HVC-Technologies provides GIGAVAC relays
For the fourth season in a row HVC-Technologies domiciled in Untereisesheim near Heilbronn provides us with high voltage relays from GIGAVAC. The company founded 2002 in Santa Barbara, California, is considered the market-leading producer of high voltage relays and sealed switching products. Since 2003, GIGAVAC products are being distributed exclusively by HVC-Technologies in Germany.
For our new racing car, code name EFR08e05, the relays are being used as accumulator isolation relays (in short: AIR). Their purpose is the certain separation of the accumulator from the rest of the car in case of an accident. The relays are also being used to pre- and discharge the intermediate circuit of the car’s tractive system. The parts from GIGAVAC proved to reliable for our last 3 vehicles so we are confident they will continue to do so in the future.
The whole team Elbflorace wants to thank HVC-Technologies and especially Mr. Michael Anderle for the quick support and we look foward to a continuing cooperation.
This year we could again rely on the excellent quality of our partner TKG. Thanks to them, this year's Bolide can once again stand on carbon rims, because they manufactured the rim shape for us. The heat sinks were also manufactured by our in-house erosion department. Furthermore, you were able to take over the demanding production of the self-developed engine including the high-precision titanium shaft for us. Many thanks for the uncomplicated, competent and reliable cooperation!
