HUBER+SUHNER, a global supplier of electrical and optical connectivity solutions, has launched a new addition to its RADOX high-power charging line.
The RADOX HPC500 is a cooled charging cable system that allows continuous charging at 500 Amperes, even in high-temperature environments.
Other improvements and new features include an IP67 connector protection rating, an optional ready-to-use metering system, and replaceable contacts for longer service life.
Alongside the cooled cable system, HUBER+SUHNER has also developed a new 24 V cooling unit to increase cooling capacity and reduce operational temperatures of the power lines, enabling continuous 500 A charging at environmental temperatures of up to 50° C.
The new plug-and-play cooling unit is pre-filled with coolant, and is designed to fit into existing charging stations, reducing installation time. The speeds of both the heat exchanger ventilators and the coolant pump are automatically adjusted to achieve the most efficient performance. At normal operating levels, lower speeds result in lower noise levels.
“The improvements we have made to the complete HPC system make this a truly ground-breaking product which enables continuous charging at 500 A for the first time,” said Max Göldi, Market Manager Industry at HUBER+SUHNER. “This helps charging station operators prepare for the future with an improved return on investment.”
