Bensheim, Germany – May 3, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensor solutions, launches its next generation of charging cables and inlets for hybrid and electric vehicles. The new charging cables are specifically designed to meet DIN EN 61851. Type 2 vehicle connector additionally meets IEC 62196. These standards define several types of on-board vehicle interfaces: type 1 for North America and Japan and type 2 for Europe with two charging modes at a wall power outlet or on high-performance charging stations.
TE Connectivity’s latest generation of AMP+ charging components enables significantly faster charging of hybrid and electric vehicles.
In compliance with the latest international charging standard IEC 62572, this AC charging solution can be plugged into any home power outlet with no specific charging infrastructure. The advanced integrated printed circuit boards monitor charging temperatures, while embedded Human Machine Interface (HMI) indicates fault and status. In addition, the enhanced housing design provides high impact, drop and drive-over resistance. These outstanding properties make the new AMP+ charging cable generation highly performing, easy-to-use and most robust.
Specifically designed to correspond with its charging cables, TE also launches its next generation combined charging system (CCS) inlet types that meet vehicle manufacturer requirements for plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles to charge in just a few minutes.
