Huber+Suhner adds Radox HPC200 to EV high power charging range
Extending the electric vehicle (EV) Radox HPC portfolio, Huber+Suhner as added the DC high power charging Radox HPC200 to its Radox HPC portfolio.
It enables operators of DC fast charging stations, ranging from 50 to 500kW, to procure all charging cables from a single source. This future-proofs the infrastructure by ensuring any upgrades to more advanced charging systems can be done simply and cost-effectively, says the company.
The Radox HPC200 provides continuous uncooled charging for EVs at 200A and peak charging up to 300A. It is initially available with the CCS2 interface and intended for use in cities, highways, hotels, shopping malls and fleet charging stations. Initially, the RADOX HPC200 is available with the CCS2 interface.
The HPC200 has the same features as tHPC500, claimed to be the world’s first cooled charging cable system that allows continuous charging at 500A, even in high-temperature environments which the company recently released. Both have an ergonomic design for easy handling of the lightweight connector, as well as improved cable flexibility. Huber+Shuner says the system is future-proof as a result of its IP67 protection rating for safety beyond standards, replaceable contacts for extended service life, and the option of a ready-to-use metering system in preparation for future demands.
Huber+Suhner is headquartered in Switzerland. It develops and manufactures components and system solutions for electrical and optical connectivity. Its portfolio includes cables, connectors and systems – developed from the three core technologies of radio frequency (RF), fibre optics and low frequency – for customers in the communication, transportation and industrial sectors. The products are designed to be reliable even under harsh environment conditions.
