Charging in just a few minutes: Our CHARX connect DC charging cables are used for fast DC electric vehicle charging. In addition to type 1 and type 2 charging connectors for CCS (Combined Charging System) charging stations, we also offer the GB/T standard for China. Charging powers of up to 500 kW are achieved with the aid of cooled High Power Charging charging connectors. At HPC charging stations, vehicle batteries can be charged in a matter of minutes in order to quickly top up the travel range of electric cars.

Fast DC charging in accordance with mode 4

Charging mode 4  

Charging mode 4

With DC fast charging, the charging power is generally very high. Charging processes are completed within a very short amount of time. DC charging cables in accordance with charging mode 4 have a vehicle charging connector and an open cable end. They are connected directly to charging stations which are equipped with an AC/DC converter.

DC charging cables for North America

Type 1 CCS vehicle charging connectors for the North American market  

Cooled CCS type 1 DC charging cable

The CCS Type 1 charging cables were developed for fast DC charging in accordance with SAE J1772 and IEC 62196-3 for the North American market. Both the charging connector and the cable are UL certified.

The integrated lever locking system reliably prevents the charging connector from being pulled out during the charging process.

Uncooled:

  • 40 A / 1000 V DC (AWG)
  • 80 A / 1000 V DC (AWG)
  • 200 A / 1000 V DC (AWG)

Cooled – High Power Charging:

  • 500 A / 1000 V DC (metric)

DC charging cables for Europe

Type 2 CCS vehicle charging connectors for the European market  

Cooled CCS type 2 DC charging cable

The European Commission adopted the CCS type 2 charging cables as the standard for Europe in 2013, setting an important milestone in European fast-charging technology.

During charging, the CCS type 2 DC charging cables are locked into place electromechanically via a locking actuator integrated into the vehicle charging inlet. The charging cables comply with standard IEC 62196-3 and are VDE-certified.

Uncooled:

  • 40 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 80 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 150 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 200 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 250 A / 1000 V DC (metric)

Cooled – High Power Charging:

  • 400 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 500 A / 1000 V DC (metric)

DC charging cables for China

Vehicle charging connectors for DC charging in accordance with the GB/T standard for the Chinese market  

DC charging cables in accordance with the GB/T standard

DC charging cables in accordance with GB/T 20234.3-2015 are used for fast charging in the Chinese charging infrastructure.

The charging connector features a unique locking mechanism developed by Phoenix Contact. The locking mechanism, which is controlled by the charging station, prevents the lever on the charging connector from being actuated during the charging process. This makes it impossible to pull the charging connector out of the vehicle during the charging process.

Uncooled:

  • 80 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 125 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 180 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
  • 250 A / 1000 V DC (metric)
