Now available in Europe through TTI, Inc., a world leading specialist distributor of electronic components, is Phoenix Contact’s highly reliable range of AC charging cables and AC charging controllers for E-mobility applications. The devices enable the implementation of various concepts for intelligent charging infrastructures which can be used to promote cost-effective operation. Ergonomically designed AC vehicle connectors Type 2 have been developed for the European market on the basis of IEC 62196-2 and allow charging electric vehicles safely (thanks to a locking mechanism), and conveniently (thanks to additional gripping components). Depending on the cable diameter and the number of phases (single-phase or three-phase) charging with a rated voltage of 250V or 480V and rated current of 20A or 32A is possible. Highly robust and made of high-quality materials, the components benefit from strong strain relief and low insertion and withdrawal forces. AC charging controllers ensure a high degree of security and interoperability with electric vehicles according to IEC 61851-1. The EV Charge Control Basic is a compact, cost-effective controller solution specifically designed for simple charging points (wall boxes for home garages, carports, and underground garages). It features configurable inputs, outputs, and charging currents. A standardized interface (Modbus RTU Slave) allows for fast and simple integration.
