Champlain launches high-voltage battery cable for EV market

Wire and cable company Champlain has launched a new high-voltage battery cable called the EXRAD ERGO FLEX-2. The cable features a Class D 150° C temperature rating, and 600 V or 1,000 V capability.

The EXRAD ERGO FLEX-2 is an irradiation cross-linked polyolefin designed to expand and contract through temperature excursions, while maintaining its connector seal.

Richard Antic, VP of Business Development at Champlain, said, “This product development was born from a large US automotive OEM who had a problem with operator ergonomics and repetitive motion concerns caused by a stiffer cable. All of our EXRAD battery cables are ‘flexible,’ but flexible is in the eye of the beholder. The industry needed something better and we designed this cable to meet that need.”
