JAE has developed and launched the KW04 Series EV charging connector compatible with the Type-2 CCS (Combined Charging System) electric vehicle fast charging standard, which is now becoming increasingly popular in Europe.
Recently, the exhaust gas regulations for automobile have been tightened as part of the global warming measures, and the market for EV with a lower environmental impact has been expanding.
Along with the spread of electrical cars, in Europe implementation of the charging stations is also rapidly increasing. To cater to these demands, JAE has launched the KW04 Series EV charging cable connector, compatible with the European Type-2 CCS fast charging standard.
As the EV market evolves and develops and the number of charging stations increase, more and more drivers will have the confidence to switch to an Electric vehicle. The more EV drivers on the road the quicker the lifecycle of the plugs / contacts will be reached.
Usually, charging connectors that have reached their product life span have to be totally exchanged. However, the KW04 has been designed in a way that allows for replacement of the plug interface, thus reducing the time to replace both broken and lifecycle exhausted interfaces. To reduce the cost of the replacement the design has been carefully thought through to enable the interface exchange to be possible while the cable is attached to the charge unit, reducing both time and need for a technician. The simple exchange procedure is easy to follow and are detailed in the instructions included in the replacement kit.
In addition, as a safety precaution, a double insulation structure has been adopted to protect the live part inside the connector from water intrusion, so that a short circuit will not occur even if the exterior is breached or damaged in anyway by unexpected accidents.
The KW04 Series saves time and expense associated with replacement, and at the same time achieves a high level of security. In addition, the product meets the European Conformity safety standards and is CE certified, making it a product that customers can use with confidence.
