ABB introduces high voltage connector for heavy-duty electric vehicle market

The Electric Vehicle Orange color of ABB’s Harnessflex EVO Connector Interfaces indicate high voltage wiring and components.

ABB Installation Products developed a range of hinged high voltage connector backshells for heavy-duty electric vehicles with its Harnessflex EVO Connector Interfaces.

The move toward lower-emission vehicles translates to modern engine designs with a significant amount of electrical wiring and hotter running temperatures, ABB notes. Cable to connector stability is critical to the operation of any electric vehicle. Heavy-duty EV wiring is particularly vulnerable to high engine temperatures, strain, abrasion, vibration, ingress and corrosion, the company added.

The Electric Vehicle orange color of ABB’s Harnessflex EVO Connector Interfaces indicate high voltage wiring and components, deliver cable-to-connector strain relief with high mechanical performance, and prevent debris intrusion, ABB says.

The company says its Harnessflex EVO Connector Interfaces were Designed with a tamper-proof, integrated clip system, add an extra layer of security to high voltage systems, and strengthen resistance to abrasion and vibration on EV applications.
