TE Hybrid and EV Charging Solutions

TE's AMP+ charging inlet Type 2 is a modular system that is interchangeable with other inlets, with minimum impact on the body of the hybrid or electric vehicle. A smart assembly method uses a small number of parts and provides finger protection on power contacts. The charging inlets are validated and certified according to IEC 62196-1 and IEC 62196-2. Type 2 offers an optional connector locking device and a 90-degree wire exit that can be rotated. TE's AMP+ charging cables for hybrid and electric vehicles are specifically designed to meet the requirements of the international charging standard IEC 61851-1/-22. This standard defines several types of on-board vehicle interfaces such as type 1 for North America and Japan and type 2 for Europe with two charging modes including any wall power outlet, at home for example, and high-performance charging stations. Type 2 meets the IEC 61851-1 and IEC 62196-1 standards and specifications.
