Sustainable performance under the hoods of hybrids
Hybrid cars have new requirements. Electric engines require 600 volts in close proximity to critical safety elements, and must not generate any electromagnetic interference.
Nexans’ cables are mounted in confined spaces and subjected to extreme thermal stress. Designed to be both flexible and compact, they must also endure 180°C for more than 3,000 hours while being subjected to oil and aggressive chemical agents.
Higher temperature insulation also allows OEMs to get weight savings on the total vehicle, by using smaller, optimized cross-sections and thin wall insulation. This Nexans solution helps to lower CO2 and fuel emissions.
