The universal CCS vehicle inlets enable fast DC and conventional AC charging with just one mating face. This covers all charging situations. These inlets can accommodate both AC and DC vehicle charging connectors, making them the ideal interface for charging all electric vehicle types. Along with the CCS vehicle inlets, we also provide DC inlets in accordance with the Chinese GB/T standard.

Your advantages

  • Quick-response sensor technology provides fast and accurate temperature measurement at all contacts
  • Efficient power transmission and long-term stability, thanks to silver-plated contact surfaces
  • Uniform installation space, screw-connection points, and outer contour dimensions (CCS inlets only)
  • With protective caps for the AC and DC contacts (CCS inlets only)
  • Developed and produced in accordance with the IATF 16949 automotive standard and ISO 9001
  • Tested in accordance with selected tests from automotive standards LV124, LV214, LV215-2, GB/T

Universal CCS inlets for North America

Type 1 CCS vehicle inlets  

Type 1 CCS vehicle inlets for combined AC and DC charging in North America

These vehicle inlets are suitable for charging electric vehicles with alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) in accordance with the American standard CCS type 1. The charging connector is locked in place during charging via an electromechanical actuator.

Universal CCS inlets for Europe

Type 2 CCS vehicle inlet  

Type 2 CCS vehicle inlets for combined AC and DC charging in Europe

These vehicle inlets are suitable for charging electric vehicles with alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) in accordance with the European CCS type 2 standard. The charging connector is locked in place during charging via an electromechanical actuator.

Universal DC inlets for China

GB/T vehicle inlets  

GB/T vehicle inlets for DC charging in China

These vehicle inlets are suitable for charging electric vehicles with direct current (DC) in accordance with the Chinese standard GB/T.

Uniform dimensions

The CCS vehicle inlets feature uniform outer contour dimensions. This enables electric vehicle manufacturers to provide for the same installation space in the car body. A vehicle inlet for the North American market (CCS type 1) fits just as well as an inlet for the European market (CCS type 2).

High-precision temperature measuring

The temperature at the power contacts must also be monitored to ensure a safe charging process. If the system overheats, for example in the event of high outside temperatures or an overload, this is detected by the PT1000 resistance sensors. In the event of overheating, the charging controller is then able to stop the charging process or reduce the charging power.

Secure locking during charging

Actuator lock in the CCS vehicle inlet

The CCS vehicle inlets are equipped with an electromechanical locking actuator in accordance with standards. It locks the vehicle charging connector on the side of or directly onto the locking clip in the mating face during the charging process. The actuator bolt is designed to withstand high pull-out forces. It is therefore not possible to pull out the charging connector during the charging process.
