Universal CCS charging inlets

Charging now possible with a permanent 375 kW

The new performance class of CHARX connect universal CCS vehicle charging inlets now enables the permanent and uncooled HPC charging of vehicles and mobile machines at 375 kW with a cable cross-section of 120 mm² – with significantly higher charging powers for short periods in Boost Mode.

Main features

  • Charging standard: type 1, type 2
  • Nominal current: 375 A
  • Nominal voltage: 1,000 V DC
  • Charging power (Boost Mode): >500 kW
  • Cable cross-section: 120 mm²
  • Pt 1000 temperature sensors on the DC contacts
  • Certifications: CE, UL

Your Advantages

  • HPC-capable: a cable cross-section of 120 mm² allows electric vehicles to be charged with a permanent 375 kW
  • Waterproof, dirtproof, and dustproof due to IP6K6K/IP6K9K degree of protection in the front area even with the charging flap open
  • Easy design-in through the compact design, uniform dimensions, and identical screw-on points

The CCS charging inlets with DC conductor cross-sections of up to 120 mm² enable safe HPC charging with 375 kW (375 A/1,000 V), and in Boost Mode, more than 500 kW (500 A/1,000 V). Depending on external factors, such as the ambient temperature, it is therefore possible to charge electric vehicles in just a few minutes.

PT1000 sensors at both DC power contacts

The optimized connection technology minimizes heating of the connection system. The integrated, highly accurate temperature sensors ensure a high level of safety, as the vehicle can dynamically regulate the required charging current based on the temperature evaluation. PT1000 sensors are located at both DC power contacts. The AC range includes a PTC sensor system.

Various types of electric vehicles – from forklift trucks to dump trucks

New generations of electric cars in particular must be able to be charged in a short amount of time with maximum safety. The same applies to electric utility vehicles such as buses, transporters, forklift trucks, tractors, construction machines, mining vehicles, cleaning and disposal vehicles, emergency vehicles, and tow trucks.

Our vehicle charging inlets are the universal charging interface for all vehicle types. They are the vehicle-side counterpart to the AC or DC charging connector. Equipped with a CCS charging inlet, a vehicle can be charged with both direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC).

Electric street cleaning vehicle with close up of CCS charging inlets design-in

All vehicle charging inlets have an extremely compact design. In addition, the relevant external dimensions and screw-connection geometries of the CCS charging inlets and AC charging inlets are identical to each other.

This allows manufacturers and retrofitters to plan the same installation space for each electric vehicle regardless of the target market – from buses to motorcycles.

Secure interlock of an HPC charging plug in the vehicle charging inlet during the charging process

All vehicle charging inlets, with the exception of the GB/T DC charging inlet, are equipped with an electromagnetic locking actuator in accordance with standards. It locks the vehicle charging connector on the side of or directly onto the locking clip in the mating face during the charging process.

The actuator bolt is designed to withstand high pull-out forces. This makes it impossible to pull out the charging connector during the charging process.
