The evolution from copper to aluminium - Are you ready?

Berlin, (PresseBox) - High-voltage applications are essential in the automobile of today, especially in light of the industry’s shifting focus to electromobility. Weight reduction and decreasing CO2 emissions are necessary and one solution is the replacement of copper by aluminium in automotive electrical wiring systems, particularly in wiring harness applications and hybrid vehicles.

These and the other major issues affecting wiring in the automotive industry now and in the future will be the focus of IQPC’s conference Automotive Cables and Plugs from 13 - 15 April in Munich. Leading companies and institutions including PSA Peugeot Citroën, Daimler Trucks, Daimler AG, Delphi Deutschland GmbH, Tyco Electronics AMP GmbH and Continental Automotive GmbH will present first-hand experiences and case studies. Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss:

• New concepts for high voltage wiring harness and discuss safety requirements
• High power & high speed data – changing E/EDS system complexity and wire harness design
• Standardisation and test methods of charging systems, batteries, safety and EMC of electrical vehicles
• Aluminium as a replacement for copper and connection methods
• Automated manufacturing of wire harness and discuss customer benefits

Delegates are encouraged to take part in interactive workshops on the subject area they will benefit from most:

• Software architectures and AUTOSAR for automotive control systems
• Energy management for electrical systems
• Using power line communication to reduce harness in automotive
• Optimising the engineering process for harness design – getting there faster with new methods
