The universal CHARX connect CCS charging inlets enable the AC and DC charging of electric cars and electric utility vehicles – from low charging powers all they way to High Power Charging (HPC). The vehicle charging inlets were originally developed for leading manufacturers in the automotive industry and are already being used in the new generations of electric vehicles. With them, the electric vehicle can be charged continuously with a power of 250 kW, and temporarily even up to 500 kW.

Your advantages

  • Fast HPC charging up to a temporary power of 500 kW with cable cross-sections up to 95 mm²
  • Safe against overheating with fast and precise temperature measurement at every DC power contact
  • Protected against jet water and sealed against dirt with IP67 degree of protection, with additional IP6K6K and IP6K9K on the front
  • Simple design-in with uniform dimensions for the installation space, outer contour, and screw-on points
  • Developed in accordance with the IATF 16949 automotive standard and conforming to IEC 62196, SAE J1772, and GB/T 20234

Charging in the shortest amount of time with HPC-capable CCS charging sockets

Fast charging with HPC charging connectors and CCS charging inlets  

Ultra-fast HPC charging: The CCS charging inlets enable charging powers of up to 500 kW

Previous CCS charging inlets enabled the fast charging of vehicles with powers of up to 200 kW. High Power Charging with higher powers was previously not possible on the vehicle side, because it led to dangerous overheating in the vehicle.

Our new CHARX connect CCS charging inlets with a DC cable cross-section of up to 95 mm² now enable safe HPC charging with powers of up to 500 kW. It is therefore now possible to charge electric vehicles in just a few minutes, instead of over several hours.

The optimized connection technology between the DC power contacts and the high-voltage cables also minimizes heating of the connection system. The integrated temperature sensor technology is the first of its kind in the world and ensures maximum safety with high-precision temperature measuring on both power contacts. The vehicle can then regulate the requested charging current dynamically based on the temperature evaluation.

One CCS charging inlet for all vehicle types and charging types

Various electric vehicles: Cars, small trucks, buses, and cleaning vehicles  

From small vehicles to utility vehicles: The CCS charging inlets can be used universally

The demand for fast charging is growing constantly. The requirement on the latest e-car generations in particular is increasingly on them being able to be charged in the shortest amount of time and with the most stringent safety standards.

The same applies to electric utility vehicles such as buses, transporters, forklift trucks, tractors, construction machines, mining vehicles, cleaning and disposal vehicles, emergency vehicles, tow trucks, and much more.

Our CCS vehicle charging sockets are the universally suited charging interface for all vehicle types. They are the vehicle-side counterpart to the AC or CCS charging connector. With the Combined Charging System (CCS), which we played a major part in co-developing, a vehicle can be charged with direct current (DC) or with alternating current (AC) using the same charging socket.

Compact designs and simplified design-in

Cleaning vehicle with CCS charging inlet  

Identical installation space: The dimensions and geometries of the CCS type 1 and CCS type 2 charging sockets are identical

The external dimensions and screw-connection geometries of the vehicle charging inlets make them extremely compact, and the designs for the CCS type 1 and CCS type 2 are identical.

This means that manufacturers and conversion specialists can always plan the same installation space for charging sockets in their vehicles, regardless of the target market.

Secure locking during charging

Actuator locking in the CCS charging inlet  

Save charging process: The interlock prevents the charging connector from being pulled out

The CCS charging inlets are equipped with an electromagnetic 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. This makes it impossible to pull out the charging connector during the charging process.
