High-temperature conduit and fittings

Harnessflex TempGuard conduit and fittings from ABB Electrification Products (Memphis, TN) are designed specifically to protect and route high-temperature cables, providing an integrated system for engine wiring in temperatures up to 392°F (200°C). The company claims the Harnessflex TempGuard conduit and fittings system increases the temperature rating by more than 60% over standard fittings in the range. According to ABB Electrification Products, the reliability of the new line and validity of the temperature ratings have been verified through long-term heat aging, as well as tensile and impact strength testing. A wide range of TempGuard fittings and conduits are available, made from specially formulated polyamide and co-polyester materials. The range includes HTC08-HTC20 conduit, with respective T- and Y-Piece fittings, straight and elbow joiners, and back shells for AMP, Bosch, Deutsch and FCI connectors.
