DC charging is ideal for short charging breaks on longer journeys. Charge your electric vehicle quickly with the standardized DC charging cables for Type 1, Type 2, and GB/T from Phoenix Contact. The integrated sensors enable precise temperature monitoring, thereby guaranteeing a safe charging process.
Always one step ahead: Phoenix Contact is also developing the next expansion stage of fast charging, namely charging cables with integrated cooling system. With the same geometries as the already established Combined Charging System (CCS), charging times will be further minimized. A charging current of up to 500 A at 1000 V DC will be achieved.

Your advantages

  • Complete product range with CCS Type 1, CCS Type 2, and GB/T standard
  • Silver-plated surface of the power and signal contacts
  • Integrated temperature sensors for monitoring the temperature at the power contacts
  • Convenient handling, thanks to the ergonomic handle and additional rubber grip components
  • Production in accordance with ISO/TS 16949

DC Vehicle Connectors with open cable end according to Mode 4

In the case of DC fast charging, high levels of charging power are generally transmitted. Charging processes are completed within a very short time. DC charging cables according to charging mode 4 have a Vehicle Connector and an open cable end. They are connected directly to charging stations which feature an AC/DC converter. A plug-in connection is not specified in the standard on the infrastructure side.

Choose between the following variants:

  • Charging standard CCS Type 1 (North America), CCS Type 2 (Europe), and GB/T (China)
  • Charging currents of 60 A, 80 A, 125 A, 200 A, 250 A
  • Various cable lengths

CCS Type 1 DC charging cables – DC charging in North America

CCS Type 1 Vehicle Connector for the North American market  

CCS Type 1 Vehicle Connector

The CCS Type 1 charging cables were developed for fast DC charging in accordance with SAE J1772 and IEC 62196-3 for the North American market. Both the CCS Type 1 Vehicle Connectors and the AWG cables are UL-certified. A lever locking mechanism prevents the Vehicle Connector from being pulled out under load.

  • 60 A / 600 V DC (AWG)
  • 125 A / 600 V DC (AWG)


CCS Type 2 DC charging cables – DC charging in Europe

CCS Type 2 Vehicle Connector for the European market  

CCS Type 2 Vehicle Connector

2013 marked an important milestone for fast charging technology in Europe when the European Commission specified Type 2 as the standard for Europe. Fast DC charging as well as AC charging is also carried out using the Combined Charging System (CCS) for this connector geometry. During the charging process, the DC charging cables interlock electromechanically by means of a locking actuator that is integrated in the Vehicle Inlet. The charging cables conform to standard IEC 62196-3 and are VDE-certified.

  • 60 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 125 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 200 A / 1000 V DC (metric)

GB/T DC charging cables – DC charging in China

Vehicle Connector for DC charging in accordance with GB/T standard for the Chinese market  

DC Vehicle Connector in accordance with GB/T

DC charging cables in accordance with GB/T 20234.3-2015 are used for fast charging in the Chinese charging infrastructure. The Vehicle Connector has a unique locking mechanism that was developed by Phoenix Contact. The locking mechanism, which is controlled by the charging station, prevents the lever being actuated on the Vehicle Connector during the charging process. It is therefore not possible to remove the Vehicle Connector during the charging process.

  • 80 A / 750 V DC (metric)
  • 125 A / 750 V DC (metric)
  • 250 A / 750 V DC (metric)
