition from 15-17 May. For more information see www.evtechexpo.eu
