Concepts for cabling in electric vehicles

in-Tec Bensheim consults and plans complete cabling systems for powertrain electrification.

The mobile market is changing dramatically. Particularly in the commercial vehicle sector, also outside of large production lines, vehicles with an electric powertrain are now being developed, and existing vehicle lines are being converted wherever possible.

Due to this, electrical powertrain high-voltage cables with power requirements greater than 12 KW are becoming increasingly more important. The voltage level and the transmittable current quantity are divided into the corresponding power classes. 400 volts and 250 amperes are commonly used for passenger cars as well as up to 800 volts and up to 600 amperes for commercial vehicles.

We support companies and suppliers from the automotive and the commercial vehicle industry with the development of cabling concepts for high-voltage on-board power supply. Both for the retrofitting of existing powertrain systems and the development of solutions for new products.

Safe connections of loads and components in the HV and LV on-board power supply

The HV connection of hybrid and electric vehicles’ powertrain with high-voltage lines and high-voltage connection technologies is important. However, this is not all, as other components such as onboard-chargers, battery management or driver comfort systems also need to be connected safely. Apart from the connections in the high-voltage vehicle electrical system, we also plan the integration and cabling of the LV vehicle electrical system or the installation of the high-voltage-PDU (Power Distribution Unit).

Concepts for HV cabling in accordance with VDA standards

On the one hand, the connection techniques used in the HV sector must be designed for high current intensities; on the other, they must be easy to handle. The systems are complex, and the demands to be satisfied regarding the individual components’ reliability and their interfaces are high. The individual product requirements for high-voltage connectors are defined in the LV214, LV215 and LV216 delivery specifications of the German car manufacturers. The US-Car 2 and US-Car 37 specify the requirements for the North American market. When planning your project, we bear these requirements in mind for your respective application.

With knowledge and comprehensive expertise, we support our partners from the mobile industry to develop and produce individual solutions for high-voltage connections.

Please feel free to contact us

Depending on the support required by our customers, we assist them in the development phase, consult them in selecting suitable components, producing prototypes, accompanying the test phase, pre-series and, ultimately, the serial production phase.
