Charging mode 3, case B

The AC infrastructure charging sockets are used for case B of charging mode 3. This means that mobile AC charging cables that are typically stored in car trunks can be connected here.

Charging sockets for Europe

Type 2 charging socket with hinged cover, panel mounting frame, and actuator  

Type 2 charging socket with matching protective cover

The standardized type 2 infrastructure charging socket in accordance with IEC 62196 is designed for charging in Europe. Two different versions are available from Phoenix Contact:

  • With a modular design and screw fitting on the rear of the protective cover for front and rear mounting
  • As an easy-mount version with screw fitting on the front of the protective cover for rear mounting

The easy-mount charging socket is attached to the housing panel with the corresponding fixing frame. This enables the easy-mount protective cover to be replaced easily without needing to open the home charging station or charging station.

Charging sockets for China

Charging socket in accordance with GB/T standard, with actuator  

GB/T charging socket with matching protective cover

The standardized infrastructure charging socket in accordance with GB/T 20234 is designed for charging in the Chinese infrastructure. It is very similar to the type 2 charging socket. As specified in the standard, in addition to the locking actuator, a notch is provided for the lever of the infrastructure charging plug. In addition, every power contact has integrated temperature sensors in accordance with the new GB/T standard.

  • 20 A / 220 V AC (metric)
  • 20 A / 440 V AC (metric)
  • 32 A / 220 V AC (metric)
  • 32 A / 440 V AC (metric)

Fast and flexible mounting

The modular, space-saving design of the charging sockets enables flexible front and rear mounting, even in compact home charging stations. A drainage tube and different types of protective covers can be installed as an option. We can also supply the cable end with a step cut, pre-assembled, or compacted upon request.

Safe charging process

Due to its locking actuator, the infrastructure charging plug is reliably prevented from being pulled out during the charging process. The lock is controlled via electronics integrated into the actuator, and the current state can be queried. In the event of an emergency, e.g. a power outage, the locking actuator can also be unlocked manually by opening the charging station.
