ABB Harnessflex developing solutions for Electric Vehicles (EV)

With countries across the globe looking to tackle climate change through less carbon emissions and greater sustainability, the shift towards electric modes of transport is ever-growing. With the electric vehicle (EV) industry projected to see compounded annual growth (CAGR) of 21.1% over the next 10 years, we can soon expect to see more electric cars, buses, trucks, trams and trains in our cities.

With electric vehicles soon to become the norm, it is important that their reputation for reliability is maintained. Electric vehicles contain significant critical wiring that facilitates their operation. Therefore, the optimum level of cable protection is absolutely crucial in order to maintain the vehicle's productivity. Without the right cable protection system in place, electric vehicles may become prone to critical electrical failure which will cause them to breakdown, resulting in timetable disruptions and repair costs.

Supporting the reliability and productivity of these vehicles is Harnessflex EVO conduit systems, designed and developed specially for protecting essential wiring on modern electric vehicles. Featuring our signature vibration friendly profile (VFP) as standard, as well as UV and heat stabilisation as standard, Harnessflex EVO conduit systems protect cables against harsh elements and environments, minimising the risk of electrical failure.

Featuring robust, orange conduit and our soon-to-be-available Y&T fittings for reliable, complete system integration, you can explore the innovative Harnessflex EVO system range that is currently in development below.
