LED status indicator in the protective cover of the infrastructure charging socket

Choose whether a round or square protective cover better fits the target design of your home charger or charging station. An LED status indicator integrated in the protective cover can be selected as an option. This allows the end user to see the status of the charging point at first glance.

The RGB LEDs can be controlled freely, with glowing, flashing, and pulsing in all RGB colors possible. The precise light guide technology also ensures a homogeneous light pattern with optimum diffusion.

Your individual logo
For an alternative to the Phoenix Contact logo, we are also happy to manufacture the protective cover with your logo on request: either imprinted or as a UV- and weather-resistant plastic label.

Infrastructure charging socket shutter

The shutter ensures touch protection of all electrical contacts on the AC charging socket. Standards in some countries, such as Spain, Portugal, Great Britain, France, Sweden, Italy and Switzerland, require touch protection. Operation is simple and intuitive, without turning or pushing – inserting the charging connector opens the protective screen.

The touch protection of all power and signal contacts increases electrical safety and also protects against vandalism and moisture. Our shutter is compatible with all type 2 charging sockets and protective covers from Phoenix Contact.

  • Touch protection in accordance with IEC 61851-1, IEC 62196-1, IEC 62196-2
  • Degree of protection: IPXXD

Infrastructure charging socket, temperature sensor technology, and locking actuator

Choose how your infrastructure charging socket should be equipped: with or without temperature monitoring and with 3- or 4-position locking actuator.

Integrated temperature monitoring
With precise temperature sensor technology directly at the power contacts, the charging process can be interrupted in the event of overheating to protect users against danger and the charging station against damage.

Locking actuator
The charging socket is available with either a three-position or four-position locking actuator and corresponding connecting cable.

Silver-plated contacts
The silver-plated surfaces of the power and signal contacts ensure efficient power transmission, optimum corrosion protection, and a long service life.

Plug-in connecting cables for the infrastructure charging socket

By choosing the separately available cable set, you can determine the charging power of your charging socket. The plug-in connecting cables simplify installation and subsequent replacement of the charging socket in the event of maintenance.

Choose between a single phase and three-phase cable set and between a charging current of 20 A and 32 A. In addition, you can decide which cable length - between 0.3 m and 2 m - you need for your application. Longer cables are possible on request.

Whether it is making a phone call or carrying their shopping – in everyday charging situations, electric car drivers often only have one hand free to connect the charging cable to the charging station.

That is why we have consistently designed our AC charging sockets for one-handed operation: Both the protective cover and the shutter can be opened effortlessly with the charging connector, without needing to use your other hand. A small feature that makes a big difference and is appreciated by many of our customers.

PTC temperature sensors at the power contacts of the CHARX connect modular AC charging sockets

The optional temperature sensors reliably protect the charging socket from overheating, which can occur due to foreign objects or contamination, for example. This protects users from danger and prevents expensive damage to the charging station.

The sensors consist of a chain of PTC resistors, located at each power contact. By detecting the resistance values, the charging controller can initiate an immediate shutdown when a limit temperature is exceeded.

Award ceremony for the German Design Award 2023 and iF Design Award 2023 for the CHARX connect modular AC charging sockets

CHARX connect modular won two prestigious design awards for its modular and attractive design:

  • iF Design Award 2023
  • German Design Award 2023

Our clever modular principle was a key factor in this win by enabling all components to be freely combined and tailored to the individual requirements of the customer’s application.
