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.
