Leoni Cable's Hivocar 150 cable, which is developed for 150°C requirements, provides thermal properties that exceed ISO 6722 and SAE J2183 as well as the LV 212 standard-specific temperature class D (-40 to +150°C). The cable withstands short-term aging at 200°C for 240 hr unscathed. Tests for long-term aging show that the cable can be used at the upper temperature limit for as many as 4000 hr, rather than the 3000 hr for a standard cable. Irradiated cross-linked PE insulation in combination with a TPE-U sheath make the cable significantly more robust for both thermal and mechanical characteristics. This ensures a longer service life as well as greater safety margin with cable temperature peaks. Additionally, the cable was optimized for superior EMI/EMC performance as well as high flexibility, and it exceeds the requirements for hybrid and fuel cell powertrains.For more information, visit booth 1125 at the SAE 2009 World Congress.
