General Motors issues official approval for HUBER+SUHNER cable families
The RADOX® 155S FLR (cross-sections 0.35 mm2 – 6 mm2) and RADOX 155 (cross-sections 8 mm2 – 120 mm2) from HUBER+SUHNER have been approved for use in General Motors (GM) vehicles with immediate effect. The cables can be used as battery connections and to supply power to peripherals such as the air-conditioning or parking systems. The RADOX® 155S FLR is already installed in some GM vehicles as the control cable for the direct fuel injection system.
The approval removes the need for the extensive release process for Tier 2 or Tier 1 as the cables can now be used without further verification. As a result, it will be easier for HUBER+SUHNER to be considered as a supplier for new vehicle models in the future.
Independent test laboratory
The cables underwent various mechanical, electrical and chemical stress tests in an independent testing laboratory. The results confirmed the satisfaction of all the requirements according to ISO 6722 and LV 112 and are therefore also compliant with GM’s standard GMW15626.
Further HUBER+SUHNER cable families are expected to follow and complete the range.
GM manufactures vehicles in more than 30 countries and unifies a large number of well-known vehicle brands under one roof. These include brands such as Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac in the USA, Opel and Vauxhall in Europe or Holden and Wuling, Autobaojun and Faw Jiefang in the Asia-Pacific area.
