Charging with direct current is particularly suitable for short breaks during longer journeys. This is possible with charging systems for all three standards: Type 1, Type 2, and GB/T. The Combined Charging System (CCS) offers the highest flexibility: vehicles equipped with this charging system can be charged with either AC or DC.

Your advantages

  • Comprehensive product range, consisting of CCS Type 1, CCS Type 2, and GB/T
  • Safe charging, thanks to locking mechanisms
  • Temperature monitoring by integrated sensors in all DC Vehicle Connectors
  • Frost-proof lever locking mechanism

DC Vehicle Connector with open cable end according to Mode 4

In the case of DC fast charging, high levels of charging power are generally transmitted. At up to 250 A DC, charging processes are completed within a very short time. The cable for the Vehicle Connector is connected directly to the charging station where the AC/DC converter is located. Due to increased safety requirements, a plug-in connection is only provided on the vehicle side.

CCS Vehicle Connector Type 1 – DC charging in North America

CCS Vehicle Connector Type 1 for the North American market  

CCS Vehicle Connector Type 1

In the USA, the type 1 DC CCS charging system is used for charging according to SAE J1772 and IEC 62196-3. The lever locking mechanism is also supported by an additional actuator lock. The CCS Vehicle-Inlet also makes single-phase AC and fast DC charging possible.  

CCS Vehicle Connector Type 2 – DC charging in Europe

CCS Vehicle Connector Type 2 for the European market  

CCS Vehicle Connector Type 2

Type 2 is the standard specified for Europe by the European commission. In addition to AC charging, the connector geometry also allows fast DC charging with the help of CCS. The charging cable is equipped with larger conductor cross sections for charging powers up to 200 A / 1000 V DC. The electromechanical actuator lock prevents premature removal during the charging process.

GB/T Vehicle Connector – DC charging in China

Vehicle Connector for the Chinese market for DC charging according to the GB/T standard  

DC Vehicle Connector according to GB/T

The GB/T standard allows a connector geometry for fast DC charging at Chinese fast charging stations. Phoenix Contact developed a unique locking mechanism for the increased safety requirements during DC charging which is integrated into the Vehicle Connector.
