The Function and Storage Precautions of EV Cables

The Function and Storage Precautions of EV Cables

With the rapid development of science and technology, the emergence of new energy vehicles has attracted widespread attention from society, and many international brand car manufacturers are also developing smart new energy vehicles. New energy vehicles are popular because compared with motor vehicles, they are energy-saving, environmentally friendly, and have performance that meets household requirements. The types of new energy vehicles mainly include pure electric vehicles, extended range electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, fuel cell electric vehicles, and hydrogen engine vehicles. Now there are more pure electric vehicles on the market, such as the pure electric buses we ride on during travel (which have already become popular all over the world, such as the BYD pure electric buses in Shenzhen, China) and pure electric vehicles.

The effective role of EV cables

Pure electric new energy vehicles must pay high attention to their durability. Unlike hybrid electric vehicles, they have no gasoline and cannot continue to drive. Currently, the durability of many new energy electric vehicles does not exceed 300 kilometers, so when driving around 260 kilometers, we must consider finding a charging station for recharging as soon as possible. During the charging process, waiting time is also a pain point for users, and delays may occur in doing things. The EV cables used by super charging stations have excellent performance, greatly shortening the charging time.

Charging cables, as the current carriers connecting electric vehicles and charging piles, not only need information transmission between the two, but also need to control charging. On the basis of ensuring good insulation performance, they also have high resistance to aging, heat, oil, and weather, because they often bend and drag during use, and require the cable's flexibility and mechanical performance. Therefore, the role of EV cables is very crucial. In the future, with the gradual popularization of new energy vehicles, EV cable technology will continue to be updated, creating more efficient charging technology.

What should be noticed when EV cables are stored?

  • Avoid human damage. Wires directly laid on the external wall must be careful not to be damaged by humans. The wire mainly relies on the external insulation layer for insulation. When the wire is aging, hardened, brittle, or falls off, the surface insulation performance will be reduced.

  • Pay attention to waterproofing. The EV cables need to pay attention to waterproofing. When it is humid, water will easily penetrate into the metal conductor, causing short circuit leakage. This not only affects the service life of the wire, but also easily causes accidents.

  • Prevent aging from exposure. There are many local network EV cables under the eaves. At this time, pay attention to not exposing them to direct sunlight, and the ambient temperature should not be too high. Because ultraviolet light will accelerate the aging of EV cables, thereby shortening the service life.
