Elpress has long cooperated with demanding manufacturers of heavy vehicles and with their subcontractors for cabling. In these contacts, it has become clear that there is a broad spectrum of various requirements that are considered to be relevant to work with in these applications.
Besides the requirements in electrical characteristics and current-carrying capacity, the applications can also comprise high standards in terms of corrosion, vibrations and static loads.
Elpress has together with the customers identified the following test standards as being considered relevant for applications in heavy vehicles:
• Electrical properties - IEC61238-1, class A.
• Environmental requirements - DIN V 40 046, part 37.
• Static loads - Swedish Standard SEN 245010 provides relatively high load limits and is therefore useful here.
• Vibration testing - EN 50155 has been used where applicable.
Elpress has extensive experience in the industry for heavy vehicles and our ambition to provide qualified materials and knowledge for electrical connections, together with a high level of service and product knowledge, means that you get a secure connection.
