Charging sockets with LED indicators and temperature measurement

29 September 2021 Interconnection

The new generation of type-2 Charx connect charging sockets from Phoenix Contact offers AC home charger and charging station manufacturers and users simplified installation and maintenance, enhanced safety and intuitive operation.

With the premium version, the first type-2 charging socket in the world with integrated, precise temperature sensors is offered. It enhances charging process safety by interrupting the process if there is overheating, thus protecting users against danger and their charging station against damage.

Another new feature is the coloured LED indicator integrated into the protective cover, which allows users to determine charging point status intuitively at a glance. The LEDs are freely controlled by the charging controller via pulse width modulation (PWM). Glowing, flashing and pulsating in all RGB colours are possible. With this feature, individual signalling can be configured for each status of a charging point in corporate design colours.

Alongside the premium charging socket, a basic version can also be ordered without an LED indicator and temperature sensors. Both versions have a modular system design consisting of the charging socket, protective cover and plug-in connecting cables. For charging infrastructure manufacturers, this gives maximum flexibility when installing charging points and it makes charging socket replacement during maintenance work much easier. Charging sockets and protective covers can be ordered individually or as a set. The charging sockets are available with three- or four-position locking actuators.

The maximum charging power is defined by the choice of the harness (available separately), which significantly reduces the number of different charging socket versions and reduces inventory costs in turn. The cable sets can be ordered in three performance classes (7 kW, 11 kW and 22 kW) and in two lengths (30 cm and 70 cm).
