intelligent charging cable

Case Study


Enable electrical infrastructures for more usable electro mobility, providing a network of charging spots for hybrid and electric vehicles.

Our Approach

TE and Berlin-based Ubitricity collaborated on an innovative charging system that will make existing electrical infrastructure more useable for electro mobility. The new intelligent charging cables provide secure connections, cost-effective measurement of energy collected, and transmission of the transaction data to the energy source. 

The Results

The intelligent charging cable is outfitted with the IEC 62196-2 Type 2 plug from TE as well as electronic systems and supports the charging mode 3. The technology is downward compatible, so that the intelligent charging cable is enough for charging everywhere ─ allowing drivers to charge at system outlets as well as at standard charging columns.
