Philatron installs giant planetary cabling line for mega EV charging cables

EV charging cable manufacturer Philatron Wire and Cable has installed a giant planetary cabling assembly line designed for the production of mega-size EV charging cables.

The new line accommodates seven 50-inch (1,270 mm) diameter reels, each capable of holding and dispensing individual conductor and tubing footage of up to 5,000 pounds.

The giant planetary advanced design ensures that the reels carrying conductors and tubing rotate to prevent unwanted twisting and torsion, a critical feature for large-size EV cables and those containing liquid cooling tubing.

Philatron’s mega-size EV charging cables are designed to support fast charging for large EVs such as buses and heavy-duty trucks. These UL-listed cables, sold under the Philaflex brand, are available in various American Wire Gauge (AWG) sizes, including 2, 1, 2/0, 3/0, 4/0, 250 MCM, 350 MCM and 500 MCM. They’re designed to withstand temperatures ranging from -60° to 105° C.
