ABB unveils high-voltage connectors for the EV HGV charging market


By Luke Willetts - 4th September 2023

UK / Switzerland - ABB Ltd of Zürich, Switzerland, has unveiled its new hinged high-voltage connectors for heavy-duty electric vehicle charging, which increase cable-to-connector stability in high-voltage applications, thereby increasing performance, reliability and safety for users and operators. Heavy-duty wiring is always susceptible to high engine temperatures, vibration and corrosion. The company believes that its Harnessflex EVO Connector solves all of these problems, which is tested and produced at ABB’s Coleshill, UK facility.

Nathan Cook, Global Business Development Manager for Cable Management Products, ABB Installation Products said: “ABB’s first-of-its-kind Harnessflex EVO Connector Interfaces reduce cable movement and form tighter junction joints for safer and more secure high voltage connections in electric ancillaries, DC/DC converters, onboard chargers, high voltage battery packs, hybrid systems, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, and dynamic and static power systems.”
