HEW HV Cables - Durable And Future-Proof

Our HV cables can be produced with a specially developed additional protective jacket. This protects the cable optimally against thermal, mechanical, electrical and chemical influences. In this way, the service life and functionality can be significantly extended.


In addition, we have special cable designs with optimized insulating materials for which an increased current carrying capacity is permissible. This allows the selection of a lower cross-section in the electrical design (compared to conventional cables).


1. Engine wiring

High-voltage cables from HEW guarantee the optimum and safe distribution of high voltage to all relevant components and electrical consumers in electric vehicles. Both single-core and multi-core cables are used here.

2. Internal wiring of high-voltage components

High-voltage cables from HEW guarantee the optimum and safe distribution of high voltage to all relevant components and electrical consumers in e-vehicles.

3. Charging cables

HV cables from HEW-KABEL can be found in many areas in e-mobility. An essential area are charging cables for high voltage batteries.
