High voltage connector for heavy-duty electric vehicle market

Cable to connector stability is critical to the operation of any electric vehicle (EV). Heavy-duty EV wiring is particularly vulnerable to high engine temperatures, strain, abrasion, vibration, ingress and corrosion. To protect and stabilize these connections, ABB Installation Products pioneered the world’s first full range of hinged high voltage connector backshells for heavy-duty EV with its Harnessflex® EVO™ Connector Interfaces.

Heavy-duty vehicles comprise a small percentage of the world’s transportation but are responsible for nearly a quarter of total estimated road emissions globally. As countries tackle climate change, commitments to reduce heavy-duty vehicle emissions are leading to tighter standards on fleet and public transportation, as well as industrial and agricultural equipment. The move toward lower-emission vehicles translates to modern engine designs with a significant amount of electrical wiring and hotter running temperatures. ABB’s Harnessflex EVO Connector Interfaces are part of a complete cable protection system designed to meet or exceed industry standards, protect critical wiring, and improve performance and reliability in high voltage applications.
