The connections between the various components, such as connectors or emergency switches consist of a flexible copper cable. REMA provides such cables because they are exactly matched in their dimensions to the contacts and pressing tools used. There are two different types: HO1N2-D cable, the insulation of which is made of chloroprene rubber, and RemaFlex cable, with a special TPE-V insulation sheath. The material is halogen-free and so the production and decommissioning are environmentally friendly.
These cables are also used in the manufacture of the MRC plugs. The insulation on the cable and the connector housing fuses bond almost inseparably as the components in both thermoplastics are identical, resulting in a gas-tight connection. The number of cores of both the cables and the sealing and insulation thicknesses of the sheath are designed as follows:
– Minimization of the power losses due to low resistance values
– Avoiding the line break by frequently moving at constant load
– No failure of the insulation in difficult conditions
– Implementing small bending radii, which facilitate installation in the vehicle or on the battery.
The first products that were manufactured over 90 years ago by REMA were made from E-Cu cable lugs according to DIN 40500. Today we offer a wide variety of cable lugs for use in forklift trucks, traction batteries and chargers. The highest standards for the copper and aluminum used, as well as a tin-coating for corrosion protection, are the guarantee for a safe and good connection. Together with REMA lines and REMA press tools, an optimal power transmission chain is formed.
REMA fuse holders are equipped with over-current fuses that protect the electrical system of a vehicle from unwanted current peaks. In order to withstand a possible thermal load, the switches are made from a highly heat-resistant plastic molding composition of UL94 V0 flammability category. The contact screw is made of conductive brass for optimum power transmission.
