One of R&M’s preferred suppliers – Flexicon – has been fast tracked after supplying flexible conduit to the Lessius racing team who took part in the prestigious Formula Student races at Silverstone.
Formula Student (FS) is one of the most established educational motorsport competitions in Europe. It gives universities across the globe an opportunity to build and design a single-seat racing car and compete against other international racing teams.
As an integral part of the safety of the vehicle, Flexicon’s PVC smooth bore flexible conduit is protecting the high voltage (HV) cables on the racing car. Every HV cable that runs on the outside of the enclosure is secured and protected by the non-metallic orange conduit.
The LPCO conduit used is highly flexible and will therefore allow some torsional movement. It is also securely anchored at each end so that it can withstand a force of 200N without straining the cable. The products have also been vibration and shock tested to EN61373 Cat 2.
Colin Legg, Marketing Manager for Flexicon comments: “Protection of cabling is vital in any automotive application. Whether racing in wet or dry conditions the electrical systems must be protected from water dust and any debris from the track.”
The FS encourages teams to be innovative and to work on both the technical and business aspects of the project, Formula Student gives students from around the world the ideal opportunity to learn new skills and showcase their talent.
Gilles Nys from Lessius racing team said, “It’s always really encouraging when manufacturers like Flexicon agree to help us. The FS is a great opportunity for young engineers but building a racecar is not without its cost implications. Getting help from Flexicon really helped us to build the best possible vehicle we could.”
Says Legg:“ As a company who is proud of its engineering, we are happy to encourage and support young engineers, especially when they are partaking in such a prestigious event like FS.”
For further information about Flexicon’s range of flexible conduit please contact: R&M’s Southampton Branch on 023 8023 1800 firstname.lastname@example.org

FIRE AND WATER – A LETHAL COMBINATION FOR CABLES?
Not for the Firebar™ range of Cables!
Designed to retain its electrical operation after being subjected to fire and the damaging effects of fire fighting water equipment, the Firebar™ range of Cables (tested at the Warrington Fire Global Safety laboratories) has been proven to function after re-burning already fire damaged cable to 1000°C and then subjecting it to full submersion in water!
Further testing has also been carried out allowing for a single cable to be burnt at 100°C for in excess of four hours whilst sustaining mechanical shocks every 30 seconds, whilst also being ‘drenched’ by a ‘water spray’ device providing 1.2 litres of water per M² per second, again electrical functionality is retained.
Originally designed for the Offshore, Drilling and Marine environments, certification is awaiting final approval for Onshore environments for use in Oil and Gas Refineries/Storage Units – certification is expected imminently.
“R&M in the past 18 months have secured significant contracts in partnership with CCI and their innovative Firebar™ range of Cables. The safety aspects of this cable are second to none – guaranteeing installations 100% safety, when current standards allow for a one in three failure rate!” Andy Baggott (Director)
