Electric vehicle charging – safe, highly available, and uninterrupted

Charging stations consist of sensitive components that need to be protected

The charging infrastructure for electric vehicles is just as complex as the vehicle itself: From the power supply and components for visualizing the charging process to the cables for Ethernet communication, the charging station is equipped with a large number of important and sensitive components. They need to be protected to ensure that the charging infrastructure has a long service life and that the charging process is uninterrupted.

A comprehensive protection concept therefore consists of three areas:

  • Our type 1+2 combined lightning current and surge arresters and type 2 protective devices for the power supply protect feed-in against dangerous overvoltages caused by lightning strikes and switching operations from the grid.
  • Use type 3 surge protective devices to ensure the long-term function of numerous sensitive components within your charging station.
  • The communication components are usually connected over Ethernet and should also be protected.
