Charging with alternating current in accordance with mode 3

Charging mode 3 with case B (top) and case C (bottom)  

Charging mode 3 with case B (top) and case C (bottom)

We will provide the right charging cable for conventional AC charging in accordance with mode 3, suitable for the intended application:

  • Mobile charging cables are used in charging case B. They are, for example, stored in the trunk of the vehicle. The cable is equipped with a connecting element at both ends.
  • Mobile adapter charging cables are the ideal solution for charging case B, for example if a vehicle with an American type 1 charging socket needs to be charged at a European type 2 charging station.
  • You need a charging cable with a free cable end for charging case C. In this case, the charging cable is permanently connected to the charging station.

Double-award winner for design and ergonomics

German Design Award and iF Design Award labels  

The AC charging cables are winners of the German Design Award and the iF Design Award

The AC charging cables have already received two renowned design prizes: after first winning the German Design Award 2019, they went on to win the iF Design Award 2019.

During the development of the new AC charging cable product range in collaboration with professional designer Stephan Gahlow from Hamburg, a conscious effort was made to focus on achieving an ergonomic and attractive design, and a modern, two-colored look. Robust, top-quality materials were used. The AC charging cables clearly convinced both of the independent, international jury panels with these outstanding product characteristics.

Additional locking option

Locking with a padlock  

Locking an AC charging connector with a padlock

As an option, our type 1 and GB/T AC charging cables can be locked with a padlock. The maximum shackle diameter is 4 mm. This prevents the locking lever from being actuated once inserted.
