CHARX connect – charging sockets for charging stations and home chargers

Charging sockets for charging stations and home charging points

The CHARX connect infrastructure charging sockets are mounted in AC charging stations and home chargers. These charging sockets enable mode 3 vehicle battery charging via single or three-phase charging cables with maximum charging powers of up to 26 kW. The sockets accommodate type 2 charging connectors for Europe in accordance with IEC 62196 and in accordance with the GB/T standard for China. The user can determine the status of the charging point intuitively via the freely controllable RGB LED indicator in the protective cover.

Example illustration: Charging with alternating current according to mode 3

Charging with alternating current in accordance with mode 3, case B What exactly does that mean?

In case B of charging mode 3, the charging station has a charging socket instead of a fixed charging cable. In this case, connecting and charging a vehicle requires a mobile charging cable with a vehicle charging connector and infrastructure charging plug, which is usually carried along in the trunk.

Most often, public charging stations are built according to case B. Case B is only permissible for the European type 2 standard and the Chinese GB/T standard, not for the American type 1 standard.

Integrated LED display For intuitive operation

Users of your charging station can see the availability and status at a glance with the colored LED display integrated in the protective cover. The LEDs are freely controlled by the charging controller via pulse width modulation (PWM). Glowing, flashing, and pulsating in all RGB colors are possible. This allows you to configure an individual color value for each state of your charging point that matches your corporate design. Here is an example:

Type 2 charging socket glows green
Glowing green: Charging point is free and ready for charging
Type 2 charging socket pulses/glows blue
Pulsating blue: charging in progress, glowing blue: charging completed
Type 2 charging socket flashes red
Flashing red: Charging process interrupted due to a fault
Type 2 charging socket glows orange
Glowing orange: Charging point is reserved for a user
